Choosing a siding contractor is actually more important than what siding you choose in many ways. Why? Because even with the best siding available on the market will fail if not properly installed. So, if you are looking for a durable siding that will stand up to everything the sometimes manic Denver weather throws your way–begin by choosing a good contractor. But what exactly makes a good siding contractor?
5 Characteristics of The Best Siding Contractors
- A good siding contractor takes the time to get to know you and your home: Here at Scottish Home Improvements, we work so hard to build our relationships with our clients–it is who we are as a company. But we also get to know the idiosyncrasies of your home. This helps us better consult with you on your Denver siding project. The more we know about you and your home goals and needs–the better work we can do for you!
- A good siding contractor is insured: A siding company should always carry things like worker’s compensation and liability insurance–to avoid putting you or their workers in a bad situation, they should also be happy to show you these documents upon request.
- A good siding contractor will always give you everything in writing: Whether this is a contract with the agreed-upon date of completion or pricing that is clear and transparent–it should always be in writing. Dates and costs sometimes vary as the project moves forward but there should always be written notice and a change log to the contract when this happens.
- A good siding contractor has plenty of references, good online reviews, and a high BBB rating: If a siding contractor has reached the level of professionalism and is truly reputable, they should have numerous recommendations and positive online reviews. If they have an unhappy customer here and there–that is fairly normal but look to see if they responded to the critic and what they had to say. If they have a lot of unhappy clients–there is a reason–beware. Likewise, they should have very few to no BBB complaints.
- A good siding contractor should be transparent, clear and communicative: Any roofing company should be happy to have your business. Remember–If you have to wait for a callback or an overdue estimate of costs before you even sign a contract–you will most definitely have the same issues once the job is theirs. For this reason, choosing a siding contractor who shows you how important your time and job is to them from the get-go–is critical.
