It’s not unusual for contractors to offer their services to homeowners several cities away. Some even serve from across state lines. However, working with a local contractor has certain advantages. In today’s post, local siding and replacement windows contractor JLR Home Renovation shares the reasons why you should work with a local siding contractor.
Siding companies that venture beyond their locale can do so because they have a big network of representatives and contractors. Such large operations require a centralized service center, which usually means customer service quality can be hit and miss. If you’ve ever had to spend time trying to get in touch with your credit card or internet service provider, you rarely get a person on the phone right away. When you do, that is probably the only time you’ll speak to the same person.
A local siding contractor may have a smaller coverage, but you can count on them to provide consistent and personalized service. The same team will take care of your project from planning to installation. Locals are also much easier to work with when you need help with repairs or warranty claims.
A siding contractor that’s within driving distance offers the greatest advantage in the event of siding emergencies, as is often the case after a storm hits the area. A timely response is essential when you need to file an insurance claim, as insurance providers count repair cost estimates as part of their insurance claim documentation requirements. The sooner this is provided, the sooner your claim will be processed.
Siding Made for the Local Climate
Certified local siding contractors are supplied with siding designed for use under local climatic conditions. Siding contractors from out-of-state tend to overlook this, which is why sometimes homeowners would end up with siding that easily cracks during the winter season, or lose their shape during the summer season. On the other hand, a local contractor will make sure that the siding they use is optimized for local conditions, providing years of problem-free exteriors.
