When it comes to hiring a TV mounting contractor it’s important that you fully vet any potential contractor before letting them into your home. Without vetting your TV installation professional, you could wind up hiring someone who does damage to your home and your electronics. Today we want to help you to know how to vet your contractor by sharing a few questions that you can ask before hiring.

5 Questions You Should Ask You TV Mounting Contractor Before Hiring

1. How Long Have You Been in Business?

It’s not a given, but it’s always safer to hire a company who has a reputable history behind them. Many “fly by night” companies don’t have a reputation behind them and you run the risk of having them provide shoddy work, take your money, and not be around a week later when things fall apart.

2. Do You Have a Portfolio That I Can See?

It’s always helpful to see a portfolio of work because it gives you an idea of the type of work they perform as well as the diversity of their skill. If a contractor does not have a portfolio to share or is reluctant to share theirs, then you need to think twice before offering them a job. It’s also important to look for a contractor who has experience in the type of TV installation that you are looking for.

3. Do You Offer a Guarantee on Your Services?

A good contractor will offer a guarantee on their services because they know that the work they offer is high quality. If a contractor does not offer a guarantee on their service it should make you question what type of service they offer. An installation expert who doesn’t give you a guarantee is more than likely a contractor who provides shoddy work that they know will fall apart or cause you problems.

4. Do You Provide Appointment Windows to Your Clients?

One of the most important things to us here at Gulf Coast Installs is making sure that we don’t ask you to waste your entire day waiting for us to show up. That’s why we give our clients a small appointment window rather than asking them to stay at home all day and wait for us to show up! Ask your installer whether they offer a similar service.

5. Are You A Licensed Electrician?

IF you have a TV installation job that requires electrical modifications make sure that the installer you hire is a licensed electrician. If you’re not sure if the job you need doing needs a licensed electrician just ask your installer and describe the type of installation you are interested in. If you hire an installation professional who is not a licensed electrician and ask them to perform electrical services you risk the safety of your home and your family.
