In order to achieve a safe, comfortable and climate-controlled home, your siding—or the outer cladding of the house—needs to be correctly installed. Before you sign on the dotted line and make a commitment with a siding and roofing contractor, make sure to ask a series of important questions to know whether or not you are hiring the right person to execute the task.
1. “How many years of experience do you have?”
If a siding installer has maintained good business relationships in the local area for several years, they may have a reputation to uphold. Ask your contractor for a business card with the company name, phone number and address. It may be a good idea to avoid installers that use a post office box, a possible indication that they are out-of-towners looking for a quick buck.
2. “Do you have a business license and insurance?
Before you hire a siding or roofing contractor, be sure they are properly licensed or registered in your state to perform the work. It is also beneficial to verify their insurance coverage to protect yourself from financial and legal liability in the event of an accident.
3. “What product and workmanship warranties do you offer?”
It is important to confirm whether or not the contractor carries product and workmanship warranties for your siding installation job. This is to avoid shelling out thousands of dollars if extensive repairs are needed in the future.
4. “Does your estimate include all costs?”
Be sure that the estimate includes labor, materials, applicable permits, waste removal and other contractor incidental costs. Keep in mind, however, that unforeseen problems may be uncovered when your existing siding is removed. If you choose to let the contractor complete the repairs, it may increase the total cost of your project.
