3 Questions to Ask Siding and Replacement Window Companies
When you need work done on your home’s exterior, you don’t want to trust just anyone. After all, you’ll have to live with the result of their work. So when it comes to choosing from the available siding and replacement window companies, it’s not a decision you want to make hastily. It helps to have a list of questions to ask any siding and replacement window company so you can make an informed decision before you hire them.
Are You Licensed, Bonded, and Insured?
This is the first question to ask any company that you hire to work on your home. Legally, for any siding and replacement window company to work on your home, they must be licensed. They are not legally required to be insured, but it’s helpful for you if they are — and it’s good to know what kind of insurance they have. If you hire an insured company, especially one with worker’s compensation, you won’t be held liable for any mishaps that may happen on the job. “Bonded” means that they have a bond in escrow by a third party in order to reimburse you should they not be able to finish the project to your satisfaction.
Will You Inspect My Home First?
It’s difficult for any siding and replacement window company to know just what they’re getting into if they haven’t seen your home first, which is why you should never trust a company that offers to give you a quote and make a bid on your project after only a brief phone call. At XteriorPRO, we schedule a needs analysis appointment after the initial communication. We ask thorough questions and perform an inspection before ever making a proposal, so we can be totally confident in our ability to complete your project.
How Can I Get In Touch With You?
Communication is key. If you think of any more questions the day after speaking with the company, you want to be able to get back in touch with them without having to start at step one again. A reliable siding and replacement window company will have a person you can contact about your project, someone knowledgeable enough to answer any questions you might have with confidence.
