One of the biggest choices you will have when planning your siding or roofing remodel is which contractor to hire. Each contractor has a special set of skills, as well as a certain way they do business. Here are some recommendations for choosing a siding replacement contractor in your area.
Hire a Local Siding Contractor
Local contractors have the most at stake when it comes to protecting their credibility so they work hard to make sure each client is fully satisfied with the product and workmanship. They also know the local market better than big nationwide chains and can help find the right look and style of siding and roofing products for your MN neighborhood. Local contractors have fewer miles to travel and therefore are more flexible to fit you in for a siding installation estimate and can get the job done quicker.
Check Siding Installation Reviews
Online profiles are a big deal these days, even for siding contractors. Reviews from customers are a huge factor in whether or not someone chooses to go with a siding installer. Customers are often brutally honest about their experiences, for better or for worse. This gives you the opportunity to see what kind of experiences other people have had with this company. Rather than choosing blindly, research local MN siding contractors, and choose one that has excellent reviews. This gives you peace of mind in knowing they have a track record of happy customers.

Ask about Types of Siding
If you choose or purchase siding before talking with a contractor, make sure the team you hire has experience with the materials you have chosen. Cement board fiber and a few other types of siding require special equipment and techniques for installation. Be sure your team has the equipment and experience needed for a high-quality installation. Steel siding installation procedures are also different than a vinyl or wood siding, so be sure to ask about the contractor’s experience and training.
Contracts or Agreements
Also, make sure your new siding contractor gives you some sort of written agreement for the work that will be done. Don’t just expect specific things to be done if they aren’t written down. Double-check the details to make sure everything you discuss with the contractor is on paper, including pricing, material information, etc. This helps ensure the installers know exactly what is getting done per your agreement, and it gives you comfort in knowing that it is in the contract.
