Finding the right contractor can often be a chore. You’ve heard horror stories from friends about getting a contractor who was difficult to work with or who quit halfway through. You want to avoid the concrete contractor drama at all costs. So what do you need to look for? Check out the following tips from Professional Property Maintenance of Dayton.
1. Do your research. Gather references.
Ask anyone and everyone who will give you input, advice, and references for a good concrete contractor. We recommend that you start with trusted friends and family first. This way, you can even go check out the finished concrete project to see the workmanship firsthand. Then, if needed, you may want to expand your search to social media groups to which you belong or check local service review sites.
2. Check the concrete contractor’s credentials.
Browse the contractor’s website to get a feel for the company’s credibility. Look for how long the concrete contractor has been established in the community. Is the contractor certified and a member of professional organizations? If the information is not readily available on the website, give the contractor a call and ask. If the company is unable to provide credentials, keep looking.
3. Conduct interviews.
Meet with at least three concrete contractors to get a quote, see examples of past work, talk about the steps in the process, and get a feel for the level of customer service. During the interview, be sure to ask about materials used, adherence to local codes, and the projected timeline.
4. Go with your gut.
After you’ve gathered information and done your interviews, choose a concrete contractor who makes you feel at ease. From the contractor’s communication skills and materials used to the budget, you should be confident in the person you choose for the job. If you’re uneasy, don’t be afraid to keep looking.
