Things to Look for in a Sydney Plasterer Before Hiring One
May 26, 2016
It’s not uncommon for homeowners to undertake plastering as a DIY task. While it may look easy, it’s best to hire a professional for the job. If you are looking for a Sydney Plasterer you will find that there are scores of companies to choose from. While that’s good thing, it makes the job of choosing the right one even more difficult. When you check, it seems like all the companies offer similar services and this can add to the confusion in your mind. Here are a few tips that will help you choose the right professional:
- Experience and reputation– It’s important that you look for a professional with experience in the field. Though that isn’t always an indication of a person’s skills and reliability, it will give you a fair idea about whether the person would be able to handle the job. This is why you should also check the reputation of the company. It’s not difficult to find reviews or testimonials online and you can check the company’s social media profile to understand what customers are saying about the business. This will give you a good idea about the company’s standing.
- Licensed contractor– The person you hire for the job should have a valid license and someone who is on the level should be willing to show you proof of it. If the Sydney Plasterer hesitates to do so, that should be a red flag for you and it’s not the person you should hire.
- Workmanship guarantee– This is another important aspect. Only a credible and well-established company will guarantee their work. They will also maintain timelines and ensure that the work is carried out on time. Most licensed and insured contractors will guarantee their work.
- Cost– Ideally, you should get quotes from a few different companies before you finalise on one. It’s best not to choose the contractor with the lowest quote as they might just cut corners in their work; and that would impact the quality and integrity of the structure. Contrastingly, the one with the highest quote may not always do an excellent job either. This is why the cost aspect is also almost always tied with the experience and reputation factors. Its only when all these fall in place that you know you have the right contractor for the job.
Always hire a professional Sydney Plasterer for the job
One more important thing is that it’s not a good idea to opt for a handyman to tackle this job for you. Over the years, in addition to new plaster installations, we have also received a number of calls where customers have wanted their plaster installation fixed. This issue arises because property owners sometimes get gyprock installation done from handymen, but these professionals don’t really have the in-depth knowledge and skill that a professional Sydney Plasterer would have. It’s why their work has a lot of imperfections and we are then called in to fix up the plastering. The best way to avoid all the hassle and expense is to hire a professional company that will provide reliable and expert solutions.
