James Hardie siding is an excellent choice for your home’s exterior. However, you should hire the right company to install it. Asking these questions gives you the information you need to make a wise decision.
1. How Long Will the Hardie Board Installation Process Take?
While installing siding has a pretty standard timeframe independent of the installer, there are other factors involved that you should consider. Ask the installer how long it will take to get the new siding, prepare it for installation, remove your old siding, make repairs to your house as needed for the new siding and put the James Hardie siding on your home. An installer experienced in Hardie Board siding can give you a rough estimate for each step, which you can use to determine the ideal time in your schedule to start.
2. Are You Licensed to Install Hardie Board Siding?
Installation of siding requires specific experience to ensure a quality installation. Colorado calls for contractors to have a special license to install siding. If the price you are quoted seems too good to be true, the contractor may not be licensed. Avoid contractors without the license, as they are less likely to perform an accurate installation, which could result in the siding falling off in a few months.
3. Are You Insured to Install Hardie Board Siding?
Whenever you hire someone to perform a home improvement on your property, you want to find out who is facing possible liability in the case of an accident. Professional installers should carry insurance that protects them while on your property so that you do not have to pay for injuries they incur during the project or any accidental damage they make to your property.
4. Are You a James Hardie Preferred Installer?
Siding manufacturers often back up their products with a good warranty, but they do not want to pay for unqualified people making a faulty installation. James Hardie Preferred Installers are vetted by the manufacturer to provide you with a flawless installation. As a result, the manufacturer gives a warranty for work performed by preferred installers, just in case something goes wrong.
5. Does Your Company Have Positive Reviews?
Contractors are all different, and you want to know that the one you select has done great work for others. Ask for references and examples of Hardie Board installation the contractor has done on other homes in the area. Look online for reviews of the company, to make sure that the one you choose will keep your priorities in mind throughout the project.
