4 Things You Need to Ask Before Hiring a Siding Contractor
Being a good interviewer is key to hiring the right siding contractor. As all companies are prepared to put their best foot forward, you must do your due diligence to ensure you choose the one truly up for the task.
To size up your prospects properly, ask these important questions:
1. What Materials Do You Offer?
Homeowners gravitate toward companies that offer different products because everyone loves to have options. However, it actually pays to hire a siding contractor that specializes in only a single material. Remember, a jack of all trades is a master of none.
At Jones and Associates, we only install rugged steel siding because it combats all the climatic quirks of West Texas. This is the most sensible cladding material to weatherproof and beautify the homes in our region while eliminating costly maintenance.
2. Are You Insured?
Insurance is a mark of a responsible siding contractor. Uninsured companies might leave you liable when someone gets hurt in your home during the project. Unfair as it may be, but you may be held accountable for compensating injured workers if the accident happens on your property. To avoid the rigors of litigation and safeguard your finances against such expenses, hire an adequately-insured company.
3. Do You Have Manufacturer Certifications?
Certification programs exist to tell which companies are capable to deliver faultless services. Some contractors may be allowed to offer certain products, but manufacturers don’t stand behind the work of non-certified installers.
At Jones and Associates, we take pride in being certified by all of
the brands we represent. We invest our time, money, and energy to maintain our hard-earned certifications to extend you stellar manufacturer warranties and give more value for your money.
4. How Long is Your Workmanship Warranty?
A reliable siding contractor provides a lengthy workmanship warranty to protect you against defects in installation. Some companies provide installation coverage, but only during the early years when workmanship issues are less likely to present themselves.
Unlike most of our competitors, our very own workmanship guarantee is good for 10 years. With more than 25 years in the business, you know we’ll be around to honor our warranty if necessary any time in the next decade.
