Whether you are hiring gutter companies or siding contractors, it is important to get to know the professionals that are going to do the project. The industry may be mostly composed of upstanding businesses, but there are still some who might take advantage of you. That said, you should take your time ruling out any potential scammers.
GO Construction Services, LLC recommends asking a siding company a few important questions before signing a contract with one. Below are some of them:
What Siding Materials Are You Most Experienced With Installing?
Make sure that your contractors is qualified and experienced in working with the material they are offering or you intend to use. Different siding materials have varying requirements, which must be considered so as to ensure correct installation and long-lasting results. Inquire about the crew and the foreman’s experience, specifically. Since they will be the ones directly working on your siding replacement, they should be knowledgeable and skilled with specific siding materials.
How Much Insulation Can the Proposed Siding Material Provide?
Find out how much insulation the material can provide. And, if possible, are there options to boost the insulation of a specific material? All siding materials have an R-value, which indicates their capacity to provide insulation to your home. Furthermore, several siding options also offer the option to increase their insulation properties. Of course, this question also asks about extra costs that you may need to pay. Siding contractors should also be able to adequately discuss your options and provide appropriate quotes.
What Warranties Are Included in Your Work and/or Products?
It’s a reasonable expectation for the products to come with a warranty upon completion of the job. Typically, such warranties provide at least 10 years of coverage. Some are even able to cover siding for up to 50 years, but with certain limitations. Don’t forget to ask about guarantees on the contractor’s service or workmanship too. These should be at least half a year or up to 10 years.
