Questions to Ask a Concrete Contractor Before Starting a New Project

Whether you need your driveway replaced, want to build a new patio, or are a business owner in need of a parking lot, you need to hire a concrete contractor to do the work. Before you sign an agreement for services, make sure that you ask the right questions to know whether a specific concrete company is right for you. This is the best thing you can do to avoid ending up with sub-park concrete work at your home or business.

How Long Will it Take and When Can You Start?

2014-10-25 09.25.45The contractor you hire should give you a realistic estimate of how long it will take to finish the job. If the work you need done is simple, it shouldn’t take more than a few days. For a job as involved as constructing a new parking lot, look for a company that honestly assesses how long it would take a crew of concrete contractors to complete the task.

A good concrete company may have a few jobs ahead of yours before they can get started. This is a good sign and shows that its services are in high demand. However, you should avoid a business that accepts your down payment while not having a good idea of when its workers can get started on your project.

How Do You Handle Unexpected Weather?

Business is all about dealing with the unexpected. If your contractor lays your new concrete and there is a torrential downpour an hour later, he or she should be willing to correct the problems this causes. You also need to be flexible and realize that severe weather may delay the start of your project.

Do You Offer a Guarantee?

When you make an investment in your home or business, you want to know that it is going to last. The contractor you hire should provide details about any available warranties as well as how you can exercise them.
