advice for getting estimates?
Not sure if I should post this here or in maybe remodeling (or both?), but I post here most often, so I'll start here. We are going to start getting quotes for fixing roof and siding. We will need done:
1. very soon, replace bottom 2 courses of rotting siding (can't afford to do whole house yet)
2. very soon, side around 2nd story window PO put in and never sided, looks like larger window was replaced with smaller for some reason (years ago according to neighbors, it "seems" to be well protected, hopefully). Or maybe put original sized window in instead.
3. within 1 or 2 max years, new tear off roof w/radiant barrier, possibly some flashing (spelling?) done in the meantime
4. NEEDS to be done but will have to wait a little bit, eventually replace all siding (insulated)
Our house was built in the 1920's. I've never done this before, what kind of things do I need to ask and watch out for when getting this info?
