6 Important Questions to Ask Your Siding Contractor

A helpful aspect of preparing for an upcoming siding replacement project is knowing what to expect. It helps reduce stress levels, prepares you for dealing with irregularities, and makes communicating with siding contractors easier.

So before your upcoming project begins, ask your contractor these questions.

  1. What is the timetable? Knowing the installation date is not enough, especially when handling big projects like siding or roof replacement. You’ll likely have delivery trucks may coming back and forth during the days leading up to the installation date, so knowing the timetable helps you easily coordinate with the contractor if you won’t be there to let them in.

  2. Who will be here? Siding installation can take several days depending on the project size, so it’s important that you know who will be in charge, so you know who to call in case of updates or questions.

  3. What is your process for protecting my property? Siding installation won’t affect your interior, but your lawn, windows, or deck could get damaged if the workers aren’t careful. At DryTech Roofing LLC, we take every measure to protect your property by applying protective covers on areas surrounding the workspaces and making sure that our installers follow clearly-defined work areas.

  4. Do you have any concerns about the project? Experienced siding contractors will know if there are potential problems that may trigger changes in the middle of the project. Perhaps the contractor will find some insulation or moisture problem with the walls during the inspection. These things have to be addressed before new siding is installed. Speaking for ourselves, we are upfront with our clients regarding potential problems that we find, especially if it could compromise the installation.

  5. What is your process if there’s a change order? Change orders are stated in the contract. In case it isn’t, ask your contractor about it and get the answer in writing. Make sure it states how changes will be implemented and who to contact about it.

  6. How do I reach you? In addition to the contact number indicated on their websites, ask the contractor and/or the team leader for their mobile number plus an email address in case you need to send photos or documents online.

Whatever the scale of the project, proper planning and constant communication help make the project proceed smoothly. This is what we aim for at DryTech Roofing LLC.
