Here in the greater Indianapolis area, a siding replacement project costs between $17,000 and $20,000, on average. When you’re investing that kind of money into your home, you want to make sure the project is done right the first time. The best way to do that is by hiring a professional, experienced siding contractor for the job.
Before you decide who to hire, read through this list of the most important questions to ask your contractor to help you make the right decision for your home.
1. How Much Experience Do You Have?
Before you hire a contractor to work on your home, it’s important to verify that they have experience doing the type of work you need to be done. While every contractor has to start somewhere, you don’t want to risk hiring a novice for a project as important as siding replacement.
Here at UHQ Construction, we’ve been installing siding for Indianapolis homeowners since 2014 and our experience shows in the quality of the work that we do. We’re dedicated to our craft and we don’t believe in skimping on materials or workmanship.
2. What Types of Materials Do You Use?
When you’re planning a siding replacement project, you have to make an important decision about which siding material to choose. To help you make your choice, start by asking your contractor about which materials they offer.
At UHQ Construction, we proudly offer James Hardie fiber cement siding and Mastic vinyl siding so you can choose the best material for your home. As expert installers for both of these materials, we can answer any questions you have about them and help you decide which one is the right option for you.
3. Do You Have Any Certifications?
To help ensure that you hire an expert siding installer, it’s also a good idea to ask your contractor if they have any certifications. This will help give you a better idea of the level of understanding they have about the products they sell.
The UHQ Construction team believes in going above and beyond to learn as much as we can about the products we install. We’re proud to be a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor as well as a Mastic Siding Preferred Contractor. This means that we’ve put in the time and effort to learn the ins and outs of these products and are experts in how to install them correctly.
4. Can I See a Portfolio of Your Work?
The best way to get a sense of what you can expect from a particular siding installer is to look at the work they’ve done for other homeowners. If you like what you see in their portfolio, it’s a good indication that you’ll be happy they do with the work on your home too.
Don’t hesitate to ask to see examples of previous work. After all, a great siding installer wants to shout about their work from the rooftops! You can see an overview of the projects we’ve done for homeowners like you at any time on our website.
5. How Do I Clean and Maintain My New Siding?
Finally, make sure you protect your investment by asking your siding contractor about how to properly care for your new siding. One of the reasons we love James Hardie and Mastic siding products is because they require less maintenance than other siding materials. This gives you more time to focus on the more important things in life!
Once we complete your siding installation, we’ll give you the proper care instructions to follow so your investment will last for decades.
