    The basic objective of exterior siding installation is to provide that much needed visual appeal and protection to the external surface of your home. Therefore, it is important that you make the right choices with regard to materials, colors, and even the contractors executing the job for you.

    Colors are particularly important because they can impact the way you act, think, and feel. It can also add substantial personality and value to your home.

    Initially, it could be somewhat overwhelming to choose the right colors for your home particularly because all colors tend to look good. But, in today’s digital world the task gets a lot easier since you can examine a wide range of color combinations right from the comfort of your home.

    For in-depth information of how colors impact your siding job, you can also refer to this James Hardie web page. Neutral color often helps in getting the right contrasts.

    Color Wheel

    The color wheel is very helpful in understanding the basic attributes of colors. The color wheel has 12 sections to help you appreciate different combinations that have been scientifically balanced to be pleasing for the eyes.

    Generally, analogous colors are chosen for the exteriors with a minimum combination of 3 colors to limit the contrast and create a serene and calm color scheme.

    On the color wheel, you will also find complimentary colors placed on the opposite side. Generally, two complementary colors are provided like green and red.

    Together, the complementary colors produce the best contrast, particularly when you are using it in their most vibrant and purest form. It is important to use the colors in the right proportion with one color of your choice taking the lead role and the other colors taking a supporting role.

    Choosing Your Siding Contractor

    Once you have decided on the siding job you have on hand, the next step is hiring the right contractor for the job. The following tips will help you find the perfect contractor for your job.

    Contractors assume serious responsibilities from the broad scope of your project to potentially impending liabilities. Therefore, you should consider various aspects listed below while choosing your contractor.

    House Siding Insurance

    If your siding contractor does not have adequate and appropriate insurance, you could be inviting financial and physical problems. There are attendant risks while executing a siding job and without insurance, you as the homeowner can be responsible for any potential issues that may come up.

    Property damage insurance, liability insurance, and worker’s compensation insurance are among the major insurance covers that your contractor must-have.

    Physically check and ensure that the insurance cover is valid and adequate.

    Licensing of your Siding Contractor

    Licensing regulations apply in every city and your contractor should provide proof that he is a licensed contractor and that the license is valid.

    If the contractor is not licensed, you may face problems in getting proper permits to get the job done and may invite legal problems.

    Licensing also establishes that the contractor has proven competence in the job and has passed the stipulated examinations.

    Work History and Reviews

    Work history and reviews help in understanding the past works executed by the siding company. You can also speak to past customers to learn about the competence and overall conduct of the contractor before entrusting your work to him.

    Finding a contractor who has expertise in the type of siding job that you are seeking to get done is the way to go.

    Siding Project Cost

    Your project cost will include labor charges, material costs, the contractor’s margin, and other incidentals. He should be able to provide a fair estimate of these costs and stay closer to your overall financial liability for the job.

    Ideally, you should get all the details of costs written and signed by the contractor including who pays for any surprise expenses.

    You should also get multiple quotes and compare them carefully item by item. Ideally, while a competitive price is important to you, you should also know that very low pricing can potentially translate to a poor job.

    Payment Plan

    Your siding contractor should provide a payment plan linked to different stages of execution.

    You should never agree to pay 100% of the project cost upfront. Staggered payments ensure that you are always on the safe side of things. A decent upfront advance of about 30% may be essential for the contractor to organize men and materials for your job. But, the balance payment should follow an agreed-upon plan, including the final payment.

    Warranties for Workmanship and Siding Materials

    Finally, you should also ensure that all warranties for siding material as well as workmanship provided are in place including for input materials like starter strips and corner posts.

    Rarely though, some products can turn defective post-installation and warranties will help in protecting your investment. Having siding expert and experienced professionals installing your siding will ensure that your warranties remain intact.

    Read Your Contract Thoroughly

    Before signing on the dotted lines, you should ensure that every word in the contract is read and understood.

    Your contract should be signed by both parties before the commencement of the work and have a start date and project completion date.
