So, you’ve decided that you’re ready to take the plunge and install a Techo-Bloc outdoor living room. Congratulations! Techo-Bloc is one of the very best designers and manufacturers of landscaping and hardscaping materials, and you really can’t go wrong regardless of which product collections you choose from. Before you can start the total transformation of your backyard and start living like a king, though, you’ve got to go through the process of hiring a contractor who can get the job done right. Do you know how to find the best team for the gig? By asking the following 8 questions, you can narrow down your options and hire a contractor worthy of your business.
1. Are you an authorized Techo-Bloc Contractor?
This is the first and most important question. When it comes to Techo-Bloc installations, not all contractors are made equally. In order to get the job done correctly, a contractor must be officially partnered with the Techo-Bloc brand. This is the best way to guarantee a job well done and to ensure that any Techo-Bloc warranties will be honored in the future.
2. How long have you worked with Techo-Bloc?
It’s smart to get a sense for how long your prospective contractor has been working with Techo-Bloc. This will give you a clue on how familiar the contractor is with various Techo-Bloc products so that you can feel confident that they will be up to the task of handling your outdoor living room installation.
3. How do you train your crew?
Just because a contractor is authorized by Techo-Bloc doesn’t necessarily mean that every new hire is being adequately trained on how to work with and install Techo-Bloc products. Make sure that the team coming to your home has been trained and educated in both the art of Techo-Bloc installations as well as safety.
4. Can I see samples of a Techo-Bloc Outdoor Living Room you completed?
A good contractor will be more than happy to show you photos of the work that they have done on other homes who have installed another Techo-Bloc outdoor living room and other Techo-Bloc products. This will demonstrate the quality of their work.
5. How is your safety record?
Safety on the job is critical, so never overlook the step of looking into your prospective contractor’s safety record.
6. Are you insured?
In addition to verifying safety records, you should also make sure that the contractor carries the proper insurance policies for liability and worker’s compensation.
7. Can you accommodate my schedule?
Before signing a contract, you should make sure that your potential contractor is actually able to get the job done in a timeframe that makes sense for your lifestyle and needs. After all, if you’re hoping to do some entertaining this summer, it won’t do you much good if the contractor can’t start work until October!
8. Will you provide me with customer references
Always be sure to ask your prospects for references to satisfied customers. Speaking with previous clients will provide you with valuable insight about the contractor’s reliability, level of professionalism, and their overall quality of work.
