I'd bet since you're reading this article you're looking for a company to install new siding on your Boston area home. We hope you choose Everlast Composite Siding but either way these tips will help you when hiring a Boston Siding Contractor. There are lots of carpenters that can install siding, but only a few do so full-time and in an expert fashion. Use the questions below (beyond the standard request for licensing, insurance, and referrals) to determine if the company you're considering is the right choice for your siding project.
1. How Long Has He Been in Business?
Although it's not always necessary to work with a company that's been in business for "25 years", you'll want to be careful not to hire someone who has a short track record or too little experience. Homes in Massachusetts are all unique, and often tricky to work with. Hiring a siding installer that has seen it all will aid in the efficiency and durability of your project.
2. Does She Talk A Lot About Water Management?
It sounds silly, but the number one enemy of any siding product, or rather, your home beneath any siding product is WATER. Siding may look nice on the surface, but if it's not installed properly and with the proper components, it may be rotting away your house with out you even knowing it. Water management is key to siding longevity.
3. Is He Confident in His Own Skin?
Yes there are some people who are less comfortable in social situations and in communicating with strangers, and we're not referring to the shy guy. But in general, if it looks like a snake, sounds like a snake, and slithers like a snake -- It's probably a snake! People who are dishonest are usually uncomfortable in sales situations and it shows. Be wary!
4. Is She Knowledgeable About All Siding Products?
The climate in Boston is unique to say the least. We see drastic shifts in temperature, moisture, wind, and precipitation. You'll want a siding product that can withstand all these elements for decades to come, and look beautiful at the same time. Choose a Boston Siding Contractor that understands these factors and can speak knowledgeably about all the options and alternatives.
