Unfortunately, unlike other home repairs, a driveway or carpark isn’t a job that can be done DIY or with the help from friends and family. The average person also does not know a lot about driveway surfaces, bitumen, asphalt or what exactly they need when they start to consider a driveway repair or replacement.
We’ve put together a list of some important questions or things to consider when choosing a company to carry out your driveway or carpark repairs.
Recommendation – Referrals are often the best and most trusted source of finding the right company to work with. If you’ve recently had a neighbour or friend has a driveway installed, ask them important questions like who installed it and what was their experience like. It’s okay to ask for more than one recommendation as this will help you narrow down the company you want to work with.
Experience – Look for a company that has been in the industry for a while. This means that they have worked on multiple projects across different sectors from residential to commercial. Having experience will guarantee that they have the knowledge and experience to install the right product for you.
Personal Interaction – If you request a quote and you do not feel comfortable or feel that the person providing you with the quote is professional then this is often a big warning sign that you may not have a positive experience working with them throughout the duration of the project.
Knowledge – Don’t be afraid to ask the company who is giving you a quote questions about the products and techniques they use. Asking important questions and getting answers will allow you to gauge how knowledgeable the company is in their field. Questions to ask could include how long they have been in the business, what products or suppliers they use, what their turnaround time on a job may be or anything else that pops into your head.
