Tips for Hiring a Siding Contractor

Hiring someone to work on your home is always a stressful process. Not only are you trusting them to improve your home, but you’re also spending a lot of money to do so! Home improvement projects aren’t the time to skimp or hire the first person you find. Siding contractors are responsible for properly installing and maintaining your siding. If the job isn’t done right, your home is at risk for water leaks, poor temperature control, pests, and more! Keep these things in mind when you’re looking for your next siding contractor. 

Check Reviews and References  

The internet is a powerful tool – don’t be afraid to use it to your advantage! Spend time thoroughly researching any siding contractors that you’re considering. Look at online reviews, testimonials, and don’t be afraid to ask the contractor for references! Pay attention to more than just the finished product too. Look for reviews about professionalism, timeliness, value, and the quality of the work. Avoid hiring a siding contractor who seems to have minimal reviews and references available for you to review. 

Find the Best Overall Value 

Hiring a good siding contractor doesn’t mean hiring the cheapest, but it also doesn’t mean you need to splurge on the most expensive contractor either! Finding the best overall value means finding someone with reasonable prices and high-quality work. Some contractors have inflated prices for no real reason, while other have shockingly cheap prices because their work isn’t good quality. Get price quotes from multiple different siding contractors in your area so it’ll be easy to compare and determine what the best value will be. 

Hire a Licensed and Insured Contractor 

Anytime you’re hiring someone to work on your home, you need to know that they’re properly licensed and insured. This protects you in the event that the contractor or one of their employees is injured on the job. Their insurance should also offer protection in case they cause damage to your home. Never hire someone who isn’t fully licensed and insured as a contractor in your state! 

Go With Your Gut 

All the practicalities aside, hire a contractor that you feel confident in. Don’t hire someone who makes you feel uneasy or that you don’t trust completely. Find someone who communicates clearly, understands what you need, and is passionate about achieving a great end result.
