During the pandemic, people hardly fought for their life to keep themselves sane. With lockdowns being imposed in different areas, people struggle to go back to normal in many aspects of their life. And while they stayed home, they began to realise what’s lacking.

To serve a silver lining during these hard times, Newcastle Driveway and Patio Pro, as part of their ongoing campaign, shows their way of helping other businesses as well to pick up where they left, reassess their goals, and build a business on integrity so that it will thrive no matter what kind of experience they run through.

Tips on choosing the ‘best’ contractor for property owners

Choosing the right contractor for your driveway, patio, or hard landscape is very important for Newcastle Driveway and Patio Pro. Being professionals in the landscape industry, the Newcastle team knows the value of a good reputation. That’s why they lead you in the right direction when choosing a contractor.

1. Know how long the landscape company is operating

Even if they have started way back, where were they during the lost years? A consistent and successful business never wanes unless there are valid reasons: change of management or levelling up. But most family businesses push through and transfer ownership through kinship.

2. Choose a contractor who is connected to a reliable company

If your contractor is a fly by night, chances are that you will be fooled. Bogus contractors are like a thief in the night. So be careful who you are dealing with. Check their credentials, affiliations, certifications, etc.

3. Word of mouth

Do you know that it is more reliable to ask persons of interest when it comes to finding landscape contractors? Referrals are strong points to know where to look at. If your neighbour just had a patio makeover over the past month, it is no sin to ask. If the patio looks fabulous and well made, perhaps your neighbour has found a contractor that is similar to your liking. But don’t forget to ask the rate, too.

4. Look for contractors in the directory

Today, the yellow page is no longer a physical and tangible yellow page but a virtual page. You can find a list of names of landscape builders there. Trustmark is a good point to look for licensed and experienced contractors. It is good to have many choices to compare.

5. Ask the prospective contractor the right questions

Not all questions are appropriate and not all good contractors are the right one. A right contractor is an honest person with a legitimate connection. He belongs to a company with a deep portfolio, extensive projects, reputable work ethics, and a team that leave jobs with no mess behind. In other words, you hit the button when the contractor you’re looking for has all these qualities.
