How do you choose a joiner for your home improvements when there are so many in Cambridge? This is a question that many homeowners have to deal with, and the answer is that you have to know the qualities of a good joiner. Here is what you should be looking for:
• They should have plenty of experience with the kind of work that you want done. There are many specialties when it comes to joinery – flooring, roof trusses, hand cut roofs, fascia and soffits, doors and windows and many more. There are some joiners who will choose only one specialty and focus on it while there are others who can do a variety of jobs very well. Whichever one you choose make sure that they have been doing the work for more than a few years.
• Compare costs before you hire a joiner. There are some joiners who are unnecessarily expensive only because they work in high-end neighbourhoods. Make sure that you get a detailed written quote before the work starts so that you can know exactly what you are paying for. Good joiners will ask for no more than 30% of total costs before they start the work.
• Find out if the joiner you have in mind is insured. Every person who works on your project should be covered so that in the event of an accident you will not be held liable. Look into criminal backgrounds as well – you don’t want criminals working in your home.
• Hire only a joiner who will provide all materials and who will clean up once the project is complete.
