Prepping For Fall

So far, August has been good to us. We’re enjoying these cooler temperatures, but don’t get caught because I’m betting it will turn back into our typical Texas summer heat wave soon!

Now that school has started, and the vacationing is over, it’s time to get out the “to-do list” and focus on prepping for fall. It’s a great time to get the ball rolling on that outdoor space or landscaping project. But as you do, remember to protect yourself by keeping an eye out for quality. Ensure the estimates you are entertaining are going to be able to deliver on what’s promised and not drag you through a long list of change orders and weeks
of frustration!

As a contractor, it’s our job to establish ourselves in the community, build a solid reference list, and give you a level of comfort moving forward with anything we do. Make us work for it – look through the initial pricing and into the company behind it, go through the details in comparison to the finished product you’re being promised, check references, look at some jobs, and speak to your neighbors.

Make sure your contractor has an anchor in the community or gives back in some way. The only way to make our community better is to SUPPORT THOSE WHO ARE GIVING BACK TO IT! In our area, there are a ton of talented people who have built great businesses on being creative, building relationships, and doing things the right way the first time.

3 things to remember when hiring a contractor:

  1. Ask to meet with the job foreman, can you take me to a project he is managing?
  2. What is your payment schedule?
  3. Are you insured and registered here in our city?
