Three Reasons to Hire Professional Concrete Contractors—Even for Small Jobs
At Donald Rushing Construction Company, we sometimes hear builders and remodelers say, “I don’t need to hire a concrete contractor. It’s just a small job.” They seem to believe that professional concrete contractors are only for major work, and that something like laying down a small foundation is a job that any contractor can do.
It’s not that simple. There are many reasons one should to hire a concrete professional for jobs of all sizes. A planned and properly poured concrete project will provide utility for years, while a poorly executed job can quickly become a major liability because of cracking, crumbling and insufficient curing.
Here are Three Reasons Why Hiring Concrete Contractors Is a Good Idea
1. They know the right mix for the right job.
There are many types concrete mixes out there and each one offers slightly different benefits and drawbacks. A professional concrete contractor has the experience to know which mix to use.
What’s the local humidity like? What sort of ground will be under the slab? What sort of weight will be placed on the slab? These are just a few of the many questions that determine the optimal concrete mix. The wrong pour maylead to wasted money and, worse, safety issues.
2. They have the right tools for the job.
There is more to mixing and pouring concrete than most people think. Doing it right requires precision and the right tools—from the initial mixing to the final grading. A professional contractor has the tools and experience to deliver that precision. Most builders and remodelers do not, which can lead to problems down the road.
3. Guarantees on the work done.
When you hire a professional to do concrete work for you, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that a firm has done the work, one that offers specific performance guarantees. Most builders and remodelers can’t do that. A professional concrete contractor is licensed, bonded, and insured, which in turn means you(and your builder or remodeler) are protected, both during the job and with warranties afterward.
