You want to hire a concrete repair company that’s honest, dependable and most importantly, delivers high-quality results. Your concrete structure, whether it’s a driveway, patio, staircase or home foundation, was a big investment and must be maintained properly.
Ask any potential company on your list to answer the following six questions. Depending on their answers, you will know exactly which one you should hire.
1. Are You Licensed and Insured?
Having a license to work in the local county or municipality is a must. You want to make sure the contractor you choose operates legally.
You should also make sure any company you hire carries adequate insurance coverage so their workers are protected on the job site — your home or business. Otherwise, you could be on the hook for any workers’ compensation claims if an injury occurs.
2. Will You Provide a Quote Up Front?
Giving potential customers a free quote on how much the project will cost shows professionalism and experience. When a contractor can assess accurately the expenses associated with repairing a specific concrete condition, you know the company has completed similar jobs before. When they are willing to share an itemized list of labor and materials, you know they respect you as a potential client.
3. Do You Have Quality References?
A reputed concrete repair company will not only have names and phone numbers of satisfied customers, they will also be able to show you pictures of their past work depicting how they have transformed degraded surfaces.
4. Can You Give an Accurate Timeline for Completion?
Part of a reliable company’s honest disclosure process should involve clearly telling potential clients when their company is free to begin work and how long the project will take.
5. What Type of Material Do You Use?
An upstanding team will not be too general about what products they use. They will be able to tell you in detail which products are used for sealing, crack repair and stabilization and why the products they have chosen are better than others. If they can do this, you will know without a doubt that you have decided on the best concrete repair company in the area.
6. Do You Stand by Your Work?
Will the company be around to answer questions and follow up if a problem arises after the project is complete? All reputable companies offer warranties on their workmanship for a period of time following the end of the work contract.
