“Bond” to the right screeding contractor for your project

January 2015

The “heavenly” screeding company with highly knowledgeable, skilled, experienced, and inventive workers, who are dedicated to customers and always adhere to initial estimates…It may seem like a dream that will never come true. However, such companies do exist; the only problem is to know how to find them.

Finding the right screeding contractor
The screeding company you hire may spend several days working on your construction site. However, the job that it does will have a significant impact on your overall project. How can you offer your clients extended guarantee on the work performed if you are not confident in the screeding contractor’s ability to complete specific tasks according to specifications?

That’s a tough question. For the best outcomes, you need to look for an experienced, knowledgeable, and reliable screeding company. How can you find it? By simply:

  • asking business partners, including engineers, architects, and other builders, to recommend screeding contractors that have done work for them in the past;
  • using Federation of Master Builders (FMB), Construction Products Association (CPA), and Trustmark to look for licensed professionals;
  • checking portfolios and seeing the jobs different companies have done in the past.

As soon as you find a screeding contractor who meets your specific requirements, you should ask for overall cost and time estimates; ensure that the quotes provided cover all the work that must be done; and write a detailed report, which should include all the tasks you ask him to perform. To avoid unnecessary discussions, put oral agreements – including start and end dates, cost estimates, and what exactly constitutes a completed job – in writing.

It is advisable to hire a screeding company that has already adhered to TrustMark standards. This organisation sets standards that screeding contractors are required to meet in order to become members. A great thing about TrustMark is that it not only takes complaints seriously, but also investigates cases and takes action against the companies failing to meet standards, revoking their certificates and removing them from the register.
