What do you need to know when finding a driveway specialist?
When hiring your local driveway specialist, it’s important to not choose based on recommendation, make sure they are a registered and accredited tradesman. Ask for documentation to certify their background and experience.
An accredited driveway specialist will belong to the Marshalls Register of Accredited Landscape Contractors and Driveway Installers. This is a nationwide network of professionals who are verified and monitored by the register to measure their levels of competence and performance.
In terms of insurance, you can protect yourself against fraud or poor workmanship if the tradesmen let you pay by credit card. Your local tradesman may say his work is guaranteed, but if they go bankrupt you may not be covered and therefore it’s essential you ask if they have insurance backing their guarantee that covers you in the event of them going out of business.
An experienced professional should be able to provide all of this information. If they cannot, or are hesitant to do so, it would be wise to continue your search.
