If you have decided to put siding up on your home a siding contractor is who you would call to get the job done. No matter the size of the job, if you feel you could possibly save some money and do it yourself, save yourself the trouble and hire an experienced contractor to get the job done properly and efficiently.
While searching for a siding contractor it would be beneficial to examine some of their previous work. Also, make sure the contractor or company is legitimate. Confirm that the insurance they carry and their state license is valid and current. A good way to find an established siding contractor would be to ask friends and family who have previously had siding installed or check your local yellow pages. Another option is to go online and check out multiple home improvement related websites.
Once you have narrowed down both the type of siding you want installed and the contractor that you want to install it, ask the contractor for his opinion on the siding chosen. Have him meet you out at the location and show him in detail what the process entails before he gives you a price to do it. Let him know ahead of time of any old siding that needs to be removed before the new is installed. Let the contractor know of the date you would like the job completed. The contractor’s estimate should be compared to the way it is measured so it’s easy for you to understand what you’re being charged. Agree on the way payment will be handled before the job is started and clarify that everything will be cleaned up and hauled off after completion. Also, thoroughly read through the contract so you fully understand the installation process from start to finish.
