Top Questions to Ask Your Ceiling Contractor
Whether you’re building, renovating or require repairs on your ceiling, you want excellent services and a quality finish so that your ceiling will stand the test of time as well as look great. That’s why it’s important to know which ceiling contractors you can trust.
When searching for a ceiling contractor for your residential or commercial project, make sure you ask them the following questions.
What does the quote include?
There’s nothing worse than getting hit with hidden fees after the job is done. Ensure you know exactly what you’re paying for by asking your ceiling contractor what their quote includes. At Heron Ceilings, we provide comprehensive quotes with no surprise prices so that you know what you’re paying for from the beginning.
What type of ceiling system are you proposing?
Make sure you’re given all the information you need to make an informed decision about your roof. At Heron Ceilings, you’ll receive honest and trustworthy advice from ceiling specialists, including a clear outline of the ideal solutions for your ceiling and any alternative options that are possible. We endeavour to support you with all the information you need to make an informed decision that’s right for you.
Is it better to repair or replace my ceiling?
If your ceiling has suffered damage it can be hard to tell if repairs or complete replacement is required. Ask your ceiling contractor what they think. In some cases repairing the ceiling is enough to restore its structural integrity. However, if the damage is severe, you may be better off replacing the ceiling.
What type of materials do you use?
If you want to know that you’re getting quality services, it’s important to ask about the materials your contractor uses. Cheap and nasty materials and poor application can result in expensive and bothersome issues later on. At Heron Ceilings, we only use quality materials and deliver the highest standard application to help preserve your ceiling for years to come.
Are cornices included?
Often overlooked, cornices are an important ceiling component. If the work on your ceiling requires new or replacement cornices, be sure to bring this up with your ceiling contractor. There are several types of ceiling junctions and cornices to suit a range of styles and budgets. Not sure what you want? Ask the team at Heron Ceilings and we’d be happy to show you your options.
Do you have insurance?
If an uninsured worker gets hurt on your property, you’ll likely be responsible for paying their medical expenses. Also, if any damage occurs to your property, you may have to cover the costs of repair yourself. That’s why it’s so important to ask ceiling contractors to prove that they have adequate insurance cover.
Do you warrant your work?
Ask the contractor if their work is warranted as well as the materials they have used. Depending on the type of work carried out, you should expect at least 2 years warranty on their work. If you receive a warranty, always keep a copy that you can refer back to if needed.
