There are hundreds of DIY—Do It Yourself—jobs around a house that can be completed by a competent handyman, and even a few for the less-than-competent. Other jobs should only be handled by a professional, like the installation of vinyl siding.
Family-owned Century Roofing Limited have been professional residential, commercial roofing and exterior/siding contractors in the Calgary community since 1981. Century Roofing Limited offers residential and commercial customers professional siding installations of all types of siding and exterior products—that matches the appearance of your home—in a variety of materials, including aluminum, composite, steel, vinyl, and wood.
Choosing a roofing contractor involves much more than just comparing prices. Whether you’re re-siding your home or building a new one, improper installation is the primary cause of poor product performance and dissatisfaction with your vinyl siding. Choosing a bad contractor who takes shortcuts or improperly installs the siding can even void manufacturer warranties.
That’s why many consumer groups and installation professionals like the technicians at Century Roofing Limited suggest that you evaluate a contractor as carefully as you would a doctor or lawyer.
Ask your reference these five questions to initially narrow the field:
- Would you hire this contractor again?
- Were you satisfied with the quality of the work?
- Was the contractor easy to talk to? Was he responsive when asked for information or changes?
- Was the job completed on time and at the bid price?
- Would you recommend this contractor to a family member?
Here are some other pointers for spotting and avoiding working with questionable contractors:
- The promise of a hefty discount if purchased “today.”
- Contractors that use scare tactics, telling you that your home poses a hazard.
- Contractors with bargain prices, because they have leftover materials from a nearby job.
Improper installation can often result in long-lasting, costly consequences beyond a voided warranty. Improper installation of vinyl siding can cause it to buckle and “oilcan” if fasteners are overdriven, potentially allowing moisture into the walls of your home.
