Frequently Asked Questions
Define the scope of the project?
Although a professional will always be available to assist you throughout the project, setting and understanding the requirements and estimates of the project will help evaluate the results and performance of your chosen project.
Do I need to be involved in the project?
It’s a personal choice. Few home owners love doing things on their own while few of them prefer a professional. So if you have time and skills to do some of the work, that would surely be great but if not, the service professionals are always there for help.
What if I want to do some parts of the project myself?
DIY (Do It Yourself) component always exists for tasks like painting and plumbing. Read our DIY blogs to get some ideas and insights.
Are the service professionals Licensed, Bonded and Insured?
Before finalising any project you should feel encouraged to ask your pros about their legal authentication. This would avoid any further misconceptions.
Do the pros warranty their work? Also what is the scope of maintenance programs and incentives?
As a client it becomes your right to get all project dealings done on papers so you can refer back later. The time limitation of project parts and equipment should also be clearly mentioned.
Before hiring a professional and purchasing any home equipment or appliance, make sure their company provides you with pricing incentives or maintenance services. Usually home appliance companies offer special discounts so as to attract the customers.
What preparations do I need to do for the project?
Depending on the scale and type of the project, it’s preferable to have proper risk assessment and be well prepared with all legal permissions prior to the conduction of the project.
How much will the project cost?
Prior budget planning needs to be done. Streamline all the requirements and other line items clearly. According to the budget and time availability, discuss the possible options and alternatives for the project.
Are any permits required for the project?
As per your project requirement, ask your service professional about all permits that are needed. Make sure to have all the permits prior to the project as this is the responsibility of the home owner.
Enquire about the Pro’s previous projects?
Before hiring any service provider, research about their previous work. Also look at the client ratings for that specific professional in order to analyse client satisfaction.
