The success of your siding replacement project doesn’t just depend on what material you pick or who you work with. How well you communicate with your contractor is the key to the success of your project.
In this post, UHQ Construction shares tips to ensure proper communication with your siding contractor.
Communication Isn’t a One-Time Thing
Communication between you and your contractor doesn’t end after the initial talk on how the project will go. Always keep an open line between you and the company so that they can act on any change of plans or additions to the project.
It’s also a good idea to establish how you two will get in touch. Whether through text messages or email, you can lessen delays and misunderstandings if each party knows how best to communicate with one another.
Schedule Weekly Meetings
Set a day and time each week for a routine meeting to discuss the current progress of your project. Take this opportunity to express concerns and inquire about the contractor’s other exterior services, especially if you have changes or add-ons in mind.
When asking questions, it also pays to be inquisitive. Ask your contractor what to expect during the project, what materials they’ll be using, and any arrangements you need to make during the actual replacement process.
Set Deadlines and Schedules
Finally, you and the contractor you’re working with must agree on a schedule and deadline for your siding project. While replacing old siding doesn’t make your home uninhabitable, it can interrupt your daily routine. Knowing when the work will be done and when it will end makes the entire project less of a hassle.
