Are you remodeling your home or office? Maybe you’re planning to rebuild? In any case, it is likely that you will require the help of a demolition contractor at some point throughout your project. As a recognized company with the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association (or, MHCA), we understand what needs to happen and how to make the process flow smoothly for all parties involved.
Not All Contractors are Created Equal
Hiring a contractor is a skill in and of itself. However, our goal is to make your experience simple and efficient, whether you’re an experienced builder or simply a homeowner looking to take things up a notch.
Here things to consider when hiring a demolition contractor:
Compile as Much Information as Possible Before Calling
If you’re a homeowner, you may or may not know a lot about construction or demolition. Either way, it is important that you do your best to provide detailed information to a potential contractor. This way they can give you a more accurate estimate for the job.
Are they a “Green” Contractor
In 2018, there is a lot of attention given to environmental sustainability. Hiring a “Green” contractor can help to ensure that they are sorting and disposing of all materials in the appropriate manner. The fact is, a large percentage of demolition waste can be recycled. However, only some contractors will recycle that waste. Be sure to ask contractors if they offer “green” services.
Do Your Research
Look for information about potential contractors. Look online and read their customer reviews and ratings. A company that has a high rating and positive reviews is more likely to be trustworthy. Look for reviews on Google, Yelp, TrustedPros and even Facebook.
Look for Certifications
Surprisingly, not all companies have all the appropriate certifications and accreditations. Check to see if a company has a positive rating and is accredited by the Better Business Bureau. Try to find out if they are certified by the appropriate safety organizations in their region.
