Before you hire a contractor to do any sort of work on your home, you should make sure that the company is licensed and insured. That’s particularly important when you’re planning a major project, such as siding installation.

Hiring a home improvement business that is not licensed and insured can put you and your house at risk. Working with a licensed and insured siding contractor can protect you if something goes wrong, either during the installation process or after the work is completed.

Reasons to Work with a Siding Company That’s Licensed

To get and maintain a license, a siding company must meet a stringent set of standards. Its workers must receive training related to their field and must pass examinations to demonstrate their knowledge and proficiency. If you hire a company that’s licensed, you can be confident that its workers know what they’re doing and will comply with local building codes.

A business that’s not licensed might quote you a substantially lower price than a licensed contractor. While you might be thrilled to receive a low estimate, that’s actually a red flag.

A company that quotes you a low price probably has workers who have not received adequate training and who have little experience. If you hire that business, workers might cut corners or make mistakes that can lead to moisture damage, drafts, and other problems in the future.

Why You Should Hire a Siding Company That’s Insured

Siding installation and other home improvement projects can be dangerous, and workers sometimes get hurt on the job. If you hire a business that’s insured, the company’s liability and/or worker’s compensation insurance will cover medical bills and other expenses if an employee gets hurt while working on your house. If the contractor isn’t insured, an injured worker can sue you.
