Best Questions to Ask a Basement Waterproofing Contractor Contractor
Are you insured and/or bonded for Basement Waterproofing?
You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Ohio, because that means that any incidental damage they may do on your property will be a real hassle to recover compensation for. It is never wise to work with uninsured tradesmen of any kind. Most states also require that someone have insurance in order to be issued a trade license. If they say they're licensed but not insured, they're being less than truthful.
Are you union or non-union?
This really only matters if you have a preference, but it is good to ask. If you have a strong ideological belief about unions or nonunions, it's perfectly acceptable to make a decision based on the preference.
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 Cleveland as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
Is your bill for Basement Waterproofing in Cleveland 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.
Does the Basement Waterproofing job require permits? If so, will you be pulling them yourself?
Many jobs in Ohio will require municipal permits in order to be approved by the town's inspector. It's always good to ask who will be responsible for pulling those permits, and if you'll be expected to do it. You'll almost never be told to pull your own, but knowing that Cleveland Basement Waterproofing permits are required makes you appear to be a well informed customer.
