#1. Find out about the contractors’ work experience, especially with vinyl siding trim. The trim around windows, doors, and overhangs, etc. will make all the difference –trim work is labor intensive, and more critical to the overall appearance of your home. You also need to determine if the contractors are familiar with your roof type.
#2. If you have issues with rot, etc., make sure that contractors discuss it with you. If other unexpected issues arise during the inspection, this should be communicated immediately, and the contractors should state how the problem will be addressed.
#3 It is important that contractors incorporate the removal of the old siding. Not only should it be included in the bid, but they should also tell you their process, and have a plan for dispensing with it. In fact, they should also tell you where they plan to store the materials and trash during the job.
#4 . Inquire about the application of the moisture barrier, the siding, flashing, the nail penetration, and so on. What kind of caulking will they use? If appropriate, depending on the siding type you’ve decided on, ask about the paint and finish as well. Lastly, be sure to ask about the application of the all-important trim.
#5 When installing your vinyl siding, negotiate 3 to 5 years for your workmanship warrantee. At least try to make sure your contract guarantee is for 1 year, which will give you time to find any problems about the siding that may show up.
