When you need siding repair, you should look for an expert. In the hands of an amateur, your siding project can cost you more money. A professional can give you a quality repair that can serve as an investment for the next 20 years or more. To find them, though, you need to ask your prospects the right questions. These questions can help you, and here’s why.
Q: Are You Licensed and Insured?
The difference between an expert and an amateur is an amateur isn’t licensed for home improvement. They also won’t have insurance coverage for any accidents or property damage during the project. Professionals do, and they make sure that you are aware of it. Verify if the license is allowed by your state (if required), and read the insurance policy to be safe.
Q: What Payment Schedule Is Expected?
The right contractors know how to properly collect their fees. That’s why quality contractors ask for payments in installments. They charge you for payments after each phase of the siding project and in reasonable amounts. Don’t trust contractors who demand full payment before the project starts.
Q: Do You Have Referrals?
People who have hired your contractor candidate know how they operate. Asking them about the service they received is a good way of knowing how the company operates. Having many clients is also a good sign. It means your contractor has previously successfully done many projects. If they know how to do it right, then they can definitely do it right for you.
Q: Do You Have James Hardie® Siding?
