Vinyl Railing and Siding in Uniontown, Ohio

Jim came to us as a referral from his brother, who we had done previous work with.  He was looking for some new solutions for his siding and porch, so Ken was able to work with him to find something attractive and durable.

We did new Heartech vinyl siding on the back of his house in Willow.  This siding is made by ProVia, a local company that is highly reputable and makes a great product.

Here are a few pictures of the back of Jim’s home before:

And here is the back of Jim’ house afterwards.

How to Choose the Right Contractor

 

Choosing the right contractor can be intimidating, especially if you are not given a reference or know someone personally.  We’ve all heard stories of home projects gone bad, where the contractor didn’t follow through on their word.  In fact, we have many stories of our clients where we able to come in and rectify a bad situation due to the previous contractor.

Here are a few tips to help you pick the right contractor:

  1. Compare Apples to Apples

There is often a lack of consistency in estimates, that’s hard to identify, when comparing contractor to contractor.  Make sure that you request the same work from each contractor.  On the flip side, ask each contract to describe what they may do differently from their competitor.

  1. Callback Turnaround

Responsiveness is key.  If this contractor doesn’t call you back within 48 hours they may be unreliable.  You need someone who is available for you, and keeps you in the communication loop.

  1. What Will Your Project Look Like?

Ask them how a typical project is ran? How big is the crew, what time do they show up, how long will it take them?  This will give you a good idea of how smoothly your project will go.

  1. What Do They Do Best

Find out what each contractor specializes in.  Residential, commercial, kitchen renovations, new construction… There are many different facets to construction.  You can also ask to see pictures of their past projects.  If they say they’re a roofer, but don’t have a lot of roofing projects to show you, there may be a problem.

  1. Check Them Out

Here are a few places/things to check:

-If they are registered with your city, check to see if there are any complaints filed against them?

-Do they carry the appropriate insurance?

-Do they have any references to show you, or refer you to?

-How long have they been in business?

 

Each of these items can be applied to any area of contracting, and should be looked at across the board.  So having said all that, here’s a little more about us!

Do you have storm damage?

We have had a lot of storms move through Ohio lately, and you may be wondering… do I have storm damage? Kline is adept at helping customers identify when their home has been damaged, and walking homeowners through the insurance process. Here are some key signs your house may be damaged.

1. Hail Damage:  Look for dents or cracks on your windows, siding, screens, and doors.  If we come to inspect your home we will climb on your roof to identify hail strikes and bruises.

2.  Wind Damage:  Look for blown off shingles.  You may not be able to climb up to you roof, but there may also be some shingles creased by wind damage.

We use only the highest quality products available, and our shingles are rated for up to 130 mph.  Trust us to come out and inspect your home, walk you through the process, and repair everything so it’s more protected than ever.
