Questions to Ask Contractors from Siding Companies

Remember that you only want the best from your siding project. With that in mind, ensure you ask the right question when the time to interview your contractor comes. When you don’t ask the relevant questions, you may end up falling victim to substandard work at the end of it. Here are the best questions to ask.  More about Chesapeake, VA can be seen here.

Are you insured?

A license is proof contractors are allowed to practice their trade in the state. Make sure to ask for their license numbers and proof of workers’ compensation, which is a requirement in most states. Workers’ compensation insurance protects you from liabilities should an accident occur on your property.  Click here to read about the Advantages of Hiring Local Siding Companies.

Do you hire subcontractors?

 The use of subcontractors is a red flag for any contractor. When contractors hire a subcontractor, they’re essentially hiring someone else to do the job you paid them to do. The problem with hiring subcontractors is that there’s no guarantee they’re qualified for the job and can potentially compromise the quality of the project.

Do you have any certifications?

 Certifications are proof a contractor has undergone additional training. If you’re using a specific brand, it’d be a good idea to look for factory-certified contractors who are specifically trained to install a particular product.
