Home > Blog > 5 Questions to Ask Your Deck Contractor Before Hiring

Are you considering having a deck built along your home? Decks make an excellent addition to your home by adding outdoor square footage for you and guests to enjoy. When looking for a deck contractor, there are key questions to ask to help you determine if it’s the right fit.

When looking for a deck contractor

  • Are You Licensed & Insured? – One of the first things you want to ask your prospective deck contractor is if they are licensed and insured. A contractor that is covered gives you the peace of mind that if an unfortunate situation occurs, you will be taken care of.
  • What’s Your Experience Level? – When hiring a deck contractor, you should always ask their experience level. An experienced contractor will give you quality work for a reasonable price in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Can I See Your Portfolio/Past Work? – You should always ask your deck contractor to see their portfolio or past work. Taking a look at their previous projects will give you an idea of what kind of deck they can produce and if they can bring your vision to life.
  • What’s Your Schedule & Lead Time? – If you need your deck completed before a specific date, confirm with your deck contractor what their schedule and lead time is. This will give you a good idea of when they will start and how long it will take.

We hope the answers to these questions will help you determine if your deck contractor is a good fit for you. If you have any questions regarding decks, and the services we provide, please contact us today at Speaks Custom Window & Sunrooms.
