Your home’s siding is one of the most prominent parts of your home. After all, it makes up most of your home’s exterior which is why your choice of siding is very important in improving your home’s value, curb appeal, as well as energy efficiency. It’s also equally important to pick the right siding contractor, whether you’re using vinyl siding, or fiber cement. You can gauge the capabilities of your prospective siding contractor by asking them a few important questions.
In this post, A1 Siding & Roofing, the leading siding company, shares these questions with you.
What Kinds of Jobs Have You Completed?
While a company can share all of their certifications and credentials, another factor that carries a lot of weight is their actual performance and customer feedback. This is why it’s important to see if they are willing to share their testimonials and samples of their completed projects to gauge their skill level. Thankfully, most siding installation companies provide these details on their website or as a part of their sales presentation. If this isn’t available, make sure that you ask them this question.
Referrals also give you an option to get first hand feedback from other homeowners. It’s a good idea to contact three clients who have previously worked with them and ask them how their experience with your prospective contractor was. If it’s generally positive, go ahead by all means.
Can You Provide a Certificate of Insurance?
When you ask this question, the only acceptable answer is yes, and only yes. If not, steer clear of them and look for another contractor. The certificate of insurance is important in case an accident occurs with the contractor, the crew, or with your property. Having insurance will cover all of the bills. If not, the responsibility will fall on you since it all occurred on your property. It releases the owner from all liability.
