How to Find a Great Contractor

December 4, 2013 Patio Design

SONY DSCHiring a contractor can be a scary and intimidating decision. How can you know you’re making the best choice before you sign on the dotted line?

When it comes to finding a great contractor, the bottom line comes down to trust.

Here are three marks of a trustworthy contractor:

Warranty A contractor who backs up his work with a good, strong warranty gives you reason to trust him. When a contractor has been in business for a while and continues to offer this assurance on his work and materials, you can have confidence that the job will be done well.

Fixed Pricing Some surprises are good. Surprises in price are not. A contractor who gives you an exact quote at the onset of a contract proves that he has enough experience to account for all aspects of a project. Approaching pricing in this way also makes the contractor ultimately responsible for any mistakes or unforeseen costs. A contractor who is willing to be subject to this level of accountability on the bottom line is going to be as accurate as he is able. No surprises, period.

3-D Renderings Knowing what your finished project is expected to look like on your home brings confidence in the product you are purchasing. The contractor who provides what-you-see-is-what-you-get 3-D renderings, when applicable, eliminates doubts about the aesthetics of a project. You can see that your project designer is able to bring your dream project to life before any work has begun.

You can rest assured that you have found a great contractor, when he places such a high value on trust that he chooses to be characterized by these marks!

Our Customers Love Us

Texas Custom Patios was a pleasure to work with from first call to final detail on our patio cover and flooring. Everyone we worked with — office personnel on scheduling, crews on fast and quality work, and Steven helping with design ideas and scheduling and issue resolution — were all what contracting should be. We had been looking at our odd roofline, chimney location and numerous angles for over 10 years and received numerous quotes and estimates that just didn’t work or the contractors flatly said they couldn’t do what we were looking for . . . until Steven and TCP arrived and did exactly what we wanted (and more) on time, on budget, no hassle. We love our new space and receive many compliments on the look and functionality of the space and design. We would love to have TCP and Steven do another project for us and we recommend them to anyone.
