Questions for a Drywall Crew
You don’t want to find a contractor that only meets all your drywall needs, you want a contractor to also meet your need to feel safe and secure; this way, you know you can trust them to do their job effectively, and in a time line that’s convenient for you. Here are some topics to consider when looking for a company to provide drywall installation, repair, or replacement:
Ask about a contractor’s time in the field. Inquire how long their company has been in business and how many years of experience their crew has in the industry. This will allow you to distinguish between a reputable and thriving company and a fly-by-the-night scam. Ten years is a good amount of experience for a drywall contractor to have, but this can vary depending on skill. This is why it is also a good idea to review some of their past work to confirm their skill level.
Be sure to ask your drywall contractor if they are licensed and insured. Any dependable drywall repair company will be licensed and insured. Experience is another vital credential. This lets you know they retain the knowledge and skills necessary to provide accurate work. Also check for industry-related memberships, as well as, BBB and Angie’s List-type memberships. This is a good sign as well, but not a deal-breaker.
☑ Services Offered
You must voice your expectations for drywall service, otherwise, you may choose a company that doesn’t offer all the services you need. Ask them about all the drywall services they offer, and if they can offer all the services specific to your property. At this point, it is wise to also inquire about their grade of equipment, and whether or not they are fully staffed and equipped to get the job done within your preferred timeline.
