Planning to replace your current siding or do you need siding repair done? It’s important that you choose the right contractor for the job since your exterior wall covering protects your home and improves its frontage. Read on as 3JM Exteriors, Inc. lists four questions you should always ask your prospective siding contractor.
1. How Long Have You Been a Siding Professional?
The most obvious question to ask and arguably one of the most important; make sure to find out how long your prospective contractor has been working as a siding professional. The longer they’ve been operating, the more knowledge they have about installations and repair work.
3JM Exteriors, Inc. has been a general contractor for roofing and siding for over 50 years. Our combined experience allows us to work on siding projects no matter the size or difficulty.
2. What Siding Options Do You Offer?
It’s also a good idea to learn what siding materials your prospective contractor uses. Not all siding is made equally after all, and some perform better under certain conditions. Our team offers three standard siding materials – vinyl, aluminum, and fiber cement. Each one has their own areas they excel in, but all of them surpass wood shingles in every aspect. So whether you want the style of vinyl or the durability of fiber cement, you can count on us to install only the highest quality siding systems on your home.
3. Are You Licensed And Insured By the State?
Asking for the siding contractor’s license gives you an idea if they can really provide what they’re selling. The license is basically your guarantee that your prospective contractor can back up their claims, while the insurance protects you from any problems that you may encounter.
4. How Long Will the Installation and Repair Take?
Installing siding is fairly easy and can be done within the same day, while repair work depends on the extent of the damage your siding has sustained. Your prospective siding contractor should be able to give you a rough estimate of when your siding project will be completed.
