As siding professionals, we see a lot of different siding jobs.
We see old, damaged siding that needs to be replaced or repaired. We see poorly installed siding that hasn’t done its job and looks sloppy or unprofessional. We also see siding that was once new and stylish but has gone out of style with time.
There are several reasons why it pays to hire a professional siding contractor rather than doing the job yourself. In this post, we’re going to look at the most important ways that hiring a contractor can benefit you in the long and short term!
Professionally Installed Siding Looks Better
One of the reasons why professional siding looks better is that as contractors, we have access to the latest siding designs and colors. Contractors know what’s current and what’s classic, so clients can make informed decisions about what they are looking for.
Plus, when a professional contractor installs siding at a property, they make sure that every step is properly completed. No shortcuts, no mistakes. A professional siding contractor ensures that the siding looks beautiful with the building’s existing or new guttering, soffit and trim.
Whether you are looking for vinyl, James Hardie or stucco, professionally installed siding is going to look better because great contractors know what they are doing. Instead of dealing with a learning curve or rookie mistakes, contractors are professionals because they have the necessary experience to get the job done and ensure that it looks stunning.
Professionally Installed Siding Lasts Longer
Because professional contractors don’t cut corners, our siding looks better for longer.
Approaching siding as a DIY project can seem like a good idea if you think it is going to save you a bunch of money, but what happens when your installation errors cause problems down the line and you end up having to get significant portions—or worse, the whole job—replaced?
Even some of the advice sites that help people tackle DIY projects show that when you break down the process of installing siding to its basic steps, there is a lot of complicated work to be done. It is unfortunately way too easy to make mistakes or find yourself without the right tools and equipment. Frustration and eagerness to get a difficult job over and done with can lead to missed steps and future problems with the installation.
Professional Contractors Can Solve Problems as They Arise, Which Saves You Money
Almost all homeowners have had the shared experience of expecting things to go one way and then suddenly having everything go sideways.
This happens with siding projects too, of course. When redoing siding on your own, you may discover problems with your foundation, walls, roof, soffit, trim and more. Working with a professional contractor gives you peace of mind that the people installing your new siding also will spot problems and know how to solve them or who to contact to get the problems taken care of.
This peace of mind can be incredibly important, especially if you have an older home or have encountered hiccups in the home improvement process already.
Contractors who easily can make small repairs or correct big problems ultimately can save you money because you’re not going to have to stop the job, contact new contractors and identify the problem, all while your house is unprotected mid-job.
