Why Should I Hire an Award-Winning Contractor for My Home Exterior Remodel?
While interior remodeling often requires an architect, designer, and builder working together, most exterior remodeling projects, like siding installation and roof replacement, only need a general contractor to oversee the construction work. Skilled contractors can also offer guidance on design, materials, and solutions to help the homeowner during the remodeling process.
However, not all general contractors offer the same quality of work. Finding a contractor that is licensed, insured, and backed by excellent reviews is critical.
For example, if a worker is injured while installing your roof, a trusted contractor should carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover the medical bills, so you don’t have to take responsibility for the accident. If your contractor isn’t insured, you might be held liable for thousands of dollars in medical bills.
Or, imagine you work with an unlicensed contractor, and they cannot secure the permits for your job. If the work fails to meet building codes, you’ll be responsible for the changes that need to be made—not your contractor.
When you collaborate with a reputable contractor, you can eliminate the risk of hiring an unreliable company and instead reap the benefits of working with an award-winning team.
10 Qualifications to Look for in a Contractor
Trustworthy contractors tend to have several qualifications that set them apart from other companies. Verify your contractor has or can supply these things before you hire them:
- License—Confirms your contractor meets state-mandated guidelines
- General liability insurance—Covers claims for injuries or property damage
- Workers’ compensation insurance—Protects employees in the event of a work-related injury or illness
- Years in business—Proves the contractor has had past success
- Favorable references—Demonstrates the company has a positive reputation and satisfied customers
- Experienced employees—Verifies the crew is skilled and well-trained
- Reasonable turnaround time—Ensures the company can complete a project promptly but won’t cut corners to finish on time
- Competitive pricing—Shows the company is honest but is valued higher than less-experienced contractors
- Open communication—Saves you from frustrating miscommunications during construction
- Detailed contract—Makes you and your contractor’s expectations clear for a hassle-free project
Benefits of Hiring a Trusted Contractor
Save Time and Money
Hiring a qualified builder will help you to save time and money right off the bat. Instead of spending hours comparing bids and sifting through reviews, you’ll be able to start your project right away. You’ll also lock in top-notch work at a competitive price, so you won’t have to pay for frustrating hidden fees during your project or costly repairs down the road.
Receive Professional Services
Working with a licensed, insured contractor minimizes problems that may occur during your project and eliminates the risks associated with hiring an unlicensed team.
Rely on Industry-Leading Warranties
Since many award-winning contractors have complete confidence in their services, they offer lengthy labor warranties in the rare case something goes wrong. Additionally, these contractors install reputable siding, roofing, and window brands that come with long-lasting product warranties, offering complete protection for your home.
Build a Lasting Relationship
When you work with a reliable contractor for your current home exterior project, you’ll have someone trustworthy to reach out to when you need repairs or have more remodeling projects to complete in the future.
