If you’re building your dream home, you want everything to go right the first time. Nothing is more frustrating than having to start something over or delay progress because of a contractor who didn’t follow through. Choosing a concrete contractor is just as important of a step as any other in your construction project process, so here are a few tips to keep in mind when deciding who to entrust with your projects.
4 Tips for Choosing the Right Concrete Contractor
- Research & Know What You Need – Pouring concrete is not a ‘one size fits all’ kind of job. Whether you are pouring a driveway, basement, garage floor, or patio, your needs will change. Luckily, Concrete Mobile Mix has experience with each of these different projects and knows how to navigate each one. However, it’s wise to know what your specific project will require and look for a contractor that has expertise in that area.
- Ask the Right Questions – It’s not enough to ask questions with no purpose. You need to know which questions to ask. Consider your time frame, ask about permits, insurance, and the contract. Concrete takes time to dry, and so have an idea of when it needs to be finished. Your concrete contractor should have sufficient insurance so that you will not be financially responsible if something goes wrong. The contract should be detailed in outlining costs, timelines, and follow-up standards.
- What is the Guarantee? – Although you’re choosing the correct contractor to minimize problems, even the most experienced pros can encounter road blocks. If your project ends up having a lot of obstacles, you want your contractor to be competent and able to navigate them. Ask your contractor about their guarantees and what their process is in case follow-up work is necessary. A lot can be said about a contractor by the way they handle set-backs and can fix unexpected problems.
- Experience & References Matter – Never be afraid to ask your contractor about their experience, qualifications, or for references. A good company will be happy to provide you with information about their past projects. Concrete Mobile Mix has worked with dozens of companies in both commercial and residential projects, giving us extensive experience in the industry. We’d be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
