Price & Craftsmanship
Always compare what is in the written estimate/proposal (not what is said)
in regard to surface preparation, protection of your personal property,
what type of materials will be used, and how many coats will be applied.
The lowest price and the best value are very rarely the same. Always get
three estimates and compare each of them to see what you are really getting
for your money. Compare craftsmanship, quality of materials, and service.
Liability & Workmen's Compensation Insurance
Liability and Workmen's Compensation Insurance protects the customer
if something is accidentally damaged or if a worker is injured while on
your property. Always ask for proof of insurance. Don't just take a contractors
word for it.
Be cautious of exaggerated warranties. Please keep in mind that any
warranty is only as good as the company itself. They may sound great,
but are they realistic? Can the company really back up those claims?
A well-written estimate/proposal will include a complete job description,
the approximate time frame, and the cost. Make sure that all your concerns
and requirements are addressed in writing in the estimate/proposal before
signing. Don't be afraid to voice your concerns!
Promptness If a contractor will keep their appointment
for an estimate, it's more likely that they will be prompt in arriving
to and completing your project when they say they will. Our customer's
time is very valuable and we respect that.
