If you want to freshen up your home’s appearance, having new vinyl siding installed will do it. You can choose to have the same color siding you currently have installed, or choose a different color for a more radical change. Installing vinyl siding is really not a DIY job for most homeowners: not only is it awkward to handle the longer pieces of siding, particularly on a ladder, it’s essential to maintain a strict attention to detail throughout the process to get the best results.
With that in mind, here’s what you need to know about choosing a vinyl siding contractor for the South Shore.
Consider the quality of the product first. Most vinyl siding contractors have products they prefer to work with – we ourselves work exclusively with premium sidings, which may cost slightly more but deliver far better performance, colorfastness, and durability than cheaper alternatives. Vinyl siding can be installed horizontally or vertically; choosing which is best for your home is a personal decision, but you want to be sure your vinyl siding contractor has access to and experience with that type of siding.
Ask for references. Checking vinyl siding references is one of the easiest things to do. You don’t even have to call anyone: just drive around the neighborhood and look at the addresses the vinyl siding contractor has provided. Does the siding look nice? Would you be proud to have your home look the same way? It is a good idea to connect with previous customers if you can to discover what their experience with the vinyl siding contractor was like. Were they professional, efficient, and respectful of the homeowner’s time and property? You can learn a lot from talking to references, and any reputable vinyl siding contractor should be happy to provide them.
