Masonry is defined as the building of structures from individual units (such as bricks or stones) typically laid in and bound together by mortar. If you have some masonry work that needs to be done at your place in the Poconos, such as stone chimney repairs, you’re probably looking to hire a professional masonry contractor. How can you find the right one for your job?
First, it’s important to know what you want to accomplish. That way you can share this info with a potential contractor. Do a little research so you know some key terms masonry contractors use. You want to express yourself to the contractor clearly and confidently if you can– and ask questions, too.
Look for Recommendations
Next, it’s time to not only ask friends and family for recommendations, to see who they used in the past and whether or not they were satisfied, but also do some background checking. Thanks to the Internet, you can learn a lot about area companies and their workers. There are online reviews from real people that will tell you what people have thought of certain contractors and whether they’d hire them again– or not.
Thirdly, look at several area masonry contractor websites and see if they offer testimonials and/or references. You can also call different companies and see how they handle talking on the phone with you; If they never answer or don’t get back to you quickly, you might not want to consider them.
Look for the Right Match
Finally, when looking for the right masonry contractor for your project, schedule an appointment with the one or two you think you’ll use. Meet them in person and see what they offer and if you think they’d be a good match for your job. When you decide who to work with, draw up a detailed contract.
