Frequently Asked Questions


Can I stay in my home during the kitchen remodeling process?

Yes, in most cases, it is possible to remain in your home during a kitchen remodeling project. Our team at ABC Remodeling understands the importance of minimizing disruption to your daily routine. We take several measures to ensure a comfortable living environment while the renovation is underway. We establish a designated work area, isolate the construction zone, and take precautions to minimize dust and debris. Additionally, we create a construction schedule that allows for access to essential areas of your home, such as bathrooms and bedrooms. Our team will communicate with you regularly to keep you informed about the progress and any temporary adjustments you may need to make.

Do you offer design services, or do I need to hire an independent designer?

At ABC Remodeling, we are proud to offer comprehensive design services as part of our kitchen remodeling packages. Our experienced team of designers will work closely with you to understand your vision, preferences, and functional requirements. They will then create a customized design plan that maximizes the aesthetics and functionality of your new kitchen. By choosing our in-house design services, you benefit from seamless coordination between the design and construction phases, ensuring a smooth and cohesive remodeling experience. Our goal is to deliver a beautifully designed kitchen that aligns with your unique style and exceeds your expectations.

How long does a kitchen remodeling project typically take?

The duration of a kitchen remodeling project can vary depending on the scope and complexity of the renovation. Generally, a straightforward kitchen remodel can take anywhere from four to eight weeks to complete. However, factors such as structural changes, custom cabinetry, or unforeseen issues may extend the timeline. To provide an accurate estimate, our team at [Company Name] conducts an initial consultation to assess your specific requirements and discuss project timelines in detail. We strive to complete projects efficiently without compromising on quality, ensuring that your dream kitchen is ready for you to enjoy as soon as possible.

Q: A Storm Has Damaged My Roof! Can You Help?

You bet! Being from this region, based in Lancaster, and with so much experience under our belts, we’re no strangers to repairing or replacing storm-damaged roofs. Our difference is that we genuinely CARE, and we’re not just “storm chasers” passing through looking for work.

Q: Am I Always Going To Be Aware Of What’s Being Done?

Without a doubt. We’re extremely thorough and procedural. If something comes up during your project, we’ll make you aware of the issue immediately. With Best, there aren’t going to be any unpleasant surprises or any of the usual games less experienced roofing contractors play.

Q: Are There Financing Options To Help Me If Needed?

You bet. We offer versatile financing options that are far more common than most people think. The vast majority of our exterior remodeling projects (roofing, siding, gutters) are financed. From easy low payments to no-interest options and more, one of our specialists will walk you through your options and help you make the best, most cost-effective decision possible.

Q: Are These Gutter Guards Going To Help With Ice Dams?

Because ice dams are typically caused by poor insulation and ventilation, gutter guards can’t protect against them. They can “reduce the amount of ice buildup in your gutters, helping to reduce serious damage…” from the pitfalls of conventional gutters (vs. our Seamless Gutters) like split seams, loose hangers, and disconnected sections.

Q: Are You Going To Keep Working Until I’m Satisfied?

We couldn’t imagine doing less. As you’ll notice while browsing our 5-star reviews, we genuinely care about our results and your experience. Let’s do as many final checks and walkthroughs as it takes for you to feel absolutely thrilled with your newly upgraded and better-protected home.

Q: Are Your Siding Installers Vetted And Experienced?

Of course. Best Contracting isn’t a huge corporation. We’ve got a comfortably-sized team to handle the Southeastern PA area (based in Lancaster), and we’re like a family. If you’d prefer a tight-knit crew that gets things done together like a well-oiled machine, you’ll enjoy watching us work. Our crews are fast, well-equipped with everything they need, and thousands of successful siding projects reside under their belts.

Q: Aside From Damage, When Should I Consider Roof Replacement?

Small issues like the occasional missing shingles, loose shingles, or small areas that sustain damage – which we’re proficient at repairing – aren’t huge red flags. When we send our inspectors on your roof (and in serious cases, they’ll be HAAG certified), they’re going to look for more serious damage, installation mistakes made by previous roofing installers/contractors, and take into account every variable, including the age of your roof.

Q: Can I Count On All Your Metal Roofing Being High-Quality?

Guaranteed, yes. Best Contracting doesn’t install ANYTHING that we won’t rest our reputation on. And yes, there are “lower” grades of metal, like any other material on the market. That said, by choosing us, whether it’s shingles, metal, or rubber, your new roofing system will be of the highest quality. Our installations are also professional-grade – it’s one of our calling cards across the greater Southeastern PA region.

Q: Can I Count On Best To Respect My Property And Things?

Absolutely. After being in this business for decades, we KNOW how important your property is to you. Your gardens. Your bushes. Your lawn. Your walkways. And so on, oh yeah, we understand. We own homes as well. You’ll see our teams bending over backward to maintain a tidy worksite.

Q: Can I Depend On Your Inspections To Be Fact-Based?

Absolutely. For us, this is a matter of principle, good business, and maintaining our reputation across the Southeastern PA area. Whether we need to call in one of our HAAG certified inspectors or not, you’re going to get 100% transparent fact-based assessments.

Q: Can You Help Me Work With My Insurance Company?

We’re extremely experienced working with insurance companies in the Southeastern PA region. After decades of work, we’ve built relationships and know the process like the backs of our weathered hands. We even have HAAG-certified inspectors to ensure everything is backed by cold hard data and facts. Going to bat and advocating for customers is something we do well!

Q: Can You Help With Full Replacements – Siding, Roofing, And Gutters?

Full replacements of these exterior systems are what we specialize in, yes. We’ve got thousands of successful 5-star projects under our belts, along with the teams, tools, and talent to deliver outstanding detailed results the first time. Can we bundle these services? Oh yeah. In fact, it’s common to do so, for example, with roofing and gutters, or siding and gutters, or roofing and siding. If a full replacement isn’t needed, we’ll let you know right off the bat.

Q: Can You Inspect My Asphalt Commercial Roof For Me?

Our commercial roof inspectors and inspections are the BEST you can get in the Southeastern PA region. If needed, we have HAAG-certified inspectors on staff that can give you detailed information on the state of your commercial roof, what kinds of repairs and maintenance are needed, and more, all backed by cold hard data and scientific principles. Our reports have clout.

Q: Can You Install Other Kinds Of Siding Systems Aside From Vinyl?

Yes, we work with other materials and systems. James Hardie fiber cement systems are a perfect example. That being said, the vast majority of our customers choose CertainTeed for a number of reasons. Once you can sit down with a Best Contracting siding specialist, they’ll walk through the weights and measures of both with you. Our goal is to match you with the perfect siding solution for your home’s needs, your budget, and your personal styling preferences.

Q: Can You Professionally Inspect My Commercial Roof?

Absolutely. If needed, we have HAAG-certified inspectors (this is the industry’s golden standard). We’re happy to inspect your building’s exterior and give you a detailed, line-by-line report that’s fact and evidence-based. Our reports have clout and can be used when dealing with insurance companies. We’ll ensure you’re completely informed on what’s needed, where, and why.

Q: Can You Provide References From Previous Customers?

You bet. We’d be happy to. Along with our certifications and references, be sure to browse our customer reviews as well as our A+ rating with the BBB. We want you to feel 100% comfortable choosing us, and we’ll take out all the stops to put your mind at ease. We’ve been at this for decades and understand the kind of strain you might be feeling when it comes to your roof.

Q: Can You Tell Me If My Current Siding Needs To Be Replaced?

We’d be happy to. Simply Contact Us, and we can get everything scheduled. One of our inspectors will come out, take a look at everything and give you a breakdown – including information on products, materials, manufacturers, you name it.

Q: Do You Offer Financing On Exterior Remodeling Projects?

We do. The vast majority of our exterior remodeling projects – roofing, siding, and gutters – are financed. We offer a versatile range of property-owner-friendly options. All you have to do is tell your Best Contracting specialist you’re interested and they’ll fill you in from A to Z.

Q: Do You Offer Other Kinds Of Commercial Roofing Systems?

Yes, we also off Asphalt Commercial Roofing services and Rubber Commercial Roofing services. Feel free to browse those pages on our site and Contact Us with any questions, or concerns, or to schedule a free consultation.

Q: Do You Provide Commercial Roofing Repair Services?

We do. Full replacements aren’t always needed. We have a small fleet of fully-stocked company trucks, and the most common repairs we do are on commercial roofs. They take a beating in ways residential roofing systems don’t. Simply give us a call, and we’ll get the process started.

Q: During Removal & Installation, Will You Protect My Property?

Without question. This is something we put a lot of focus on because it’s important. We have our own equipment to handle getting up and around things and disposing of waste without hurting your walkways, landscaping, windows, etc. In fact, we’ll walk you through everything we’re going to do step by step, right there at your home, before the project begins so your mind is at ease.

Q: How Do I Know When It’s Time To Replace My Old Gutters?

Great question! Other than the obvious wear and tear you can see from the yard (not to mention foundation problems), look for the impacts of water damage on the property – i.e., mold, peeling paint, clogging, sagging, or even too many insects, indicating a section of your gutters is holding standing water. That said, you’ll find all kinds of gimmicks and so-called “solutions” on the market, but none compare to the simple power of seamless gutters with gutter guards. Your Best Contracting consultant will fill you in on the details and explain how it’ll work for your home.

Q: How Do You Ensure My Seamless Gutters Are A Perfect Fit?

Unlike sectional gutters that you can just run down to any hardware store and pick up for cheap, seamless gutters come in a large metallic roll and are then cut with specialized equipment right there at your home, to EXACT specifications. No seams. No cheap connectors. Instead, they do their job properly and hold up well in our Southeastern PA weather.

Q: How Experienced With CertainTeed Siding Are You?

We’re extremely familiar with CertainTeed and have an awesome business relationship with them on multiple fronts. Not only do we specialize in their siding systems, but we’re also a certified CertainTeed ShingleMaster on the roofing side of things. Our crews know their systems like the backs of their weathered hands, and we consistently prove ourselves year after year to maintain our credentials and certifications.

Q: How Long Do New EPDM Rubber Roofing Systems Last These Days?

First and foremost, how long your new commercial roofing system lasts depends on the quality of your installation. This can’t be overstated. On the other hand, improper, rushed, or sloppy installations can cause you headaches, let alone reduce the lifespan of your new roof. Your new rubber roof should typically perform well for 40+ years thanks to its durability.

Q: How Long Does A Roof Replacement Or Siding Job Take?

A: The time involved in finishing a project depends on many factors, such as what type of project it is, the materials needed to complete the project, and how extensive the project will be. Feel free to give us a call, and a Best Contracting professional will come assess your home to give you an estimate on cost and time.

Q: How Long Will My New Commercial Asphalt Roofing System Last?

If you were asking us about your home, we could probably give you a rough idea – assuming we aren’t bundling projects like siding services. But, with commercial asphalt roofing projects, it’s impossible. Rest assured (and this is backed by our Customer Reviews) we work quickly, efficiently, procedurally, and with precision. From our products to our tools and technology, we pull out all the stops for our customers.

Q: How Long Will My Roof Replacement Project Take?

The best answer to this question is that we’re going to bend over backward to get it done on time and as soon as we possibly can…without sacrificing ANY quality in the process. Generally, it’s going to depend on the scope/complexity of the project and the size we’re talking about.

Then there could be a number of repairs we need to do, and so on. The good news is you’ll be fully informed on everything that’s happening, when, why, and how, so you’re always in the loop.

Q: How Long Will My Siding Project Take From Start To Finish?

Like any home construction or improvement project, it’s natural to want to know when everything will be completed. Once we have a chance to meet you, inspect your property, get an idea of the materials involved, what line we’re going with, what kinds of repairs are required, and so on, we’ll give you a reliable timeline. Our average siding project can take anywhere from 2-3 days to a week or more, depending on the scope/complexity of the project (often, people bundle services like roofing and siding together).

Q: How Long Will My Stucco Remediation Project Take?

A great and popular question. Unfortunately, there’s no universal or blanket answer. Your project is unique and will come with a unique set of variables, like any other project. The good news is there won’t be any surprises because we bend over backward to ensure you’re fully informed.

Q: How Well Do Your Gutter Guards Handle Heavy PA Rain?

They’re designed to handle 14+ inches of rain per hour, which is a ton of water. This is what helps them perform so well in our part of the country. Over time, they’re becoming more and more of a standard as the benefits make them an undeniably wise investment.

Q: I Have A Pitched Roof. Can I Use EPDM Rubber?

No. Because of a number of different variables, EPDM shouldn’t be used on your roof unless it’s a low-slope or flat roof. One of our specialists is happy to explain why and then walk you through the best options we can offer for commercial structures with pitched roofs. We’re here to help.

Q: Overall, What Are The Most Popular Benefits Of Seamless Gutters In Southeastern PA?

Along with a much SMALLER chance of leaks, the lack of seams makes them look better (more color options). They give your home a sleek profile. You also won’t need to worry about painting or maintaining them. And in terms of installation, we typically finish in a day and cut the gutters to exact specifications to give your home the most protection possible.

Q: Replacement Isn’t In The Budget. How About Repairs?

We completely understand, and yes, we do plenty of Roof Service & Repair work every year. We have a small fleet of fully-stocked and branded trucks to get the job done well and quickly. If repairs are found during your inspection that we can get done that day, then that’s exactly what we’ll do. We work to get results as soon as possible for simple or severe repairs.

Q: So, You Don’t Reapply Stucco?

No, we remediate the material. It’s, more often than not, inadequate. Instead, we remove it, make any and all necessary repairs, and then re-wrap and re-side the home with high-grade materials. The #1 determining factor on how long your siding lasts is the skill of your installers.

Q: What Are Common Signs My Stucco Needs To Be Remediated?

Moisture. Once it penetrates the stucco, you can repair it as much as you want, but it’ll usually just come right back. If moisture penetration isn’t apparent, then look for cracking and staining. Your Best Contracting specialist will give you the complete breakdown during your inspection.

Q: What Are The Main Benefits Of Stucco Remediation?

First, stucco remediation is a permanent fix, solving underlying issues that caused the damage. Remediation also protects the rest of your home from problems because when stucco is damaged by water penetration, it’s a sign that interior structures may also be impacted.

Q: What Areas Of Lancaster County Do You Serve?

A: We provide home remodeling for all Lancaster County, including Landisville, and more. If you’re a Lancaster County resident—or in the South Central or Southeastern PA area—give us a call!

Q: What Do Your Services Cost?

A: We know that you may find cheaper services out there, but you won’t find better quality. Our prices align with the cost of doing the job RIGHT the first time, so you won’t have to pay someone else to do it again. We offer third-party financing and help with insurance claims to offset the cost of the job.

Q: What Kind Of Damage Do Asphalt Shingles Typically Get?

Other than general wear and tear over time and through season after season, in our area, hail and high winds cause a lot of problems every year. Head on over to our Storm Damage Repair page to learn more about the types of damage we typically see and why we’re the best choice.

Q: What Makes Best Contracting So Efficient With Repairs?

The reason our teams are so fast-acting and we’re known for our quick response times is about three things:

  • We have a small fleet of fully-stocked trucks that can handle just about anything.
  • We use cutting-edge equipment and quality tools and materials.
  • We’ve got tons (decades) of experience.

Q: What Makes You The BEST Choice For My Commercial Roofing Project?

We believe it’s a combination of things: our local industry experience, commercial roofing experience, our expertise in general, our Southeastern PA reputation, and our process and professional workmanship. Beyond these characteristics of our company, there’s our passion for YOU, our customers. Hence, why the service you’ll get from us is top-notch, from A to Z.

Q: What Makes You The BEST Choice For My Commercial Roofing Project?

If you were to ask not us this question but our commercial customers, we believe they’d talk about our process first and foremost and then our results. We’re business owners ourselves. We’ve got decades of experience working with both property owners and on-site teams. And we’re quick and cost-effective without sacrificing ANY critical long-term, high-quality value.

Q: What Materials Are The Gutter Guards Made Of?

In terms of the GutterRx line, those are made of 98% recycled aluminum – hence, why they come with a lifetime warranty on top of the coverage we offer here at Best Contracting. You and your home are going to be well taken care of over the long haul.

Q: What Should I Expect During My Initial Siding Consultation?

Lots of valuable information and specifics. We aren’t interested in sales. No one really wants to be sold something. What’s important is to match you with the siding solution that meets all the many things that make you, your home, and your project unique. We’ve got to assess the home and then, step by step, go through the variables with you to nail down what will work best. It’s important for you to understand costs, warranties, who we are and how we work, etc. So, expect the consultation to take a little time rather than being a quick chat.

Q: Where Do Your Commercial Roofing Bids Tend To Fall? High, Low?

Even with Residential Roofing, this is a really tough question if you want a pinpoint answer. Commercial roofing projects tend to be bigger in scope and have a fair amount of variables that residential projects aren’t concerned with. You can count on our bid being FAIR, transparent, detailed, and backed by data/facts. We don’t bother with nonsense or pricing games.

Q: Where Do Your Prices Tend To Fall In Southeastern PA?

This is a tough question to answer. When we give a homeowner our breakdown of pricing for their project, it’s not “high” or “low.” We aren’t concerned with that at all. The most important things for us during this part of the process are to be as accurate and as transparent as possible. That’s what you can expect. Most homeowners would say we’re not the cheapest, but we’re often not the most expensive either.

Q: Where Does The Price For This Caliber Of Gutter Guards Fall?

While the gutter guards we install aren’t cheap, flimsy products, the overall cost is impossible to say without knowing all the factors involved, like scope. Rest assured, you’re going to know the details and pricing inside and out before any documents are signed. We don’t bother with sales. We focus on educating customers so there are zero surprises, and they’re completely satisfied when everything’s installed.

Q: Why Are Seamless Gutters So Much More Popular Than Sectional?

The long and short of it is this – without seams (only at the inside/outside corners), there's no chance of leaking, which is what you get with traditional gutters since they can leak at every seam. Also, with cheap sectional gutters, you’ve got tons of cheap snap-in-place connectors, which themselves are likely to break down and cause leaks. These two points alone make seamless far superior.

Q: Why Are You My Best Option For Storm Damage Repair?

It’s a combination of our expertise, our experience, our specialist teams, and our commitment to long-lasting quality with every detail. But don’t ask us, refer to our customer reviews from folks who’ve dealt with a storm in our area and who gave us a call. We help quickly and with integrity.

Q: Why Are You The Best Choice For My Commercial Metal Roofing Project?

We believe it’s a combination of our local industry experience, commercial roofing experience in Southeastern PA, our expertise in general, our reputation, and our process and professional workmanship. Beyond these characteristics of our company, there’s our passion for our customers. The service you’ll get from us is top-notch, from A to Z.

Q: Why Choose Best Contracting?

We are number one when it comes to customer service, treating each customer like family. We tend to underpromise and overdeliver our services and never compromise on quality.

Q: Why Should I Invest In Re-Siding My Home?

First and foremost, it’s a positive ROI investment across the nation in nearly every case. Fresh, new, quality siding doesn’t just boost curb appeal and overall property value; it almost makes it seem like a brand-new home! Whether you plan to sell soon or not, all the many benefits are well-known, like improved security, improved protection, reduced energy costs, etc.

Q: Will Everyone On My Project Be Vetted And Covered?

Of course. Best Contracting is one of the most experienced, certified, and specialized roofing contractors in the entire Southeastern PA region (based in Lancaster). We not only take every step to protect our customers but our company and brand as well. You can count on Best.

Q: Will I Have To Worry About Critters & Birds Anymore?

No. Due to their design, it would be extremely difficult for critters like squirrels or birds to get inside and make a nest. Water can get in there with no problem, but anything else is pretty much out of luck.

Q: Will Metal Roofing Be A Better Investment Than Asphalt Shingles?

Generally speaking, quality commercial metal roofing systems are going to have higher upfront costs than shingle systems. However, metal lasts longer and requires less upkeep costs over its lifetime. When you sit down with your Best Contracting roofing specialist, they will happily walk you through the weights and measures of both and help you make the highest-value choice.

Q: Will There Always Be Someone I Can Contact During The Project?

You bet. You’ll have a project manager, you can always call our office, and don’t be surprised if our owners show up. They can’t make it to every single job throughout the year, but oversight and quality control are paramount! You’ll also be able to chat with any of our team members.

Q: Will There Be Plenty Of Project Oversight?

No part of our residential roof repair or replacement process is done haphazardly. Every step of our approach is polished and seasoned by decades of direct experience. Your questions will be answered. Issues will be addressed. And you’re going to feel extremely well taken care of.

Q: Will You Help Me Choose The Best Siding Products & Styling?

Oh, you bet. One of our residential siding product specialists will be happy to walk you through your many options, including different kinds of materials (like vinyl or fiber cement), so you fully understand the benefits and costs and everything else. We don’t sell anything. We match folks with solutions that meet their home’s needs, budgeting needs, and styling preferences.

Q: Will You Help Me Choose The Color For My Seamless Gutters?

Sure thing. We’re going to sit down and walk you through all the options, what our process entails, everything. And after installing seamless gutters for folks across the region for decades, we know a lot about what works and what doesn’t in this respect. As you see by our galleries, like the Residential Before & Afters, we address every detail.

Q: Will You Help Me Choose The Right Shingles For My Budget/Home?

Of course, we’re thrilled and happy to help our customers get the absolute BEST shingles and shingle systems not only for their budget and home but their styling preferences as well. Being specialized in GAF, CertainTeed, and Owens Corning alone gives us a huge assortment to choose from and to find that picture-perfect match. Our product specialists are well-experienced.

Q: Will You Help Me Pick The Right Styling For My Property?

Absolutely. While in the past, commercial metal roofing systems lacked variety in the styling department, these days, that’s all changed. We’ll ensure you get the best color and style possible for your structure(s) that looks great – including all the accessories and detailing.
