These guys are amazing, not one of those businesses that try to add in extra services that you don't need, there are no smoke and mirrors when it comes to their processes or recommendations. Rob went over the issues on each tree, solutions and his professional opinion of the outcome on each tree. Him and his worker Dave were very personable and put us at ease about a large unexpected expenditure. Thanks to Rob's good work i don't think i will need him back here, but that is the best kind of service is the one that does it right the first time, but if any issues ever come up again for our little family or any friends i would choose them again 100% of the time. Don't look for anybody else they are the whole package, safety, precision, finesse, patient, affordable (best price i saw), customer oriented, and definitely the most personable of contractors i've ever hired
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 Graham as well, which will give you a broader view of customer satisfaction for a given company.
Though a standard question, it's important to ask. Most contractors will tell you how long they expect the job to take without you asking. If they don't volunteer that information, be sure to ask. It's also helpful to ask if that's a hard finish date, meaning that it's the definite finish date. If it's a soft finish date, it may be extended for any number of reasons.
The question is great for some industries and non-applicable for others. A general contractor, for example, will by definition employ subcontractors. Most Graham Tree Service 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.
Many jobs in Washington 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 Graham Tree Service permits are required makes you appear to be a well informed customer.
