A deck is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and your home just a little bit more each year. With a customized deck, your space can be anything from a place to garden or a place to host amazing parties! If you are interested in improving the exterior of your home as well as the overall value, a deck is a great way to do so. However, your deck will only be as good as the deck construction that you’re able to get from your contractor. When you are looking for contractors to do your deck construction, here are a few questions to ask to ensure that you have a quality contractor.
- Can I see some examples of your work? Great deck construction should be showcased or cataloged. If your contractor doesn’t want to show you any previous examples of their deck construction, then you are fine to question if you want to continue with blind faith in their experience.
- How long have you been in this line of work? Experience is a big deal in any business, but especially in any kind of contracting work. You want all the kinks in their deck construction portion of their business before they ever work with your deck.
- How often do your estimates match your final prices? A crucial part of any experienced business is their ability to glean from experience how much things will cost and the materials that you’ll need. This question can help you filter out the experienced and honest contractors from the ones that low-ball their offer to get the job, and then add on materials, fees, and services, driving up the original price.
