Tips on Finding the Best Siding Contractor

Brought to you by Armorvue Home Exteriors of Cleveland, OH

Getting your home sided is an exciting time. Not only is it a chance to change the aesthetic appearance of your house but also save money in the future with lower energy bills. However, siding jobs are only as good as the siding company you use. Improperly installed siding is unfortunately common and can lead to significant costs down the road. Worse case: it could void your factory warranty entirely, leaving you with little recourse. For reasons such as this, the folks at Armorvue Home Exteriors of Cleveland, OH insist that it’s just as important to evaluate your siding contractor as closely as you would any other home improvement professional. The solution is to perform your due diligence. Besides checking a company’s online feedback, Armorvue suggests a few questions to ask any siding company upfront you are considering using.

Is the siding installation contractor reputable?

The number one thing you want from a siding contractor is a great reputation. Trying to save a few bucks by signing up a contractor with no local reputation could be one of the most costly decisions you can make.  Ask your potential contractor for local references. After you get them, be sure you contact each one, and try to do a drive-by to see how at least one of the jobs look.

Do they have full insurance?

Professional siding contractors should have general liability coverage along with workman’s compensation insurance. Having these two ensures that you, as a homeowner, are protected in case damage to your property occurs during installation. In addition, if a worker gets injured on site, it could be you and your homeowners’ insurance liable for the medical bills. This is why workman’s compensation insurance is a must.

How long have they been in business?

The longer a company has been in business, the more likely they are to have a robust business model employing skilled, experienced contractors. While newer companies are still valid options to consider, you can rarely beat the workmanship and product satisfaction of an established home improvement company.

Does your siding contractor offer warranties?

In general, there are two warranties to consider. One is the manufacturer’s warranty, which covers the siding material against product defects. The other is a workmanship warranty. This is provided by the contractor and is a measure of protection against installation problems. Any good contractor will be willing to back up his/her work with a workmanship warranty.
