Top 5 Things to Check when Hiring a Stucco Contractor

by Bonnie Phillips on Jul 11, 2020

Stucco is easy to maintain, durable, and long-lasting; but all of this is possible only if the right stucco contractor is hired. So, in regards to the same, let’s discuss the top five things to keep in mind while hiring a stucco contractor.

Evaluation

The work of the contractor has to be evaluated and he needs to have enough experience with the exterior works of the house. So, a proper evaluation of the stucco contractor and his works are a must. Secondly, checking their online review is a must as it will give you an insight into their past works. This also becomes important as you can study your requirements, evaluate their work, and then decide which contractor you want to go with.

Know Your Products

Precise knowledge about stucco products is a great way to get the right stucco repair or siding for your house. Once you know the difference between cheap and standard products you can easily gain the proper perspective of whom to hire and what products to use, no matter what they recommend.

In fact, their recommendations will determine whether you should hire them or not. Also, don’t forget to ask the required number of questions relevant to their proposal. This will help you get enough knowledge about the contractors, their works, and the products they have been using.

Discuss the payments beforehand

This is a very sensitive matter hence you should read all the documents properly especially the words in the fine print. Generally, the payment is done in three steps, advance, mid-work, and final payment. The initial payment is not a big amount but a moderate advance that covers the initial material and labor costs.

Also, scrutinize the work as it progresses, so that you can gauge the quality of work before it's too late. Even before the final payment, make thorough checks of the work done. The payment checks should always be made in the company’s name and not in the name of an individual.

Check Licenses and Insurance

This is really important as it determines the authenticity of the stucco company. Checking the license number, and all other documentation is highly important.

Take proper information on the insurance that the contractor provides post and during the work. The insurance should be cross verified with the insurance companies for the current status. Nevertheless, also take into account the repairs and the losses that are covered.

Don't haste and do check the weather

Yes, if a contractor is making haste in signing the contract, take it as a no sign. Think patiently, go through the above points, settle down everything on the checklist, and then go ahead with signing the contract. Even if it requires a rework or some kind of stucco repairs, never haste in hiring a contractor. At the same time, have a rain check done on the weather, as it equally plays an important role in executing stucco projects.

To conclude,

Hire only an experienced stucco contractor, so as you could have the best of the best suggestions on getting your stucco right. And, as it is a work that involves technical procedures, time, and money; make decisions as patiently as you can.
