Are you getting ready to replace the outdated siding on your home? The best place to start is to find trustworthy siding contractors that care about you and your vision for your home. As a siding company ourselves, our team at Selig Construction understands what it takes to make a project successful.
That’s why we wanted to share some helpful information with you that will help guide you through the initial parts of your siding renovations. Let’s dive into six important questions you should ask a siding company before you hire them:
- How Long Have You Been in Business?
- Are You Professionally Licensed to Install Siding?
- Do You Use Subcontractors for Projects?
- Do You Offer Guarantees or Warranties?
- How Long Does a Siding Project with Your Team Typically Take?
- What is Your Waste Removal Process After a Project is Done?
1. How Long Have You Been in Business?
One quick way to judge a siding company’s level of experience is simply how long they have been in business. In many cases, you’ll feel more comfortable choosing a siding company that has decades of experience versus just a few years. This number also will demonstrate the stability and longevity of a company, which can add to your overall peace of mind.
2. Are You Professionally Licensed to Install Siding?
Years of industry experience alone isn’t enough to fully judge how good a siding company is, which is why it will also be helpful to ask about their credentials, certifications, ratings, licenses, and affiliations.
This information will give you a better idea of their reputation as well as what kinds of products they use and their connections to well-established associations. It’s also helpful to ask for references!
3. Do You Use Subcontractors for Projects?
Some businesses will use in-house teams for all their projects while others may hire subcontractors to complete a job. Both are viable options that can lead to successful renovations, but it still is good information to know off the bat. Depending on your own comfort levels, you may want to work with in-house professionals only.
4. Do You Offer Guarantees or Warranties?
Undergoing a remodel is a large feat, so you’re going to want to be sure your investment is protected. The good news is many companies will offer a worry-free guarantee or specific warranties, so you don’t have to stress about your new siding for years to come. Some common warranties include:
- Product Warranties
- Manufacturer Warranties
- Workmanship Warranties
5. How Long Does a Siding Project with Your Team Typically Take?
There’s no way you can get around the more inconvenient aspects of a remodel. This includes having contractors around your house during the project. To help you plan around this, be sure to ask your siding contractors how long the project should take. Most professionals should have an idea after an initial consultation.
6. What is Your Waste Removal Process After a Project is Done?
After finishing the project, a quality siding team will take care of all the clean-up in an effective manner. At the end of the day, you shouldn’t have to do any type of cleaning around your property and should be left with a space that looks brand new.
