Some professionals you would call for maintenance, repairs, or upgrades to your home provide a service you know about. Others may be more foreign to you, and that means you have plenty of questions for them before you feel confident about proceeding. When it comes to needing waterproofing or suspecting that you do, you will undoubtedly have several questions for your waterproofing company. Here are a few that you should be sure to ask:
- Why do I need a waterproofing company? Remember when you asked “Why?” to your parents, and they’d respond, “Because I said so!”? Well, that isn’t the response you want from your waterproofing company. You have a right to know what the problem is and how they plan to correct it.
- What different solutions do you offer? The waterproofing company will likely quote you for the process they feel will best resolve the problem. Don’t hesitate to ask if there are other options, particularly if the quote exceeds your budget. It may not be wise to go another route, but you should have all the information you need to make an informed decision.
- What will the waterproofing project be like? You need to know if your home or yard will be affected by the work they plan to do and how much your daily activities could be disrupted during the process. You also want to know if you’ll need another company to restore drywall, flooring, or landscaping.
The typical questions, such as what the quote is and what it includes, whether licensed and insured, and how much experience they have are also good to ask the waterproofing company. Your goal is to have no unanswered questions, so you feel comfortable with the company and the process.
