Selecting A Painting Contractor
No matter how it is done, a HVAC Contractor in South padre island TX project is going to be an inconvenience in one way or another. And the longer it takes to complete the work, the more the intrusion there will be on normal activity within the facility being upgraded. While a dollar amount can be agreed upon, before beginning the project, that amount does not include the indirect costs associated with project delays.
Some of the causes of project delays include:
– Contractor does not arrive on schedule
– Required products/supplies are not available
– Contractor does not have sufficient personnel to make the schedule
– Contractor does not have equipment for greatest efficiency
Whether the foregoing become issues or not, depends on the contractor(s) performance. The purpose of this article is to describe a means of avoiding delays through a careful selective process in the naming a painting contractor and the same approach would be appropriate for other skills as well.
The Process Begins with References
The first step is to gather a number of contractor references, at least three. And the best source is the product suppliers. The local paint dealer sells paint to the contractors in the area and they know who is who. They know who pays there bills on time. They know who has problems applying products properly and following the manufacturer’s recommended application procedures. They know which ones take pride in their work and in general, run a professional operation.
And most importantly, they know which contractors have been around long enough to have encountered most issues and have learned how to deal with them. As an example, a contractor may be very good at interior trim work and surfaces but know very little about treating outdoor decks or concrete slabs.
