We Pay for What We Get in the Contracting World

Quality Where It Counts, Behind the Siding ©Valliant Exteriors Ltd.

We get what we pay for in almost all situations. We say ‘almost’ because there must be an exception. There always are, although we cannot put our finger on it at the moment. If we eat at a roadside diner, we should not expect haute cuisine at that price. Pretty much the same goes for motorcars and houses too.

 

Choosing a Contractor Based on Lowest Cost

 

It is a trite saying but true. Our homes are the most expensive investments for the majority of Calgary residents. Our children are the most precious possessions, and we lavish everything we have on them. It makes sense to care for what we value.

Not all fibre-cement or vinyl siding projects are the same. They may look similar in a decorative sense. However, the insulated panels behind them are what keep the warmth in, and the cold out. The method of attachment is equally important. It’s what you do not see that matters most in the building contracting industry. Protect your insurance cover by choosing wisely.

 

Problems You May Encounter When Buying Down

 

Siding and eavestrough contractors pay similar prices for materials and equipment. Hence, the only real way to cut down costs is on labour, and the time they spend on the job. Cheaper contractors may hire inexperienced assistance, and not spend the time needed to do the work properly.

These factors come together when they start running out of money, and receiving low-quality complaints about their work failing. In our experience, this is the moment when they close their businesses, and may even move towns. We make good money out of recovering botched jobs. We would rather not though, because we like to see a job through from the beginning to the end.

 

The Damage This Is Doing to the Building Industry

 

The current economic downturn has left many Calgary residents reeling as they try to manage costs. Cheap contractors taking advantage of this have put a number of professional firms out of business.  Valiant Exteriors has trimmed prices as much as we can without sacrificing quality. We see ourselves as being in a partnership with our customers where we trust each other.

Our phone number is 403 829 1661 and you are welcome to send us an email anytime. We would love to assist you with your siding, soffit and eavestrough requirements.
