Homeowners who are looking into having their siding replaced have the option to choose between local and large national siding contractors. In this blog, local residential roofing and siding company Universal Roofing & Exteriors shares a look at the advantages that only local siding contractors can offer.
Major national companies have customers from all over the country, sometimes even from other countries, which means their customer service lines are centralized. If you have had to endure being placed on hold when calling your credit card or internet service provider’s customer service line, you already know the feeling. Getting a different person every time you call somehow increases the feeling that you’re not being cared for.
Local roof and siding contractors, on the other hand, will likely be someone you already know, perhaps have even installed siding for your friends and family. Local contractors typically have deep roots in the community and owned by the same family for generations. Local contractors will devote the time and attention that your home deserves, and will make sure that you’re satisfied with the results.
A contractor within the vicinity offers more than convenience. They can quickly respond to siding-related emergencies, such as storm damage. A timely response is essential when you need to file a storm damage insurance claim. Another benefit of having a siding contractor that’s within the area is they’re more knowledgeable with local building codes, and can be consulted when you’re planning a remodeling project.
Siding Designed for the Local Climate
James Hardie® and other national siding manufacturers are producing siding that’s designed for specific climates or regions. Instead of selling them through retail channels, they’re made available through certified siding contractors. This helps make sure that homeowners are getting siding that’s made for the local climate. As a James Hardie Preferred Remodeler, we offer not just great fiber cement siding products to the local community, our siding installations are also eligible for warranty coverage that includes both materials and installation.
