Like in any remodel, choosing the right contractor for your siding project goes beyond comparing estimates. There’s more to scrutinize in home improvement companies than just the quotes they give you.
As the leader in everything siding in Connecticut, Vinylume wants to share the key questions you should ask your contractor. Use the following to size up any company you encounter:
How Long Have You Been in Business?
In the building industry, a company with many years in the business is more likely to get the job. Less than three years might indicate a lack of experience or business instability. While it’s not reasonable to consider start-ups unworthy of your project, the fact remains that the team that has already proven its mettle will be more capable of getting the job done.
Our company has been in business since 1951. From cedar to vinyl siding in Connecticut, we’ve long been masters of exterior remodeling, serving many homes over the long years. Our wealth of experience speaks of the solid reputation we have built and protected over the decades.
What Are Your Credentials?
This is one of the first questions you should ask for because it already answers many of the concerns you may have about your contractor. For companies to earn just one manufacturer certification, they must carry adequate insurance, meet strict standards, and performs well in all areas in business.
Our company takes pride in the long list of certifications under our belt. To name a few, we are a CertainTeed 5-Star Siding Contractor and a Certified Vinyl Siding Installer by the Vinyl Siding Institute. Indeed, these certifications are synonymous with excellence in vinyl siding in CT.
Do You Provide Workmanship Warranty?
Manufacturer warranties only cover material defects, not installation. If the issue is workmanship-related, the siding brand wouldn’t cover the work needed to fix the job that should’ve been done right the first time. Needless to say, your contractor should provide a workmanship guarantee to protect yourself from unnecessary expenses.
Apart from our comprehensive manufacturer warranties, we also provide our very own Triple Protection workmanship guarantee. In essence, this means we’ll repair any problem that may arise due to our installation for the next 20 years at no cost.
With our strong qualifications, we bring plenty of advantages to any siding job. If you have any more questions or concerns, call Vinylume now at (866) 244-8029 and we’ll be happy to assist you.
