Options: 10 Mistakes that Most People Make

Ask for referrals.

If you have not hired anyone for tile work before, it’s good to ask your relatives, friends and coworkers to recommend some good companies they might have worked with previously. This is actually the best way to find prospective contractors, as long as you fully trust the person who is giving you the referral. Keep in mind that cowboys do exist in the contracting industry, and it is important to be careful with any candidate you consider.

Interview two or three of your best prospects.

For the sake of service and price comparisons, it’s always smart to consider not just one, but at least two or three prospective contractors, rather than focusing on just one. However, it’s important to give them exactly the same job specs so you can compare apples to apples. Speak to each of them, asking them every single question that you want answers to.

Review portfolios and ask for references.

Before you actually pick a company and sign a contract, first take a look at their portfolio and take note of the quality of their work. Look at the photos (videos, if any) and scrutinize them. Of course, the best option is still to ask the contractor for names and contact information of some of their more recent clients. Give these people a call, and, if they let you, drop by their homes so you can actually see the contractor.

Check the cost.

Lastly, make sure the costs are clear enough prior to committing to any contractor. While you need services at a cheaper cost, it is also vital to ensure that you get quality results, and that services are not compromised for affordability. Pick a company that well-reputed in terms of providing top quality yet reasonably priced results, and one that has built positive and sustainable business relationships in the community.
