Tips and Tricks: Choosing the Right Contractor

Choosing the Right Contractor or Landscaper for Your Paving Project

If you’re in the middle of planning how to make your garden in to an
outdoor living space that all the family can enjoy, then remember that laying
paving products is a skilled service. A professional paving contractor or
landscaper can recommend colours, complementary products, suitable laying
patterns and lots more, so it is well worth investing in a reputable one.

When choosing the right contractor, you should take a common-sense approach before making your decision. Ask straightforward questions
and look for some basic reassurances. Here’s our checklist for some helpful
hints on what you should ask before your dream garden project begins:

Paving Contractor/Landscaper Checklist

ü Check how long the company has been laying
paving products.

ü Ask for some recent references of work
undertaken. A reputable contractor will be delighted to show off recent work. Don’t be too embarrassed to make a phone call or call in person to a previous customer – either way, you won’t regret it.

ü Ask for a written quotation before work
commences and make sure you go through it in detail.

ü Ask questions such as if skip hire and jointing
sand is included?

ü Check if the contractor has the appropriate
liability insurance.

ü A reputable contractor will expect their work to
be of the highest standard and to last accordingly. They should have no problem
guaranteeing their work, so ask them to.

Remember, asking the right questions and doing some basic research now will help you with choosing the right contractor who will carry out your garden project to the highest standard and
ensure that your new patio or driveway will be something you can enjoy for many
years to come!
