Any time you hire an awning contractor, it can be intimidating. Not all contractors are worthy of your trust, meaning you should conduct research to make sure the contractor you hire is reliable. Fortunately, there are means of making the hiring process easier. Here are three questions you should ask before you decide on an awning contractor to hire.
Will You Install An Awning If I Buy It From Another Shop?
If you had already gone ahead and purchased an awning, that doesn’t necessarily mean an awning contractor won’t be willing to install it for you. Sometimes, the price of the installation service will vary when you purchase your awning elsewhere. So it would be a good idea to inquire if the awning contractor you’re considering would be willing to install an awning you’ve purchased elsewhere, and what the price of the installation would be.
What Expenses Are Included In The Estimate?
A breakdown of all of the costs is recommended. While not all companies have an itemized breakdown of all of the expenses, you should be cautious if they don’t. You should carefully examine all of the details that will be factored into the project. The last thing you want is for an unexpected event to come up in which the costs for your installation go up far more than you anticipated. Make sure you know all of the expenses of the installation before you decide on an awning contractor to hire.
What Is The Timeline For Your Installation?
You’ll want your awning installation finished within a certain amount of time. That’s why you should ask your awning contractor how long the installation should take before the project begins. This is especially important if you need your awning installed before an important event or gathering. The last thing you want is for your contractor to delay the completion of your project right before an event that requires your awning. It’s safer to get that timeline ahead of time. While unexpected events can still pop up, your awning contractor should try to factor in such possibilities so that your awning is still built on time.
