Questions to Ask When Selecting a Deck Contractor in Northern Virginia

So how do you choose a deck contractor in NOVA?
Get referrals from a variety of sources. Ask your neighbors and friends who built their decks. Were they happy with the outcomes? Were they comfortable with the workers who built their deck? Was there anything they wish they had done differently? Do they have any hesitation recommending their deck contractor?
Another good place to get a referral from is your local building supplier. Ask the experts there who they would trust to build them a deck. Most importantly, find out who they would avoid and why. If they say a deck contractor does not pay their bills or workers in a timely manner, that is a big red flag that you want to avoid that contractor. Workers who are not paid by their contractor and suppliers who are not paid for their materials may be able to file a suit in court against you or get a lien placed on your home that you will be forced to pay off when you sell that home.
Selecting the Right Contractor
Once you get a list of 3–5 deck contractors with good reputations, ask each contractor for their license number, and check the status of the contractor with the licensing board.
Next, ask each prospective deck contractor the following questions:
How long have you been in business?
Are you insured?
Can I get some referrals from other customers and see your work?
How do you price your projects?
How do you handle payments? (Run, do not walk from any contractor that wants the whole payment upfront.)
How do you handle change orders?
Do you offer a guarantee or warranty on your work?
Once you feel satisfied with their answers, ask for bids on your deck project. Be aware, though, that the lowest bid may not always be your best choice.
