When it comes to big home improvement investments like re-siding your home, you shouldn’t hire just any contractor to handle the job. Make sure that the contractor has an impeccable record in the home improvement industry to avoid getting duped by scammers proliferating in the area. You will also want to make sure that the contractor you’ll be hiring really has the experience and expertise to install siding in Minneapolis MN to avoid the exasperating process of disputing a claim just to get the siding installation right.
So how can you be sure that you’re hiring the right contractor for your siding job? Simple—just do a background check. Follow these steps and you’ll certainly get the right siding contractor for the job:
- Check if the contractor is fully licensed and insured. You can ask the contractor directly, or you can check the contractor’s website to get the info you need.
- Ask the contractor for references. Collect at least three names and contact numbers of the contractor’s previous jobs. Call the given references and ask them about the contractor and how they handled the job: How was the job? Did you encounter any problems during and/or after the project was done? Were you satisfied with the contractor’s job? Did the contractor communicate well? Did the contractor clean up after? Would you hire the contractor again in the future? Would you recommend the contractor to your relatives or friends?
- Check out the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website and see the contractor’s reviews. Check if there are complaints about the contractor or if the contractor has any unresolved customer complaints on record.
- Check if the contractor has received any awards. Angie’s List Super Service Award, BBB Integrity Award, Guildmaster Award for Service Excellence, and the like are just a few. It’s also a good sign if the contractor is affiliated with leading siding manufacturers like James Hardie® (or, better yet, is a Preferred Remodeler).
