When it comes time to install new countertops in your kitchen or bathroom, it is important that you take some time to find the right countertop installation company to partner with in your area. It isn’t enough to simply go with the first company you see advertised online, as your countertops need to be expertly handled and installed in order to ensure that they look right and are structurally sound for many years to come. Yet, how will you know when you’ve found the right countertop installer? Here are a few things that you should look for when choosing a countertop installer in your area.
Make Sure They’re Using High-Quality Products
While we all want to find the best deal possible for our money, you should be wary of an installer who advertises rates significantly lower than other quotes that you have been getting, as there may be a reason why their prices are so low. For instance, such installers may be using lower quality products, such as stone countertops that have unattractive blotches or pitting. This is also why it is critical that, should you choose to go with a stone countertop, that you request to see the slab before you buy it to make sure that it is up to your standards.
Ask to See Their Previous Work
A great way to get a better idea of the quality of an installer’s work and the products they work with would be to see examples of recent jobs that they have completed. Don’t be afraid to ask to see examples of a countertop installer’s previous work when getting estimates, as they will likely be expecting this question and will have pictures ready from recent installations that they have done.
Check For The Proper Credentials
Of course, anytime you will be having someone work on your home, it is important that you check to make sure that they have the proper credentials including the proper licensing and insurance. Countertop installers work with heavy materials and potentially dangerous tools, and if they are not licensed you may find yourself liable should the installer injure themselves on your property. It is then important to protect yourself by first checking to see if an installer you are considering working with is properly insured.
