When there’s an issue with your septic system, you need assistance ASAP. Hurrying the hiring process, however, can lead to shoddy and subpar servicing. With a multitude of contractors out there, it can be tricky knowing which company to choose. To ensure you get the best value for what you pay, it helps tremendously to ask the following septic repair questions as part of the vetting process.
1. Are You Licensed?
This is a hugely integral question to ask a potential technician. It’s essential you’re certain the company or contractor is licensed and/or certified. Licensure means the contractor is officially registered at the municipal or state level to perform the industry-specific service.
2. Who Will Be Doing the Actual Work?
More established septic firms can dispatch multiple contractors who are then assigned tasks based on skill. Talk to the technician who will be performing your repairs. This minimizes any potential confusion or miscommunication once the actual work begins.
3. What’s the Total Cost of Services?
Inquire about the total cost of service; “total” is the keyword here. Be sure the given estimate refers to the totality of rendered services. Sometimes, the contractor may give you a quote, but neglect to mention that it doesn’t include additional fees like parts, warranty, etc.
4. When Is Payment Due?
Here’s a golden rule: a legitimate contractor should never expect full payment prior to project completion. Payment is typically due after the work is fully complete. Contractors, though, may request a portion of payment due upfront with the rest paid after services.
5. Who Is Responsible for Possible Damages?
Does the contract specify who is responsible for footing the cost of cleanup or potential damage to property? A legitimate company should carry insurance so you’re not responsible for damage to your own residence.
