Drywall installation and repair is a job best left for the pros. It is a very labour intensive technique that is perfected with years of experience. Companies like Glacier Drywall Systems in Calgary will have the knowledge, experience and the proper tools to efficiently install new drywall and ceilings without the hassle and with professional results.
The drywall installer and taper has to be very skilled because any imperfections will be very noticeable in the finished product. That is why it’s so important to hire the right drywall contractor for the job. Here is how to make sure you hire a reputable and skilled drywall contractor for your next home renovation:
Get recommendations from trusted sources.
Ask friends and family if they know of a drywall contractor that has done good work for them in the past. You could also ask other renovation companies that you have worked with and been happy with if they know of any drywall companies you should try contacting.
Don’t put too much faith in online consumer reviews. They are not always accurate and could be completely fake. Some companies will actually pay online reviewers to post a positive review even if they’ve never used that company before. It’s a good idea to look at some review sites, but take it all with a grain of salt. Check accreditation websites like RenovationFind.com to find trusted drywall companies like Glacier Drywall Systems.
Ask lots of questions.
Once you’ve found a drywall company that you want to contact, have a list of questions you want to ask them before hiring them. Ask if they can provide references from other customers, how the job will be done, for tentative start and finish dates and details around the cost. You can also ask if clean up is included in the fee and what would be included in a written contract. This is also a good time to call their references and get some information from their past customers.
Check for a business license and insurance.
There are a lot of ‘home renovators’ out there that are actually operating without a proper business license or insurance. They need a license to conduct business and it’s your legal right to ask if they have one. A licensed company will be familiar with building code requirements and other legalities.
If they can’t provide you with proof of insurance do not hire them! Insurance protects the contractor, but it also protects you if any damages or injuries happen during the renovation or on the job-site. If they don’t have insurance they could file a law-suit against you if there is an accident. You should also ask if they have WCB coverage. Glacier Drywall Systems has all of these things.
Get all the details. In writing.
Once you’ve chosen a drywall contractor, make sure you get all of the project details in a written contract. The contract should include the scope of work, labour costs, building materials and any other foreseen costs that could occur during the project. You should also have an idea of the project’s schedule including the various stages of mudding and taping and when your walls will be ready for paint.
