HomeBlog9 Questions To Ask When Looking For a Siding Contractor

Hiring a siding contractor in North Carolina is a decision that should not be taken lightly. It is prudent not just to hire the one that offers you the cheapest deal. Whether you live in Raleigh, Fayetteville, or Wilmington, it’s always a good idea to ask them a few questions to make sure they are right for your house.


1) What is the name of your business?

Contractors with a physical location are usually those with the most experience. This question will also allow you to look up the company and read reviews from previous customers.

2) How many years of experience do you have?

Ideally, this company has been around for at least several years and can handle unexpected challenges should they arise.

3) Do you have references that I could get in touch with?

Call people who they have worked with in the past and get a sense for both who they are as a company and their style as a siding contractor. If a siding contractor cannot provide references, that may be a red flag.

4) Have you handled a project similar to my home before?

This question can give you a sense of their experience beyond work as a siding contractor and decide whether they are the best fit for your house in particular.

5) Do you have certifications or are you members of any organizations?

For example, if you are looking to install vinyl siding in your home, you might ask them what certifications they have that will insure that you are taken care of when it comes to warranties and installation.

6) Do you offer warranties?

Contractors should offer a warranty policy. Find out what they offer before you choose a contractor to make sure that if anything unexpected arises, they will be able to offer siding installation or anything else to repair potential damage.

7) Can I see any photos of houses you have worked on?

Photos might give you a sense of what the final project will look like and whether you want to invest time and money into it.

8) What brand of siding do you use?

This will give you a sense of both the price estimate and the style the contractor will be completing your home in.

9) What are your estimates on time?

Ask their estimate on time for project completion. This will make certain that your and their expectations for completion of the house are met.
