Ensuring that you get the right driveway contractor for your home or office is as simple as ABC. The three things you need to look out for are as follows:
A – Asking the right questions
B – Background checks
C- Clarify the contract before signing
ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS
Make sure you have a list of questions to ask your shortlist of driveway contractors to help you narrow down the selection of firms or individuals which you are deciding between. A professional contractor will expect an astute customer to want to know the answers to a few pertinent questions; if you get the feeling they don’t want you to probe too deeply, then avoid using them. You will also be able to get a feel for how they will behave on the job as contractors in terms of their communication and timeliness. If they start off being a little gruff and difficult to track down to get answers, then they should not go on your shortlist.
The best way to get a feel for a firm’s professionalism is by asking them to provide a list of references for work they have undertaken. Think about what you want to know from their referees, including questions about the trustworthiness of the driveway contractor, whether they were happy with the work the contractor carried out, whether the contractor kept to the contract, and if it is possible for you to visit their premises to look at the job they completed. Finally, you will also want to know if the customer would use the contractor again, and whether the job has stood the test of time.
