Choosing the right countertop company is just as, if not more, important than finding the right type and quality of stone for your project. A skilled countertop company will ensure that your countertops are installed correctly, and they can help you choose the best materials and design for your specific project. This week’s blog will offer tips to help you choose the right Omaha countertops company for your next project!
When searching for countertop companies, asking friends and family for recommendations is a great place to start. Once you’ve gathered options that way, do a quick Google search for the companies you’re considering and gather information regarding their services. Specifically note their experience, quality and reputation, and any provided examples.
Once you have narrowed down some choices, it’s essential that you visit their showrooms or view their full selection online. By visually seeing their products and past projects, you will be able to make a more educated decision based on the quality of their work.
It is also helpful to speak with a professional in person so that you can get any questions answered that their company website may not have answered you. Here are a few important ones:
How long have you been in business?
Make sure that the Omaha countertops company you choose has several years of experience under their belt. You’ll be trusting them not only with the construction of your project but to be in your home.
Can I see samples of your work?
Don’t stray from asking to see more of their work. The best way to know the quality is to see it up close and personal. You can’t be too safe when choosing your countertop company.
What is your process/timeframe like?
Countertop companies, just like any contractor, can easily become busy with many overlapped projects. It’s critical to choose a company that will be able to get your project completed within your desired time frame.
How much do you charge?
Like the saying goes, “don’t put all of your eggs in one basket”. The same goes for picking a countertop company. The best thing you can do is get bids from multiple companies in your area. By doing so, you will get an idea of the price of your project, as well as better understand everything that needs to be done.
What warranties do you offer?
Countertop companies will offer different warranty options, which can either be of benefit or become detrimental to your project. On top of company warranties, you should also ask about the manufacturer warranties of the specific natural stone brands you are considering.
