Tips on Finding the Right Professional Installer

There are a few factors to consider when choosing a professional driveway or patio installer. If you are not careful your patio or driveway may end up as a duff job and you will have to call in another professional landscaper to fix the problem costing you more money than necessary.

Below are a few tips on finding the right professional driveway or patio installer:

  1. Plan Early, Book for Later - Don't be suprised if you can't get your driveway booked in straight away, reputable installers are high on demand and require plenty of notice. Be cautious towards installers who can 'start work tomorow'.
  2. Always Get More than One Written Quotation - Verbal quotes are likely to be forgotten so make sure you get all your quotes written down for you. Obtain atleast three different quotes and compare them so that they are on a 'like for like' basis. Quotes should be written on headed paper with an address and telephone number, not just a mobile number.
  3. You Get What You Pay For - Don’t decide purely on price, choose the contractor that you feel best suits your needs, it may be the difference between a good job and an outstanding one.
  4. Make Sure Everything is Clear - When you accept a quote always request written confirmation detailing what the contractor has agreed to carry out for the price. This avoids misunderstandings.
  5. Select the Best Product for the Job - The last thing you want to pay for is a driveway or patio that wears and tears easliy. Research which type of patio or driveway materials are best suited for your needs in terms of durability as well as looks and design.
