With today’s improvements in transportation and logistics, local siding contractors are competing with large national contractors in getting homeowners to sign up with them. As one such local roofing and siding contractor, Mobley Brothers Roofing & Restoration shares the reasons why you should choose locals for your siding project.
Ever notice how the only way you can reach large corporations—whether it’s your internet service provider or credit card provider—is through a toll-free number? You’re less likely to get the same person twice on the phone. The same is true with national contractors. Once you’ve booked your siding installation, you probably won’t know beforehand whether they’ll be sending installers hired by the company or subcontractors.
Local roofing and siding contractors, on the other hand, operate in typically small teams. They’re the same people who will answer your questions over the phone, who will help you plan your project and see it to completion. With a smaller, more localized customer base, us locals can focus on individual projects and give your home the attention it deserves.
People don’t realize the importance of having a siding contractor that is within driving distance, until they need urgent repairs, especially if it involves a storm. Imagine the frustration of navigating through phone menus just to get someone to help you with your storm-damaged siding. Local contractors are more likely to come in sooner, are familiar with local building codes and insurance claim requirements, and likely have experience working with your insurance provider.
If you prefer a particular brand or style of siding, you don’t have to go to national contractors. Leading siding manufacturers have long been providing certifications to local contractors across the country. They provide product-specific training to ensure correct and compliant installation, which would then make your home eligible for limited warranties. Plus, local contractors often offer their own workmanship guarantees on top of what the manufacturer offers. You’re investing in your siding for the long run; you should entrust your siding installation to contractors who will take care of your investment.
