Things To Consider When Hiring A Power Washing Company
With any home improvement project it makes sense to do your research. Keeping the exterior of your home and roof clean may seem simple but making the wrong choice in a contractor could be detrimental.
There are many "power washing companies" but how do you pick the one that is right for you? Of course price is always a factor. But with any project it is not always best to go with the lowest bidder. Get at least 3 estimates and then compare the prices as the price alone will reveal lots of good information. As a rule the median price most likely will be the best choice but that is not always the case and many factors should be considered. If the prices are all similar then you have to take other things into consideration. How quick did they get the price to you? Did you like the estimator and did they offer good answers to your questions? Were they clean and professional? Research the reputation of the company by taking a few minutes on the internet.
Are they easy to find? Do they have a website and if so is it well done? Do they have testimonials and pictures of their actual work (not stock photos)? How long have they REALLY been in business? Sometimes a power washing company will claim they have 15 years experience because on some level they have used a power washer for that long. But a professional company will be associated with trade organizations and have a track record of happy customers Check Angie's list and other reputable websites that rate contractors. There are so many easy ways to get a quick view of the company you are hiring. But the bottom line is, are they a professional licensed company or are they a guy who bought a power washer at the home improvement store? A professional company will be able to answer your questions effectively. They will show up and provide professional written estimates and most importantly they should be able to prove that they have insurance, workman's compensation, business license, and certification that the company is professionally trained and knows what they are doing.
When performed correctly, a professional power washing company will help preserve and enhance the value of your home and roof. Proper maintenance, house washing, roof cleaning, gutter cleaning and deck washing will add years to the surfaces of your home. Next time your home and roof need to be cleaned consider hiring a professional. Estimates are usually free and hiring a professional will save time and money.
