When choosing the right Wichita concrete contractors, it is much the same as choosing any other type of contractor for your home or business. You should always look for a company that you feel like you can work with on a personality level first and foremost. A professional Wichita concrete contractor should make you feel comfortable at all times, whether you are asking questions or explaining what you want from their service.
Beyond that, there are several other things you should do when you are looking for a concrete professional:
- Get a few estimates
We recommend that you get about 3 estimates. Any more than that will probably just make your decision more confusing. Getting 3 different estimates will give you a good idea about how reasonable each company’s rates are. You will also see pretty quickly if one company among the estimates you get is trying to overcharge you or sell you something that you really don’t need.
You should be able to get estimates without having to pay for them. Clark’s Concrete always provides free estimates so that Wichita residents can make a fair decision about their concrete needs.
- Ask for references
Make sure that the references you get are local and they had similar services as the ones you are needing. Again, 2 or 3 should be plenty. And don’t be afraid to call them up. Ask specific questions about the professionalism of the crew, how long it took them to complete the job, and their satisfaction with the work that was done.
References are one of the best ways to find out about a company because there is no pressure from the company. It’s just you and another customer involved in the conversation. Clark’s Concrete wants to be your Wichita concrete contractor, so we’ll always provide you with references.
- Read the estimate or contract word for word
Make sure that the estimate you get is comprehensive. If any permits are needed, you should know who is responsible for paying for those. Labor and all materials should be included in the estimate as well. Contracts will usually state which party, you or the company, is responsible for damages or accidents that occur during the course of the job.
Clark’s Concrete will prepare an estimate or contract and give you plenty of time to go over it. We’ll even discuss it with you if there are parts that you want to have clarified.
- Be cautious of a company that expects you to pay upfront
A company that does good work won’t be too anxious to get all the money right away. You might be expected to pay a deposit, but more than likely, the company will either set you up on a payment plan, or you will be expected to pay the final costs after the work is completed to your satisfaction.
Clark’s Concrete will not ask you to pay for services before they are rendered, although if you want to pay all at once, you’re more than welcome to.
We’ll work with you any way we can to become your Wichita concrete contractor!
