Don’t decide purely on price
We know that this will be at the forefront of any decision but it’s important that you feel comfortable with your contractor, that they understand your needs and that you are confident in their abilities.
Once you have made your decision
Get an estimated start and completion date. These dates should be a little flexible as they can often change due to weather conditions and extended time spent on earlier jobs.
Make any changes or amendments from the initial quotation and have an up-to-date quotation agreed and drawn up.
Make sure you understand the plan fully and that the area measurements and order quantities are correct. Take an ongoing interest in the work and if there are any variations to what has been agreed deal with them face-to-face.
