Home improvement projects are rarely a small deal. Even the simplest one can involve considerable amounts of planning, budget and time management to complete. With so much at stake, finding the right siding and window contractors is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. One quick Google search will likely return thousands of results that filtering through them is a daunting task.
You can narrow down your search a little bit by doing some due diligence. Before you sign any contracts, our experts at Silver Leaf Contracting recommends asking the following questions to weed out the bad candidates.
Ask for Credentials
It’s terribly inconvenient to be caught off-guard with unlicensed siding, roofing and window companies right in the middle of a job. You can save yourself a lot of trouble by making sure all the necessary paperwork and certification and licenses are in place before you start anything. Don’t forget to also check for insurance and workers comp just to keep your bases covered.
Experience and References
Next, you want to make sure that the quality of your installation is up to par to your standards and specifications. Contracting companies with at least a decade or more of experience is usually a good sign. In addition, ask for references, particularly on past jobs and check with previous clients on how well the contractors handled the job.
How Is the Process
Don’t forget to ask your window and siding companies about how the job will go from start to finish. Feel free to have them walk you through the usual process to get a feel of the whole project. Don’t hesitate to ask all pertinent questions to help you understand the installation better.
