Landscape & Architectural Elements

  Top 3 things to do before before you choose to hire

  a Designer, Contractor, Home Builder or Remodeler:

   1. Ask contractor for References: 

       Ask for a list of references from the contractor whom you plan on hiring.   Any

    professional  should have several recent references.   Obtaining positive feedback from the

    contractors previous clients will give you extra assurance that you are making the right

    decision about    hiring  them.   You could call the references and ask a few simple questions 

    such as: 

        - Were you happy with the craftsmanship & overall quality of work? 

        - Was anything left unfinished or seem unsatisfactory to you? 

        - Did they leave the job site clean during construction and after completion? 

        - Would you recommend the contractor to someone else?

   In conclusion,  if several others  have had positive experiences then the chances are likely  

   you will have a positive experience as well.

   2. View their Portfolio.   A professional Landscape Designer or 

    Contractor will have an extensive photo portfolio to showcase their previously
    completed projects.  When view their portfolio ask yourself:

         - Does their workmanship appear to be constructed well & well designed?

         - Is it aesthetically appealing to look at or just "OK" ? 

         - Are you more impressed with or drawn towards one particular contractor's or      

            designer's portfolio?

    3. Obtain 3 written bids on your project.   Make sure you're comparing apples

    to apples, meaning compare similar specifications and scope of work.  Do not
    automatically accept the lowest bid. Often times a low bidder may perform
    low or poor quality workmanship later to learn you have to replace or rebuild again

    In the long run it may end up costing you more money than if you just had it done right the

    first time.   A lower bidder may also be cutting corners or using inferior building materials or

    construction techniques.   Consider quality and value before making decisions about

    something you will be living  with for a for possibly decades to come.   It may be worth hiring

    a professional who has the expertise,  proven track record and who has a reputation for high

    quality work.
