Waterproofing your home is a great idea because it helps to keep moisture out. Water damage can lead to home foundation problems and if they aren’t address, your walls could be at risk of collapsing. You want the best quality when it comes to waterproofing, so here are four questions to ask before hiring a waterproofing contractor.
Are You Licensed/Insured?
The first question you want to ask is if the contractor is licensed. If they are not, you should immediately cross them off of your list. An unlicensed contractor is not legally qualified to do the job, so you have no way of knowing if their work will be quality or not. In addition to this, you want them to have insurance as well so that if anything goes wrong, the costs of damage repair doesn’t fall on you.
How Long Have You Been In Business?
Though someone who just started their waterproofing company could be more skilled than someone that’s been in business for years, it is good to know that your waterproofing contractor has a lot of experience. This gives you more security and peace of mind knowing that they have been waterproofing for years rather than you being the first home they’ve ever waterproofed.
Do You Have References?
It is good to ask the contractor for references because you want to see the work they’ve done previously. This will allow you to judge for yourself the quality of their work and also see if they can meet your specific needs. You can also look for reviews online from past customers because they are likely to give an honest opinion about their experience.
Do You Have A Warranty?
You want to look for a waterproofing contractor that has a decent warranty. This means that they are confident in their work and are guaranteeing you that it will last for a set number of years. If anything does happen within that time, you don’t have to worry about re-paying to fix it because the warranty will cover it.
