When it’s time to either overhaul your existing driveway or fabricate one at a new construction, finding the best contractor for the job in Overland Park, Olathe, Kansas City, or Lawrence is a critical step to being satisfied with the final result – both upon completion, and in the years to come. While the commonsensical due diligence that should be followed for hiring anyone to perform work on your property holds true, if you choose Unilock pavers for the construction, you’ll also enjoy access to a significant level of assistance and protection in the hiring of your driveway contractor.
No Trust; Only Verification
Taking a contractor’s word concerning his or her knowledge, experience, and promises is a nice idea and might have been the way that the world worked in the past, but in today’s world, that misguided trust may end up costing you both financially and in the final outcome of the project. Dismiss the notion of a handshake deal; any construction must be described in detail within a written contract that includes terms and rates.
You can begin your search for a contractor by feeling out family and friends for past experiences with professional contractors in the area. Online, you can check out reviews on Yelp and similar sites, and the Better Business Bureau even offers online information for you to consult. Just as you want a company with a positive reputation, you also want to identify a company with a lengthy history of experience. This demonstrates their ability to maintain customer relationships and resolve customer complaints.

Portfolio and Insurance
Any contractor worth his or her salt will be able to present a portfolio of professional work as well as insurance documentation. Never allow a contractor to begin working without seeing both of these. Failing to do so leaves you open to liability and lawsuits should injury occur during construction. It will also leave you without a pathway to resolution if you’re dissatisfied with the work. It’s also always a good idea to ensure that the contractor has previous experience with similar style and scale projects as your design requires.
