HELPFUL HINTS:

TIPS YOU SHOULD REMEMBER WHEN CHOOSING A CONTRACTOR FOR ANY JOB:

  1. CONSIDER HOW MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE THE CONTRACTOR HAS, NOT JUST HOW MANY YEARS THAT THEIR COMPANY HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS.
  2. ALWAYS ASK FOR REFERENCES. THEY ARE A GREAT SOURCE TO FIND OUT HOW PAST CLIENTS FEEL ABOUT THE CONTRACTOR. GO SEE SOME OF THEIR COMPLETED WORK. DON’T GET RUSHED INTO A CONTRACTOR. TAKE YOUR TIME. IF YOU ARE BEING RUSHED CHANCES ARE THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO CHECK THEM OUT AND THAT IS NOT IN YOUR BEST INTEREST.
  3. BE SURE THE ARE FULLY LICENSED AND INSURED. (State of Mich. 517-373-1820 License Division.)
  4. CHECK WITH THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU (BBB reliability reports hot line 248-223-9400).

COMMON MISTAKES:

  1. DON’T MAKE YOUR DECISION ON THE PRICE ALONE. IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET THE BEST JOB FOR THE CHEAPEST PRICE. A CHEAP PRICE MAY MEAN CHEAP MATERIALS.
  2. BE SURE YOUR CONTRACTOR UNDERSTANDS THAT YOU WANT A PROPER BASE.
  3. COMPARE EACH BID THAT YOU RECEIVE. IF SOMEONE HAS A LOWER PRICE, THEY MAY JUST BE GIVING YOU LESS OF THE PRODUCT.
  4. NEVER GO WITH A CONTRACTOR THAT WANT MONEY BEFORE THE JOB IS COMPLETE.
  5. ALWAYS CHECK WITH THE STATE OF MI. TO BE SURE THE CONTRACTORS LICENSE IS UP TO DATE.
  6. ALWAYS ASK IF THE CONTRACTOR HAS LIABILITY INSURANCE

WHAT MAKES A GOOD JOB:

  1. FOUNDATION IS KEY TO A LONG LASTING JOB. WITHOUT THE PROPER FOUNDATION CONCRETE AND ASPHALT WILL NOT LAST.
  2. FIBER-MESH SHOULD BE USED IN ALL CONCRETE WORK.
  3. A SIX BAG MIX IS THE BEST MIX TO USE WHICH IS 4000 psi.
  4. 21 AA STONE SHOULD BE USED FOR A STRONG BASE.
  5. USE A CONTRACTOR THAT HAS MULTIPLE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.
  6. REMOVAL OF PREVIOUS CONCRETE OR GRASS SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE PRICE.
  7. EXPANSION PAPER SHOULD BE USED ON ALL NECESSARY
