Before hiring any contractor make sure they are licensed and bonded, or you can’t be sure the work will be done to code. Any defects will probably not be repaired since the unlicensed contractor will likely not have insurance to cover the cost. Here are three tips to help you through the process of finding the right licensed welding contractor.
1. Get multiple cost estimate quotes.
The rule of thumb is three quotes for comparison purposes. Nowadays you can arm yourself with a ballpark figure from the internet before you even start making real inquiries. Once you find a contractor you want to work with, ask for an itemized estimate so you can see exactly what you are paying for in terms of labor and material or parts.
2. Ask for details on the contractor and the job.
A welding contractor should tell you how long it will take to do the job, as well as when can they start work. You should also ask them about their policies regarding interruptions due to weather or other problems. Ask about their level of experience, and how long they have been in business. It is also helpful to ask them to provide you with references.
3. What are the guarantees?
Ask the contractor how they handle any objections or complaints. Can they guarantee to fix any problem within a certain time frame?
