21 Mar Questions to Ask a Plastering Company Before You Hire Them
If you’ve come to the decision that it’s time to repair one or more plaster walls at your home, or you’ve decided you’d like to add plaster walls to your residence, you’ll want to make sure you hire the best company for the job.
For this post, we wanted to discuss some of the questions you should ask a contactor before you hire them.
Are you licensed and insured?
This is the first thing you’ll want to ask a service provider before you commit to having work done. There are countless horror stories on the Internet about people who, either intentionally or unintendedly, hired an unlicensed service provider in hopes of saving a few dollars. When this happens there are any number of things that could go wrong. They may start the work only to disappear before it’s done, or they may take a deposit and once they have your money, they stop returning your calls. It’s also worth noting that if an uninsured worker is injured while on your property, you could be legally liable to pay their medical expenses. Never, ever hire an unlicensed and/or uninsured plastering company.
Have you completed jobs like this before?
If you need decorative work done, you’ll want to make sure the workers are experienced in this area. If the person you’re speaking with says the company has been in business for years, but they’ve never done a job that’s similar to what you need to have done, you’d be best served by hiring someone else.
Do you have photos of prior jobs you can show me?
Like the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Plastering requires a high level of skill; if a company has lots of photos on their social media pages, this is a good sign. If you’d like to see their work in person, ask if they have prior clients that may be willing to let you see the work that was done at their homes.
