Winter may still have a grip on us at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t start planning our spring clean and renovation projects. While some people may be thinking of sprucing things up a bit, a lot of homeowners are looking to invest in bigger improvements. One major project that is popular at the moment in Vancouver is replacing the siding on a property to make it look like-new. If that’s what you’re planning, then it is a good idea to find the best contractor you can.
TIP #1. CHOOSE A LICENSED CONTRACTOR
While it may be tempting to hire a friend-of-a-friend, you could end up paying more in the long run. A licensed siding contractor will be able to do a much better job and has shown that they are well versed in best practices. Why risk problems down the line in the hope of saving a few dollars.
TIP #2. GET A FIXED QUOTE
If you don’t work in construction yourself then you probably have no concept of what the job will cost. It’s hard to research online when you don’t know what to look for. The best way to ensure that you get a fair price is to get several quotes from different companies. Ask for fixed price quotes so that you can make a fair comparison. There may be contingency options for if the contractor runs into issues, but make sure that they are clearly explained.
TIP #3. CHOOSE A LOCAL CONTRACTOR
Hire a local contractor, ideally a small business with a longstanding reputation. These companies want to make sure that they do a good job because their body of work is what makes them stand out locally. By choosing a siding contractor that is local to Vancouver you are more likely to get personal and high-quality work, where a bigger company may not put quite as much of an emphasis on to polish or onto providing you with good customer service. Yes, there are exceptions to this but taking the philosophy of supporting local companies whenever you can is a good idea if you want to get good rates and good work, and you are likely to be able to get references from other local customers with ease too.
