What is a siding contractor?


A siding contractor is commonly a small businessman who offers homeowners the supply and installation of various types of siding that is available for homes and other buildings. New siding is often installed as an effective way to spruce up a property, siding itself consists of horizontal slats of various material that are professionally installed on the exterior walls of a building. The siding gets put together in such a way that it provides a weatherproof cocoon, repelling moisture, snow, sleet and anything else that comes its way.

Many siding contractors are independent businessmen, they work directly with the property owner, reviewing the needs, offering various solutions, providing the homeowner with a formal proposal which includes detailed information on the material to be used, the price and the completion time. If, upon presentation, the customer agrees the two parties enter into a formal contract and both are bound by the terms of the contract.

There is a considerable amount of specialist knowledge that is required to be a siding contractor. Many of the popular siding materials are vinyl, wood and aluminum. All of these materials have unique installation methods and the contractor and his installation crew must be intimate with them.

Really good siding contractors will help the homeowner make the right choice of material. Although there are different materials available, not every material is suitable for every application or location. In some cases wood siding may be prone to rapid decay unless there is a great deal of preventative maintenance done, in other cases vinyl siding may not be the best choice in those parts of the country that take a pounding from hail. Each material has its benefits and disadvantages and the best contractor will point them out to you, making sure that your investment in siding gives excellent returns.

The best siding contractors have the skills that are needed to install the different types of siding.  An excellent siding job demands that the joints are perfect and that the individual components overlap perfectly to provide excellence in protection as well as visual appreciation. Look for a siding contractor that has experience, is well respected in the community, has many happy past customers, is honest and has integrity.
