Home improvement often means hiring a contractor. It is important to choose the right individual or company to complete the work. The right siding contractor, for example, will provide quality work at a fair price.


Brain Storm

The first step homeowners should take is to create a detailed assessment of the siding work they would like to have done and their expectations for this work. Does siding on one wall of the house need replacing, or does the entire house need new siding?

Get Bids

Bids should be sought from several reputable companies to gain perspective on the cost of the project. Homeowners should be wary of choosing the lowest bid offered on a home improvement project. A lowball bid may indicate that the siding contractor is underestimating the amount of work that needs to be done or that may be using inferior siding materials. Conversely, a very expensive siding bid doesn't always equal quality.


Vet the Contractor

Ask for references to find out how satisfied the siding contractor's previous customers have been with their siding projects. Finally, it's important to vet the company and request to see proof of insurance. Workers' compensation is required by law in most areas, but general liability insurance is recommended to cover any accidental damage during the build project.

Choosing the right siding contractor to work with will help ensure that the job is done right and at a fair price. Good communication between yourself and the siding contractor will ensure that you end up with a job well done. As a leading siding contractor in CT and MA, Tim Wells of Wells Custom Framers has the experience needed to build a beautiful exterior for your home or business.
