Need some drywall work done around the house? The Toronto area is full of drywall contractors. So how does one narrow the field to find people that will work well for you?
Here are three important aspects you need to consider when hiring a professional drywall contractor:
Do your homework to find out what type of name they have in Toronto. In the age of internet you have all the information you need at your fingertips. Use Google, Yahoo or Bing to find how you potential drywall contractors are represented online. Do they have a website? Do they have pictures and videos covering their projects? They can help you quickly assess their qualification. In the age of social web it makes sense to check out reviews online. Websites like Homestars, Google Pages and even Facebook allow clients to leave their reviews and testimonials. Drywall contractors should be in the business of turning customers into spokespeople, at every job they work. So ask your friends and family who they’ve used and who they like and can recommend.
This is a great way to make sure your job will be done on time and on budget
Get some price quotes and think about how much you can afford to spend. Larger companies may charge more, but may bring more credibility and guarantee to the table. At the same time, newer and smaller companies may be willing to do a bit more to get the job and earn your referral when the job is done. However, keep in mind, if the offer is too good to be true, probably it is and you may end up paying twice if you risk to hire an unqualified contractor. A lot of homeowners hire us to fix the poor work that has been done by someone else. Of course the cost of fixing is higher than that of a new project.
This can be a deal-breaker. Decide exactly when you need your project done. If there’s no big rush, a company that can’t start for another 2 weeks is fine. However, if you need this done before you have guests over the long weekend, make sure your crew can be in and out by then. Keep in mind though, most reputable companies have their schedules filled up, hence their reputation, and usually require a 2-3 week prior notice.
