Best Questions to Ask a Demolition Expert Contractor
Is your bill for Demolition in Waco an estimate or a final price?
This is very important, since an estimate is just that. Many contractors will submit a "paper estimate", meaning they've written the estimate down on paper. The bill is the true amount owed and will almost always say "Invoice" or "Bill" at the top of the page. The bill should also list the date it was issued, the due date of payment, and a list of services rendered.
How much do I have to give as a deposit?
Some companies may require a 10% deposit, some may not require any. For larger projects, you'll almost always need to give a deposit, and it's good to ask how much the deposit will be before going forward with a project. The Waco contractor will know how much they need for a deposit when they've given you the estimate, so ask early.
How long have you been in Demolition business for/How long have been serving the Waco area?
You'll always want to ask how long the company has been in business in Waco. While this isn't a guarantee that the company will do good work, companies with longevity on their side must be doing something right. That being said, there are newer companies that do great work. If the company is under three years old, ask where the owner was employed before and for how long. If he/she has a long history of employment, it's reasonable to infer that he or she decided to go into business for themselves after so many years of experience.
Do you have any references that I can contact?
Always ask for references, and always check them. Keep in mind though that the only references you'll get are people who the contractor is certain will give him a good review. You'd also be well advised to check online review sources in Waco as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
Do you work with subcontractors?
The question is great for some industries and non-applicable for others. A general contractor, for example, will by definition employ subcontractors. Most Waco Demolition companies do not, but there are exceptions. You should always ask this question to your service providers. If they do use subcontractors, ask if they're all licensed and insured independently.
