The Benefits of Hiring a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor
1. You’re ensured the installation team complies with the Hardie company’s best practices
You can rest at ease that your siding will be installed correctly when you hire a James Hardie Elite Preferred contractor. Nobody knows the intricacies of Hardie siding better than the manufacturer, and with the manufacturer doing the training on installation, you can be assured your siding will perform as it was designed to over the decades because it was engineered with precision and installed to perfection.
2. You are assured a professional sales approach
Nobody likes to feel pressured, and the Hardie company’s standard of excellence includes leaving the decision-making in the customer’s hands—without pressuring them. So take a sigh of relief knowing you can relax and decide without high-pressure sales.
3. You know the contractor has a satisfactory credit report
The Hardie company is known for its excellence, and they require those they associate with in their Alliance program also to display excellence. They require the contractors to maintain a satisfactory credit report consistently.
4. You can rest at ease that the siding contractor has current state licensure
When the state licenses siding contractors, they must meet specific criteria, ensuring you, the homeowner is hiring a reputable team of installers.
5. You’ll be covered with $1,000,000 of liability insurance per occurrence
If an uninsured siding contractor had a team member injured on your property, you would be responsible. That’s why it’s vital to hire a company with liability insurance.
6. You’ll know that the siding contractor has workman’s compensation insurance (where required by law)
If an uninsured siding contractor gets injured on your property, you may be responsible for paying workers’ compensation. Workman’s compensation ensures medical treatment for workers who injure themselves on your property.
7. You can be confident in the contractor’s results because a satisfactory background check with at least six past clients is one of Hardie’s requirements
In an effort to provide the highest level of service, customer satisfaction surveys are initiated on James Hardie siding replacement projects installed by Elite Preferred Contractors and Preferred Contractors using GuildQuality—a third-party customer satisfaction surveying service.
8. You gain peace of mind knowing your new siding is covered by a 30-year warranty
The 30-year non-prorated, transferable warranty coverage the Hardie company provides is honored when you have your siding installed by an Elite Preferred contractor or a Preferred contractor. If you decide to DIY with your Hardie siding installation, you won’t enjoy the outstanding warranty coverage that Hardie offers should you need it. If you DIY, your warranty will be voided.
9. You’ll know the contractor you hire has a good record with the BBB
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is a long-time favorite of most savvy homeowners who research the contractors they hire before signing on the dotted line. When you hire an Elite Preferred Contractor, you can rest at ease that they are in good standing with the reputable BBB with reviews to back their customer service and siding installation results.
