What You Must Consider When Hiring a Drywall Contractor
When you decide to hire a drywall contractor, it can not only make your property look incredible, but it will relieve the hassle of trying to do the drywall project yourself. However, when hiring a drywall contractor, it is imperative to make the right decision by knowing what to look for and asking the right questions. In the long run, hiring the right person can save you time and money.
First, you might want to ask around. Talk with friends, family members, and co-workers that have had good experiences with professional drywall contractors in the area for their own properties. Also, you should also get estimates from at least three drywall contractors. Compare the estimates, as they all should be around the same price range.
You will want to interview the drywall contractor. You can ask the person questions like:
• How long have you been in business? • Are you licensed? • Can you provide references? • Do you hold membership in any professional organizations? • What type of tools do you use? What type of products will you be using? • Will you offer any guarantees of your work?
When you meet with the prospective drywall contractor, mannerism and behavior says everything. Even if the person is busy, he or she should be able to return phones, emails, etc. when you ask questions. The individual should also have a professional, businesslike manner and speak clearly and confidently to you regarding what will be done to your Pewaukee, WI home or business. A lot of “uh-huh” and “yeah” should be a sign that this person might not be the one for you to hire.
If you are ready to hire and a contract is drawn up, make sure you review it carefully. It should have everything you two discussed, as well as certain factors that might not have been mentioned, including prep work on the area/room drywall will be applied, cleanup after the project, and how and when payment will be disbursed.
