If it’s time to replace or repair your existing siding, the first thing you should do is find yourself a reputable siding company. While most companies are trustworthy and experienced, there are some siding and roof maintenance companies out there that are sketchy, to say the least.
When it comes to something as important as your home’s siding, there’s probably no greater mistake than working with a siding company that has a history of shoddy work and shady dealings. n today’s post, Affordable Roofing, Siding and Gutters shares three major red flags to watch out for to ensure that you find a company that has your best interests in mind.
Red Flag #1: No Local Address
One of the most important things you can ask any contractor is if they have a local office. It doesn’t matter if you need a roof repair or are having new gutters installed, going local is always best. While most contractors are honest and hardworking, there are companies out there that are only out to make a quick buck. Making sure the company you’re working with has an office nearby means that you can easily get in touch with them should problems arise after the installation.
Red Flag #2: No Warranties or Guarantees
Any contractor worth their salt will be more than willing to stand behind the quality of their work. If they don’t offer any assurances for their workmanship, then you should probably steer clear of them. Most siding manufacturers will also offer a warranty for their products with some guaranteeing up to fifty years on average.
Red Flag #3: No References or Portfolio
A good contractor will be more than willing to show examples of completed work and provide references to happy customers even without being asked. Just like you wouldn’t hire a wedding photographer without seeing samples of their work, you also shouldn’t hire a siding contractor without first speaking to a few of their previous clients. A company that’s unwilling or unable to provide references or samples of their work should be avoided at all costs.
