sidingWhen you decide to buy siding for your Maple Grove area home, there are many factors to take into consideration. The choice of material, the color and the style are all very important decisions that affect both your home’s curb appeal and resale value. Weather is certainly a factor, so you need a product that can withstand Upper Midwest winters and hot, humid summers. Your most important decision, however, is choosing the right siding contractor for the job.

What are the qualities you should look for in a siding contractor?Emco_siding

  • Certification – You need a professional company that is licensed, bonded and insured. Your contractor should be knowledgeable about the products best suited for your home and be certified to install the siding with a commitment to stand behind the work. All work performed should come with a written warranty.
  • Dependability – References and testimonials should assure you that your contractor consistently delivers superior workmanship, completes projects on time and covers all the details, from setup to cleanup.
  • Community awareness – Whether recycling materials to improve the environment or helping homeowners through damage repairs, the ideal contractor should be aware of customer needs in the community. They should handle all necessary permits and approvals and communicate with local authorities on any area regulations or restrictions.
  • Value – Your contractor should provide fair pricing with quality service. The competitive quote you receive should outline all aspects of the project, detailed costs, and expectations for payment.craneboard_7_siding

Look for these qualities as you interview and secure bids from local providers. Educate yourself on siding choices and potential contractors by checking out siding styles and durability in your neighborhood. Visit local showrooms to compare samples. Talk with friends and neighbors who have had siding installed. By being informed, you can ask the right questions and feel confident that the siding contractor you choose will deliver the look you want with the quality service you expect.
