Let’s go over the key indicators that should tell you whether you’re working with a reliable Minnesota siding contractor. This is critically important because siding replacement isn’t cheap, which means you can’t afford to do business with dubious contractors. We recommend investigating certain credentials, qualifications, and customer-service habits to help discern who you can trust to work in your home.

Best Standards for Minnesota Siding Contractors

Be on the look for at least these minimum viability standards.

  • Siding companies should be fully licensed, bonded, and insured.
  • Good businesses almost always have a web presence (website, social media engagement, etc.). Usually, this is interactive, meaning you can ask questions over a chat feature or comment and Facebook posts.
  • If they do good work, they’ll be proud to showcase it. Check to see if they have a portfolio of work samples you can preview.
  • They should also have a plethora of siding options, including variations in material, color, and special features.
  • Good contractors always honor their service warranties.
  • You shouldn’t feel like you’re dealing with a pushy salesman during the initial consultation.

Check Websites Thoroughly for Qualifications

The Internet is an outstanding resource for researching business viability for everything from restaurants to automotive dealerships to home exterior contractors.

You can always use review websites such as Google Reviews, Yelp, and BloggerLocal to ascertain customer approval. All of these are great ways to gauge what fellow homeowners think about particular contractors. Good siding companies are more than happy to acknowledge good feedback on their websites, which means you won’t have to look very far to find them.

Then there are other things you should find on a website that vouch for their credentials. Do they have accreditation with the Better Business Bureau (BBB)? Since we’re talking about siding, do they possess any special certifications or manufacturer endorsements?

While contractors might be brand new or less web-savvy, you should expect to see visible credentials somewhere. If not, that could be a red flag showing you to shop elsewhere.

Ben Juncker


When Ben Juncker was sitting in his high school career planning class, siding installer was not on his list of potential career paths. As with most people in the construction industry, certain questionable life choices led to a point where they were wearing a tool belt, working with their hands. His path started just this way and he would not change a thing. Those early years in his business of scraping and clawing their way to profitability and stability, have helped him to build a culture of hard work and perseverance at Craftsman’s Choice. Ben started his company in 1998 and they installed their first James Hardie job in 2000. Since that time Craftsman’s Choice has become one of the nation’s top James Hardie Remodelers. They have won James Hardie’s prestigious President’s Club award every year since it’s inception in 2015.
