Best Questions to Ask an Engineer Contractor
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 Tuscaloosa as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
Are you insured and/or bonded for Engineers?
You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Alabama, 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.
Do you hire properly documented Engineers workers?
How long have you been in Engineers business for/How long have been serving the Tuscaloosa area?
You'll always want to ask how long the company has been in business in Tuscaloosa. 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.
