My husband and I hired Jack Allen and his crew at A2Z to cut down 5 trees around our house. Jack came out and gave us a very good deal. We were worried about hurricane season. The previous owner of the house had planted Bradford pear trees around the house. These trees are fast growing and branches can get heavy and dangerous. We had a couple of branches fall off of one tree a couple of months ago during a thunderstorm, so we figured it was time for them to go. One person from Jack's crew came out a day before the project to start planning. They started early the next day and worked all day long. They caused no damage to our property and cleaned up after themselves. They were very polite and even helped my husband move and put together a firewood rack that a neighbor gave us. I would hire A2Z again. I think they did an amazing job at a more than fair price. I feel so much safer now knowing that I won't have to worry about tree limbs falling on my house or a neighbor's house anymore.
You'll always want to ask how long the company has been in business in Walker. 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.
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 Walker as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
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 Walker contractor will know how much they need for a deposit when they've given you the estimate, so ask early.
This will be answered when you ask if all employees are licensed. The only way to obtain a legitimate tradesman's license is to be a legal or naturalized citizen of the US. The company may employ people in positions that don't require a license, however, so it's wise to inquire.
