Whether you’re planning a siding installation or having an existing one repaired, you have the option to go with a nationally-recognized franchise or a smaller, local contractor. This blog post highlights the reasons why the latter makes more sense.
Local Weather Conditions
Local contractors understand the local climate and environment, which allows them to determine which materials are best suited to the temperature, humidity and precipitation patterns. This information won’t be available to any contractor based outside of your location.
Knowledge of Material Needs
Local siding contractors are knowledgeable about the latest trends, technologies and materials used in siding installation. They understand the differences between siding materials, such as wood and James Hardie® fiber cement, and can advise on which one fares better for your home based on your maintenance requirements and your home’s architectural style and aesthetics.
Siding contractors are up-to-date on the latest building codes and safety regulations in your area, helping to ensure that any work performed is compliant and safe. This includes ensuring that the siding material being installed meets the area’s fire safety requirements and that all electrical connections are properly grounded.
Professionals have the tools, skills and training to install quality siding that will last for years. With their expertise, you can be sure that your new siding will be installed safely and correctly, protecting your home and adding to the curb appeal of your property.
Proximity to Your Location
In situations that may involve storm damage and insurance claims, it’s important to have a contractor near your location who can quickly respond to your needs. With their proximity, they can reach your doorstep a few minutes after calling them. This helps minimize potential delays, ensuring an effective resolution to any problems you may have with your siding.
