New siding is a great way for homeowners to make their home’s exterior look great. But be careful! Don’t get blind-sided by not doing your homework and checking with your BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU.
When it comes to new siding, what it looks like is not as important as the quality of materials and how it was installed. Water damage, mold, poor energy performance and premature failure are all possible pitfalls that may not appear until years later.
Make sure to ask your contractor about color retention, weather-ability, wind load, impact resistance, expansion, thickness and warranties. And always check out prospective contractors with the BBB absolutely free.
