Plasterers in Kent – How to find a good one!

Friday, November 30, 2012

If you’re looking for a plasterer in the Kent area  to work on a project then you should find this article of great interest. The best way of ensuring a project goes smoothly is to know the exact requirements of the job you have and know the right questions to ask. It can seem like a daunting task to find someone who will be guaranteed to complete the job satisfactorily and whilst there are no guarantees of this happening, there’s a much better chance of it if you are well informed about the subject.

Questions to Ask

When you hire a plasterer it’s important that you find someone who is confident and experienced in what they’re doing. Unfortunately plastering does seem to attract some cowboys who will simply take any job simply because they can. The best way to avoid hiring such a person is to have some questions ready for them. The following are all useful questions to ask –

1)      How long will the job take to complete? It’s always useful to know how long the job will take to finish. For smaller jobs they’re usually able to completed same day. If more extensive work is needed, such as plastering the exterior of your house then you should ask for an estimated completion time.

2)      How much it will cost? – This is an obvious question but it will probably be the biggest determining factor on which plasterer you choose. It can be tempting to simply go for the person who offers you the lowest price but this is rarely a good idea. Ideally you will get an idea for what the job should cost by asking around or getting quotes online. This way you’ll know reasonable the prices you’re being quoted are.

3)      What days are you available to work? It might be the case that you want to be there when the work is carried out so you can keep an eye on things. If this is the case then you should find out when the plasterer is available so you can match schedules.

You can either look online for plasterers or in a local business directory. It’s really down to personal preference which you prefer to do but looking online does have its advantages. For example you can usually get a better impression of the company if you’re able to see their website as it gives you a chance to see work they’ve completed and hopefully also some testimonials and details about their work history.
