If your siding has been damaged, either from storms or general wear and tear, you need an experienced house siding company. In central Minnesota, we get hit by so many storms, eventually this advice will apply to you.
Whatever you do, don’t hire a sider who is just starting out on their own for these 5 reasons.
1. Industry Training
Experienced siding companies also keep their employees up to date the with the latest training, certifications and techniques! Going to industry training sessions and continuously learning are important parts of any siding career.
An independent sider without any experience won’t have the industry knowledge to back them up.
Licences, insurance and warranties are all basic documentation required of established, professional siding companies. It gives you security, ensuring the job will be done right and any mistakes will be fixed as soon as possible.
An inexperienced sider may not even be licensed in your state, and may possible be operating illegally!
3. Practice Makes Perfect
You don’t want your siding to serve as training grounds for an inexperienced sider. It’s possible that, in their inexperience, they may damage your siding even more! Either that, or they may not finish the job, may use shoddy materials or not know the correct techniques to get things ‘just right.’
On the other hand, an experienced siding company will take care of everything, and knows just how to make your siding sound again.
4. Safety Measures
Safety first! You know that with all of the training, a professional sider will take every safety precaution, especially with their insurance watching. So they will be prepared for every eventuality, and take extra care to not harm themselves, your home or your family during their work. Can the same be said for an inexperienced sider?
5. They Can Explain What They Do
Experienced house siders are masters of their trade. They can tell you about the differences among types siding materials, and can explain every entry on the estimate they submit. They will walk you through the process, explaining how they will tackle each step. This proves you can fully trust their expertise.
