Ask your contractor many questions and check their references and licenses. Take the time to research concrete construction. Other ways include:
- Look at decorative concrete driveways in your neighborhood and get the names of the contractors who installed the driveways that appeal to you most. Be sure to ask the homeowners about their experience with the contractor and the quality of the workmanship.
- Get references from friends, homebuilders or local ready-mix suppliers.
- Get names through Yelp or Google Searches by zip code.
Once you come up with a list of contractors, be sure to ask for references and get a list of projects in your area that you can check out. Also ask how long the contractor has been in business, if they’re insured, whether they have any professional certifications, and if they offer a warranty for their work.
