As you hire a masonry contractor, you’re working with someone who will be doing some brick or stone work on your house be it in the sidewalk, porch, fireplace and so on. If this is just your first time enlisting the service of one, there are few things that you need to inquire prior to hiring them. An important thing to take into consideration is that, the mason you want to hire is trained and qualified to work on any materials related for Sedalia Masonry works.
And natural rock, stone, ceramic, concrete brick or terra cotta tiles are only few of these materials. Remember that not all the masonry contractors share the same level of experience or skills so make it a point that you’ve done research on your prospects before getting their service. This is a must to be certain that the one you will be working with can really deliver what you are expecting them to do.
After you are done gathering few names of masons, call them and set an appointment to visit your house and give you a quote of the work that has to be done. When the contractor has finally given you the estimated cost of the project, you should now ask if they have general contractor license and if they’re certified. If they do, ask if they could show you their license as well as certification. If they say that it’s in their shop, then set aside a time and date when you can visit them.
You need to ask your prospective masonry contractor you want to hire when they expect to complete the job. Even though you can’t get specific end date in stone because of the unexpected issues similar to rain or whatever, the contractor should provide you with tentative date of completion.
Another question that you should ask is if they can give any references from past customers. You’ve got to ask your masonry contractor if they can provide you 3 names at least and contact info. Once you got the list, call them and inquire if they are happy and satisfied with the work of the mason and on how they would rate their Sedalia Tile Installation service. As a client, it is your job as well to inquire if the contractor is covered by insurance, what is their payment schedule and to who is the one in charge for purchasing the materials. You must figure out who’ll be doing the cleanup once the project is done, will they leave the site as is or cleaning is also part of their service?
