When it’s time to replace the siding on your Indianapolis home, we know you want to be confident that your new investment is durable and long-lasting.
Although the material you choose will contribute to your siding installation’s success, the most critical decision you’ll make is the contractor you hire to complete your project.
Your contractor has a direct impact on the quality and long-term performance of your new siding. So why not hire a reliable, professional contractor who you can trust to do the job right?
Here’s why you can have peace of mind about your new siding installation when you work with a James Hardie Elite Preferred Siding Contractor!
What Is a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor?
James Hardie is committed to offering homeowners reliable, high-quality installation of their fiber cement siding products.
To match homeowners with professional contractors around the country trained to install James Hardie siding, the company created a Contractor Alliance Program.
For a contractor to be accepted into the Contractor Alliance Program, James Hardie considers the following criteria:
- Compliance with installation best practices
- Professional sales approach
- Satisfactory credit report
- State licenses
- Liability insurance $1,000,000 per occurrence
- Workman’s compensation insurance
- Satisfactory background check with at least six past clients
In addition to these qualifications, a third-party service assesses the contractor after each Hardie siding installation to receive input from their customers.
Only contractors who consistently follow the high standards of installation, customer service, and reliability set by the James Hardie company are given the distinct honor of being a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor.
When you work with a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor, you’ll enjoy these four fantastic benefits.
1. Correct Siding Installation
You might be tempted to DIY your fiber cement siding project to avoid steep installation costs.
However, here are some factors that may cause you to reconsider:
Lack of Experience
Fiber cement siding is heavy, cumbersome, and requires more skill and manpower to install than vinyl siding.
Fiber cement siding requires specialized tools that you might not have on hand, and using the incorrect tools can significantly damage your new siding.
Fiber cement siding installation requires special safety equipment, like a dust collector, mask, and safety goggles that you might not have access to.
On top of a full-time job, siding installation can take months to complete, causing you to live in a construction zone for an extended time.
Benefits of Hiring a Professional Contractor
When you hire a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor, you can rest assured that your siding will be installed safely, correctly, and promptly.
These contractors have completed James Hardie’s annual training program about general installation requirements, quality requirements, and a review of current best practices.
2. Homeowner Approved
One of the first tips for hiring a reliable siding contractor is to ask neighbors, friends, family, and co-workers for recommendations. You’ll also want to request references from recent projects your contractor has completed within the last year before signing a remodeling contract.
When you work with a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor, you can trust that homeowners who have worked with your contractor have been delighted with their siding installation.
All James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractors must have a Homeowner “Likely to Recommend” score of at least 90% with GuildQuality, a third-party customer satisfaction surveying service.
3. Unbeatable Warranty
When you hire an unqualified siding contractor or complete your own siding installation, you risk voiding or invalidating your siding’s warranty.
When you choose a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to enjoy the full benefits of your 30-year, non-prorated James Hardie warranty.
4. Perfect Color and Style Selection
With so many styles, colors, and design options for your siding replacement, it can feel daunting to choose the right look for your home.
Thankfully, you don’t have to make this decision alone. James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractors are experts at helping you choose the perfect shades and styles for your siding based on their experience, your preferences, and current design trends.
