There are several reasons that you may be considering hiring a masonry contractor. From patio installation to retaining walls, a masonry contractor should be qualified in various areas of brick and stonework. However, having peace of mind that your project is in the best hands means knowing what questions to ask.
In this article, we’re presenting you with a few questions that every contractor you’re considering hiring should be asked.
Are you licensed, certified, and insured?
Before you even begin conversations with a contractor, the number one priority is to determine whether or not they are insured. A company that is insured and licensed is worth going forward with. If not, they are not only putting their company at risk but potentially your property as well.
Can you provide references and a portfolio?
Another crucial aspect to finding the right masonry contractor is research. Ask for references and follow up. Although there are several online resources, an old fashioned one on one conversation will sometimes open your eyes to who you’re considering dealing with.
Furthermore, having access to a portfolio of work provides peace of mind. If you’re considering patio installation, seeing the contractor’s work will give you a solid idea of what they can (and can not) handle.
What is your process?
Knowing what to expect when the work begins is just as important as knowing who you’re hiring. A reputable company will have a defined workflow with timing expectations. You should also be in the know-how potential speed bumps are handled and payment schedule.
Do you offer warranties on your work?
Finally, but certainly no less important is understanding your protection. While most companies offer warranties on their work, you may be surprised to find that many do not. Even if for a small period of time, a guarantee on work provides insight to what level of craftsmanship you can expect.
