It’s not unusual for homeowners to second-guess their choices after hiring a contractor. The following are the signs that you have hired the right contractor for the job.
They Have a Good Local Reputation
A reputable contractor would have a reputation with the local community, ideally for providing good service, quality installation and providing a good experience to their clients. Your local contractors should be knowledgeable about local building codes. They should also offer roofing, siding and other products for the home exterior that are designed for the local climate. Most importantly, you should be able to count on them for emergency repairs.
You Can Easily Communicate With Them
If your contractors were easy to communicate with during your initial consultations, they’re more likely to be the same throughout your project. Proper communication with your siding or roofing contractor is essential for keeping you up to date with your project’s status, especially if you can’t be onsite at all times. Communication is also essential for urgent matters, such when you need to sign off on unforeseen repairs.
Their Contract Is Easy to Read
A good contract should be upfront with the terms – clearly worded and without excessive use of jargon, but not oversimplified to the point that it omits key details. It should have a detailed list of materials and their associated costs as well as a definitive description of the scope of work.
Ask yourself the following questions: was the company able to satisfactorily answer your questions and make changes and corrections when needed? Did they explain the terms in a polite manner? Did they give you time to review your contract and without making you feel pressured to sign? If you answered yes to all of the above, you’ve likely signed up with a good contractor.
