No matter what the investment is, there are always going to be at least a few variables to keep in mind. In an industry filled with it’s fair share of both trusted contractors and scam artists, it’s critical to make the correct decision from the start. A beautiful outdoor living space is something capable of being the perfect spot for making long-lasting family memories, hanging out with friends, and even increasing the value of your home! To give you a quick idea of what you should be looking out for when choosing the right guy for your job, here’s a few tips.
With all the information available online, there’s no reason why you should be throwing darts when choosing a contractor. The in-person sales pitch is just a fraction of the total process. Anyone can talk a big game, but it’s meaningless unless they have some substance to back it up. One thing you’ll realize quick is if a contractor doesn’t have much of an online presence, chances are their work isn’t much to brag about either. In today’s market, the trusted contractors are going to have a professional-looking website, consistent activity on social media, and at least a handful of positive reviews. Each of these areas can reveal a lot about how committed they are to delivering a quality product time-after-time.
As fellow homeowners, we get it. If you’re going to invest thousands of dollars into a backyard makeover, you want it done as soon as possible. However, at the same time, you should be reminding yourself that you want it done RIGHT (and more importantly, done right the first time!). Otherwise, the consequence typically involves paying the trusted contractor (who you should’ve chose originally) just as much, if not more, to replace the shoddy work. After doing our fair share of market research, it’s pretty clear there’s a distinct difference between above-average and below-average contractors. The trusted ones are typically going to have wait lists of 2-3 months, while the lackluster options will be ready to get started tomorrow.
Any outdoor living project is a serious investment. You want to make sure your project is done to the finest of standards, while also getting a fair deal on the total price. After working with over 3,500 Kansas City homeowners, we’ve built a culture here at Hinkle Hardscapes focused on emphasizing trust and proving we aren’t in business to simply make a quick buck. Chances are, if you receive multiple bids for your project, we’re not going to be the cheapest option. This can be due to a number of reasons, but one, in particular, is the fact that we ensure we’re creating a quality product each and every time. Each element is going to be installed by one of our expert craftsmen utilizing reliable materials. We don’t like leaving any job unless we’re 100% sure the homeowner will immediately fall in love with their new space!
