Replacing your home’s siding with a durable fiber cement option like James Hardie siding is one of the best-value projects you can do. In fact, on average you can expect to get nearly a 70% return on investment. Before you get started, however, you need to make sure you choose the right James Hardie installer for the job. One way to do that is to know the right questions to ask before making your decision.
In this guide, we’ll walk you through the most important questions to ask so you can feel confident that you’re making the right decision for your home. Let’s get to it!
ARE YOU LICENSED AND INSURED TO SELL HARDIE BOARD SIDING?
First things first, you want to make sure that you only hire a licensed and insured contractor. By doing so, you’ll have peace of mind that your team of installers has been certified and trained in how to correctly install James Hardie products. This helps ensure that your project will be done the right way from the beginning, so you don’t have to worry about issues down the road.
Professional James Hardie installers should also have liability insurance so that if an accident should happen on your property, you’re not held responsible as the homeowner. Here at Bak Brothers, our team is properly licensed and insured, so your home is in good hands every step of the way.
HOW LONG WILL THE INSTALLATION PROCESS TAKE?
When you’re planning a major home improvement project like a new siding installation, it helps to know what to expect in terms of timeframe so you can fit it into your busy schedule. A legitimate James Hardie installer will be able to give you a rough estimate for how long each step of the process should take from ordering the new siding and removing the old material, to completing the project, and everything in between.
You can then use this information to help you decide when it makes the most sense for you to schedule your project.
ARE YOU AN ELITE PREFERRED JAMES HARDIE INSTALLER?
Did you know that James Hardie names certain installers as Elite Preferred Contractors? This special designation is only given to contractors that have taken the time to achieve the certification through rigorous training.
When you hire a James Hardie Elite Preferred Installer, it means that you’re choosing a company that’s been vetted and that works to meet the ongoing standards expected of James Hardie.
Here at Bak Brothers, we’re proud to be an Elite Preferred James Hardie Installer. We are committed to providing high-quality craftsmanship and customer service in everything that we do.
WHAT DO YOUR PAST CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY?
It’s also important to ask potential siding installation vendors if they have references from previous customers. Trusted James Hardie installers care about forming good customer relationships and are happy to share references and examples of past work.
You can also do some further research on your own to read through reviews on a customer’s website, Google listing, or social media pages to see unbiased feedback from homeowners they’ve worked within the past. This will give you a good idea of what you can expect if you hire them for your project.
