Questions to Ask a Landscape Contractor

What to Ask Your Landscape Contractor So Nothing Goes Wrong

There are questions you can ask a landscape contractor to avoid disaster from striking.

It shouldn’t be a pain getting professional help with your landscape. You should have the ability to find a landscape contractor to make your visions a reality with little to no trouble. However, there are many contractors who are untrustworthy and are capable of making your experience with them a nightmare. You don’t need that kind of frustration on your plate, and fortunately, there are questions you can ask a landscape contractor to avoid disaster from striking.

Can You Show a Portfolio of Your Past Work?

Your landscape contractor should have no issue with providing a portfolio of the work they’ve done for other clients. Keep tab on the quality of the photos they show you. High-quality images are indicative of a company that prides themselves in the work they do. Companies that pride themselves in the work they do will make great strides to make sure you are their next satisfied customer.

What Qualifications and Certifications Does Your Company Have?

Price is one of the first factors you may consider when looking into a landscape contractor. But choosing a contractor based on price alone is a mistake. Make sure the contractor you hire has the necessary training and certifications to prove they can get the job done right. By getting a properly-trained company to work on your landscape, you avoid the potential problems that could otherwise occur if you hire an inexperienced company, even if you end up paying more money initially.

Are You Fully Bonded, Licensed and Insured?

This is easily one of the most important things to ask a landscape contractor. While you should always hope for no accidents during your project, you can’t rule out the possibility that they can occur. Without insurance from your landscape contractor, you can be held liable for any accidents that take place on your property. Because of this, you could have to pay more money than you originally planned.

Can You Offer a Warranty of Guarantee on the Labor and Products Used

Warranties and guarantees are commonplace across landscape contractors, especially those who have solid reputations. Warranties and guarantees will vary between each company, so you’ll need to clarify what is being covered and how long that coverage will last. Any company that isn’t willing to offer you a warranty for their work is not going to be worth your time. If they don’t trust themselves enough to provide quality work, why should you trust them?
