Finding A Contractor For Your Project

Any qualified contractor that can install siding materials can install LP products on your home or storage shed. If you’re planning an interior moulding project, a qualified woodworker can help you complete your project!

It’s easy to find a great contractor if you know what to look for! Consider the following points when determining if a contractor is best for you:

  • Licensed, Bonded, And Insured – Ask your contractor if their license requirements are up to date.
  • Price – Get several bids for the same exact project specifications. The lowest price is not always the best.
  • Reputation – Research your contractor’s history with friends, online consumer referral sites and your local Better Business Bureau (BBB).
  • Safety – Verify that the contractor is willing to enforce a safety policy for his/her crew(s) that ensures each person wears proper safety equipment that includes at a minimum safety toe shoes, eye protection, and hard hat.
  • Installation Instructions – Verify that the contractor will maintain a copy of the installation instructions on the job and ensure that the crew(s) understand all aspects of proper installation.
  • Itemized Proposal – Ask for a detailed proposal outlining the entire cost of materials and labor to complete your project.
  • Get A Contract – make sure your contractor provides a thorough contract outlining the scope of work, timelines, charges, cancellation policies and warranties.
  • Work Ethic – Determine if your contractor uses employees or subcontractors and note his expectations of their workmanship. Make sure the contractor and crew are dressed appropriately and maintain a clean, safe work environment.
  • Communication – Ask if there will be a supervisor or manager on the site and if you will have a consistent point of contact if any issues arise. A good contractor will pay close attention to your needs and oversee every detail of the project.
  • Craftsmanship – Take note if a contractor recognizes the unique details of your home and how they may affect your individual project.
  • Local Experience – Ask if your contractor has completed jobs similar to yours and ask for customer references.
  • Business Location – Make sure your contractor has a legitimate address near your community. Avoid out-of-state contractors that may be hard to reach if you have a problem.
  • Professional References – Ask for professional references from suppliers, architects and other peers that show they are a trusted member in the contractor community.
