Rate this Entry
Whenever you want the job done, you would have expectations that your contractor must meet. You are not an expert in this field and therefore there are many things you may not be able to decipher. A professional basement waterproof contractor knows plenty of things you may not know about and most of these things could frustrate you once the work has begun. Delays here and there, overheads, inability to do some work and such.

Here are the list of some things a contractor would not inform you of therefore, you should have them planted at the back of your mind.

The low bid I gave you was not the final price.

To convince you to sign the contract, the contractor may lower the charges unreasonably. This could mean that they compromise on a few details to get the work done properly. Beware of low bidders who want to secure the project but at a later time, call you up for more money. Others may have to do a shoddy job because the money they settled for cannot hire qualified professionals.

You and I are not envisioning the same result

Be careful when you get a contractor who bids low. These guys may cut corners by not only employing cheap labor but also using low-grade materials. Everyone wants the magic of getting the cheapest contractor who is going to give quality at the shortest time possible. This is an unrealistic scenario. It is important for you not to be swallowed by the low bids. If you want quality work, you must be ready to part with some good money- a company could seem a bit more expensive than the competition but looking at the track record, the potential contractor should be best suited to your needs and expectations. Discuss at length of the details regarding the job and ask as many questions about quality as possible. Again, get a written commitment from the service provider on quality and Turnaround Time (TAT).

If you show me respect, Iíll do the job smoothly

Be firm but reasonable when dealing with them for a smooth relationship and quality work.
