Spring is here in Colorado (a little early) but here to stay none the less, and summer is right around the corner. The air is getting warmer day by day and around Littleton, a fair amount of flowers are already up! For residents of Littleton, this means drinking beers on the patio of Breckenridge brewery and maybe heading up to the mountains for a hike. Spring definitely means a bunch of fun outdoor activities, but it also means it is time to repair any damage done to your home this winter. If new siding is on the horizon, here are some questions we, at Colorado Siding, often get asked that are good for you to pose to any potential contractor as well.
4 Important questions for you to ask potential contractors.
- DO YOU USE SUB-CONTRACTORS?
Our answer is no. We do all of our work ourselves because our good name is based on our commitment to quality. Sometimes, after taking on a siding project, some contractors will outsource the work. Other companies might sell your project or portions of it to another company, meaning you have no say over the quality of the job performed. This could result in questionable outcomes so, you should always ask if this is something you are not okay with.
- DO YOU OFFER ANY GUARANTEES OR WARRANTIES?
Our answer is yes- both our own and through our James Hardie siding partner. Any reputable siding contractor will offer some kind of warranty or guarantee on the work completed. Even with the most competent contractor, mistakes can happen so, you need one that will admit to them and fix them for free, as long as it is covered under their guidelines.
- CAN YOU PROVIDE REFERENCES?
Absolutely and so should any reputable siding contractor. The best way to know you’re dealing with a good contractor is simply to ask for references from those who have used them before. Get about five names and contact information and follow through with calls. Always check the BBB rating and social media is a great way to check reviews as well.
- DO YOU INSTALL JAMES HARDIE SIDING?
Yes! We are actually a James Hardie Elite Premiere partner–the highest level a company can achieve with James Hardie. Every contractor with your best interest in mind will recommend James Hardie Siding. It’s common knowledge that this type of siding is the best on the market since it has won many awards and is built to last. It’s made of fiber cement, which makes it strong, but flexible, and it comes in a number of designs and styles.
Since spring is here early this year you have more time to get a jump on your new siding and avoid spending your summer handling it. Definitely, the most important choice you have is, who you hire to install your siding. This one decision can have long-lasting effects on the durability and appearance of your home’s siding. At Colorado Siding, our premium products and commitment to perfect customer service set us apart from our competitors. We also have an A + BBB rating and James Hardie’s highest rating. Like any reputable siding contractor, we give you the one on one attention needed for the smoothest, stress-free installation possible.
