When planning to install a fireplace to your home, see to it that you are hiring a qualified professional. Keep in mind that only professional fireplace installers can do this. If you choose an amateur to do it, you are putting the safety of your family and home at risk. So before you hire your potential fireplace installer, I highly recommend that you do your research on him.
In this article, allow me to share with you some factors that you must first take into consideration when looking for a fireplace installer.
1. Always look for their license.
To avoid dealing with any legal problems in the future, stay away from unlicensed fireplace installers. Even if the price for their services is very low, taking a risk on them is not worth it at all. Before you reach an agreement with your potential fireplace installer, don’t be shy to request for his license and other credentials. This will also serve as proof that he is a qualified expert and that he is capable of providing quality work.
2. Having a written contract is a must.
If you want to be satisfied with the end result of your fireplace installer’s work, it is important that he has a clear understanding on what you really want. Explain to him what you really want your fireplace to look like. Make sure you talk about it’s dimensions, the materials to be used, the color, etc. Make sure that you request for a written contract. Once you do, do not forget to include your terms of payment.
3. Visit the website of your fireplace installer.
Now that we are already in the 21st century, even fireplace installers have their own websites you can visit 24/7. To learn more about his background, training, and experience, just give his website a visit. If you are looking for his company address, price rates, or contact details, you may also refer to his website.
While you are learning more about him, it is advisable that you click on his portfolio. This is where he posts samples of his work. For as long as you are impressed with the samples of his work, you can finally relax knowing you are hiring the right professional.
