28 Jan How to Choose the Best Stucco Installer
If you’re in the process of building a home or you’re considering upgrading the exterior finish of a home you currently have, you should know that stucco is an excellent choice.
When installed correctly, stucco can last up to 50 years before it will need to be replaced.
Yet you’ll want to keep in mind that just because the material itself is durable, that’s not to say that all companies are adept at installing it. You’ll still want to make sure you work with an experienced, licensed installer that has a good reputation for the type of work they do.
If you’re not someone who spends a lot of time looking at online reviews, you’re missing out on a valuable source of information. Yelp, Google+ and Facebook are a great place to find out more about the quality of service a company provides along with the level of customer service that prior clients have received.
If the stucco company you’re considering doesn’t have much of an online presence, this may be cause for concern. In today’s world, almost every company has a website, Facebook page and Yelp page. Contractors that don’t have an online presence may not be licensed or insured—and as we’ve mentioned in the past, it’s never a good idea to work with an unlicensed / uninsured contractor.
Ask for references
When you hire a contractor to do work at your home, it’s always good to ask the company if they can provide you with several local references. The best way to get a true random sample is to ask for references that have a last name that starts with a certain letter. This will help ensure that you’re not going to get a list of prior clients that the company knows will give them the most praise.
Get several quotes
Lastly, you’ll want to get quotes from several stucco installers before you decide which company to hire. You’ll also want to keep in mind that the cheapest bid isn’t always the best bid. You want to make sure you’re hiring the best possible company for the job.
