As of June 2015, Ply Gem's website has a page to help consumers find local Mastic Home Exteriors professionals. From the homepage, click on the How to Buy tab. On the next page, select Find a Professional.
The Find a Professional page lets you perform a search for Mastic Home Exteriors professionals. Using the menu boxes, select a search distance between 10 and 100 miles or kilometers. Then, input your zip code and click on the Locate button to obtain a list of local contractors. The results page includes addresses, phone numbers, and whether the contractor is affiliated with an organization such as the Better Business Bureau or Dreamhome Professionals.
The list also shows the distance from the input zip code. In addition, all contractors have links that connect to Google maps showing their locations.
In addition to letting site users find local professionals, Ply Gem's How to Buy tab links to pages with other information about choosing a contractor. For example, Hiring a Contractor recommends questions to ask potential contractors during interviews, such as "How do you work with your customers on a daily basis?" Preferred Contractors lists the qualifications of Mastic Preferred Contractors. These include experience levels, insurance and bonding. The Look for Certifications page describes two organizations contractors belong to: the National Association of Home Builders and the National Association of Remodeling Industry.
