In need of a surfacing contractor for your commercial premises, but no idea how to choose the right contractor for the job?
Hiring the right contractor for your surfacing can save you time, money and hassle. We’re pinpointing some key things to look out for when researching your options for surfacing contractors to ensure your choice is reputable, qualified and goes the extra mile with their customer service.
How reputable are they?
Every manager’s nightmare is to get caught out by a rogue trader. To avoid this, there are several things you can look out for.
Firstly, you can take a look at the company’s customer reviews. Sites such as SafeBuy pool reviews from legitimate review sites, including Google and Trustpilot. If there are consistently good reviews, then chances are the surfacing contractor is one you can trust.
You can also look at their history, including their list of clients. If plenty of well-known company names show up on the list, then you’re likely to be in good hands.
What’s their workmanship like?
Another indicator of a reputable surfacing contractor is whether they have any awards or accreditations. If a company is City & Guilds accredited for instance it means the contractors are properly trained for the job and can complete the work to a high standard.
What’s their customer service like?
Again, the best way to check customer service is to look at customer reviews. However, getting to know a company’s customer service is not just about checking for 5-star ratings.
As a business or organisation, finding a surfacing contractor who will work around your needs and tailor their contract and services to suit you is important.
Do you require a contractor who can surface outside business hours? Are you looking for a contractor who goes above and beyond to provide high-quality surfacing? Do you need help choosing your surfacing material, or have you got all the specifications down to the last detail?
Making sure you choose a contractor who can meet your needs and work in a way that suits you is important – and that’s where checking how flexible a company is can make all the difference.
If you’re not sure how flexible they are, you can always give them a call.
Do they offer a free site survey?
Most commercial contractors should offer a free site survey. Why? This gives both you and the contractor the opportunity to discuss the project before signing any binding contracts.
It’s also the most effective way to provide a quote.
Seeing the contractor in person before you pay any money is also another way to ensure you’re choosing a reputable surfacing contractor.
