6 Advantages of Hiring a Professional Siding Contractor
With the amount of information available online, it’s tempting to just take the DIY route with everything. While certain home improvements can be done without hiring professionals, siding replacement (and other similar projects) is best left to a professional siding contractor.
Jones and Associates explains why.
Professionals are licensed and insured – A contractor’s license is your assurance that the installation will comply with local building codes. This also allows the contractor to expedite the paperwork involving building permits, which would involve a lot of legwork if you decide to tackle siding installation on your own. The insurance—typically including general liability insurance and workers’ comp—will ensure that you’re protected against liability for accidental property damage or injuries.
The signed contract offers legal protection – A signed quotation or contract is a legally-binding guarantee from the siding contractor. This means the siding replacement project will be finished on a specific date, with the installation quality as promised, and to your satisfaction.
Professionals can make expert recommendations – Learning everything from scratch—or worse, as you go—can result in a lot of waste. There’s also the chance that you might miss out on better siding options just because it didn’t come up during your research. Professionals, on the other hand, know their products inside and out and can help you get siding that truly matches your needs.
Professionals have the tools for the job – Siding installations typically take several years in between. Unless you already have the installation tools on hand, chances are you’ll need to buy a new set of tools, use them once, then store them in a shed or sell them online at a fraction of the original price. Hiring professionals eliminates this problem.
Professionals have more extensive warranty coverage – If you’re installing your siding DIY, your warranties would likely extend to just the materials. Correcting problems that arise from installation errors will have to come out of your own pocket. Most professionals offer workmanship warranties; in fact, at Jones and Associates, we offer 10 years that cover this in addition to better factory warranties.
It’s simply much easier – Professional siding contractors, such as ourselves, take care of the process from initial planning to final cleanup. No heavy lifting, no dangerous tools to handle, and finishes faster, too, giving you more time for smaller DIY projects.
