10 Oct What to Look for When Choosing a Plastering Company
Not all plastering companies are created alike. Yes, they all provide the same type of service, but there can be many differences when it comes to skill, workmanship and the level of customer care they provide to their clients.
Regardless as to whether you’re about to start looking for a plastering company or if you’ve started looking recently but you haven’t made a final decision, these are the things you should keep an eye out for.
Are they reliable?
One of the best ways to measure the level of service you’ll receive from a plastering company is to find out what their prior clients are saying about them. Do they have a Yelp page? If so, what do the comments look like? If you’ve found a company that has a lot of positive online reviews, this is a good sign. But you shouldn’t stop there.
Ask them if they can provide you with some client references. One of the best ways to get a random sampling (as opposed to a few that the company hand selects) is to ask for several references whose last names begin with a certain letter.
Are they local?
When you work with a local company it will be easier for you to check their credentials. It will also be able to find out through friends and neighbors if the company has a good reputation. Be sure to ask the plastering company to provide you with proof of license and insurance before you agree to have any work done.
Are they affordable?
When you interview service providers you should ask each one to provide you with a bid, and yes, some are likely to be far more expensive than the others. At the same time, you should never, ever book a contractor based on price alone. You don’t want to sacrifice quality in an effort to save a few bucks. Remember, it’s nearly impossible to fix flaws in plastering work that were made by a sub-standard contractor. In most cases, large parts of walls and/or ceilings will need to be scraped off.
If you make a decision based on price alone and you fail to check whether the company has a good reputation, the money you save on the front end can pale in comparison to what you’ll need to pay to fix their work on the back end.
