Finding the Best Screened In Porch Contractor
There are a few things to keep in mind about a contractor when looking for a company to do your porch. You want a contractor who is skilled in creating screen enclosures, easy to work with, and offers a reasonable price. Here’s some tips on how just to find that contractor:
- First, get proof that the contractor is licensed and insured.
Any reputable contractor will have these and happily provide you proof! In fact, showing you these documents will likely be part of their routine. Make sure you have verified these before signing any contracts with them.
- Next, check in to their track record.
Ask for references from former clients and get in contact with them. Were they reliable? Has their screen held up? Would they work with them again? Also take a look at online reviews and portfolios of their previous work. All of this should be a testament to the quality of their work.
- Be sure that your contractor is familiar with roof structures and framing, not just decks.
Not all decks have screened in porches, and you need someone who has experience with both. This is because they will need to know how to properly join the porch frame with the house roof.
- Do they work with an electrician?
Building codes will require that you have at least one outlet on your deck, so they will need an electrician no matter what, but many people also choose to add extra lighting and fans on their decks. An electrician is an essential partner for any contractor, so be sure to look into them as well.
- Is their estimate comprehensive (and reasonable)?
Be sure that your estimate includes all aspects of the project, including labor, parts, materials, electrical work, etc. Once you have this, compare it to the estimates you receive from other contractors you are looking into to make sure you’re getting a reasonable price.
