Exterior upgrades will improve your home’s protection, appeal and overall value. However, major projects, such as a siding replacement, can involve significant costs.
Here are ways to negotiate costs with your siding contractor.
Siding Material Recommendations
It’s fine to let your contractors do the research when it comes to the best siding material for your home. They have expertise in the field as well as local knowledge on materials that will increase your home’s curb appeal and resale value.
The size of your house is a critical factor for both siding and roof replacement. Its size, number of stories and terrain will affect the project’s timeline. Your contractor should discuss these components with you before giving you your final quote.
Be prepared to ask questions about different materials during the negotiation. You can even ask about material costs. Whatever material you choose for your siding, you need to understand how it will affect your home today and in the future.
Know if the Warranty Is Part of the Price
You can always negotiate the final price of your project before signing a contract. Any unexpected expenses should be in writing to help you stay on budget.
Warranties will also contribute to your project cost. Installers usually offer manufacturer’s warranties to protect you from material defects. Some offer guarantees for installation and coverage for potential damage to your home. Check what the warranty does and doesn’t cover. Keep in mind, however, that a lower price means a shorter length warranty and a higher price is longer.
