3 Red Flags to Watch Out for When Hiring a Siding Contractor

It’s crucial to find siding contractors that you can trust. That’s why you should be thorough in checking their qualifications and ensuring they’re the right match for you.

So, it’s important to understand the red flags that you should watch out for when hiring a siding contractor.

No Portfolio and Proof of Insurance

Reliable contractors will readily provide you with some photos of previous jobs. They will also be able to share with you reviews and testimonials from their past clients. These can surely give you an idea of what you can expect from the company in terms of workmanship and professionalism.

You should also look for a proof of their insurance. Make sure you have a good understanding of the coverage of their policies so that you can protect yourself.

Aggressive Sales Pitch

If the contractor seems to be pressuring you into making a decision right then and there, consider this a red flag. In general, customers like you should feel relaxed and comfortable during consultations. Whether you’re hiring a contractor for residential roofing or siding jobs, you shouldn’t fall for aggressive tactics.

Asks for a Large Upfront Payment

You should be wary of businesses that ask for too much money upfront or those that accept cash payments only. An established company doesn’t need money upfront to start the job, but they might need a down payment for materials. If they insist on a huge upfront payment, there might be something wrong with how they run their business. Meanwhile, cash-only payments are often an indication that the contractor is hiding something and doesn’t want to leave a paper trail.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
