No, it’s not the forgotten borough.
How many times do you hear Staten Island mentioned in association with the boroughs that comprise the City of New York? Not too often. Everyone immediately thinks of Manhattan, then maybe Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. It just seems sometimes that Staten Island gets no respect (apologies to the late Rodney Dangerfield).
Staten Island is unique in many ways. Within visual distance of Manhattan, this unique place has its distinctive charms. There are many different types of homes, and the owners have the same concerns and considerations that other homeowners do across the New York Metropolitan Area and New Jersey.
Maintaining Staten Island with Windows and Siding
It’s a fact. Replacement windows and siding in Staten Island, as elsewhere, are among the simplest yet long term cost effective ways to beautify, enhance and protect a home.
You might also be considering the purchase of a Staten Island home. There are many things to consider, however, if you want to eventually sell your home. Prospective buyers get caught up in wanting to know if replacement windows have been installed, how old the roof is, and many other questions about the home’s exterior.
Making the Right Staten Island Choices
Reputable replacement window and siding dealers are not always in your immediate proximity. It is worthwhile to find out about the longevity of the dealer, their reputation, recommendations and their track record of successful replacement window and vinyl siding installations in Staten Island.
You probably see it in your own Staten Island neighborhood everyday: low end vinyl siding that even the best installers cant make look good. Perhaps the homes around yours have rotted, moldy siding, bringing down the look and property values of the entire neighborhood. In the back of your mind, you know it means one thing: homeowners who have gotten ripped off by bad siding companies. Of course, you are looking to replace your own siding or add siding to your home. What should you do? Who can you trust?
Never Hire a Siding Contractor Who Just Happens to Be in the Neighborhood
You wouldn’t purchase a new car or a health insurance policy from someone who stopped by your house unannounced, so why should your investment in replacement windows or siding a siding be any different? While some siding contractors who drop by your home and offer their services may be legitimate, many are not. They may try to retain a large deposit from you and then, presto, you never see them again. Or they may attempt to pressure you into signing an agreement before you have carefully read it.
Before hiring any siding contractor, know who you are dealing with and investigate the contractors firm carefully.
Again, you should research siding companies and their track records.
