How to Choose a Vinyl Siding Company

How to Choose a Vinyl Siding Company

Residing your home requires an investment of your time and money. Vinyl siding is considered to be one of the best options because of its breadth of selection in color, style and textures. Vinyl siding requires very little maintenance and can keep your home looking beautiful for years to come. Once you have made the decision to reside your home, it’s important to ensure your investment is going to be properly installed.

When choosing the right vinyl siding contractor, you’ll want to examine more than just the price. The lowest price may not always be the best option. Improperly installed siding may result in additional, unneeded costs and cause problems for your family. The vinyl siding you paid for may buckle or allow moisture into your home if it is not fastened correctly.

Before you make a final decision on which vinyl siding contractor you will use, you’ll want to find out the answers to the following questions.

What is the full name and address of the company? A reputable vinyl siding company will always be able to provide you with their complete address and name. Hiring a local vinyl siding company, such as Advanced Window Systems, who are fully licensed and insured in both Connecticut and Massachusetts, may increase the likelihood you will receive better quality service.

Can the company provide referrals or references of previously completed jobs? Vinyl siding companies with established and solid reputations, should be able to give you a list of references as well as photos of previous work. When checking in with a reference you’ll want to ask about the quality of the work performed, the timeliness and satisfaction rating, as well as if they’d recommend that particular contractor again.

How long has the company been in business? As a general rule of thumb, the longer a company has been in business, the better work they will produce. A company who has been in business for less than three years may still have a learning curve or be potentially unstable. While every company starts somewhere, you’ll want to do some research about the history of the company before deciding to work with them.

What are the payment terms? Before a vinyl siding contractor begins working on your home, it’s a good idea to lay out the schedule, terms, and method of payment. It is recommended that you do not pay more than half of what the job will cost until the work has actually started. You’ll want to be cautious, but keep in mind if you hold out on paying too much, there is the possibility of a contractor leaving the job incomplete. It is then even more difficult to find another contractor to finish a job that was not started by them.
