With small and large businesses in Adelaide providing concrete services, it can be a challenge to find the right company for your project. The laying of concrete requires knowledge and experience. All too often we have been called out to repair jobs done by other less experienced contractors, costing the home owner more money than if they had spent that little extra on a more experienced supplier in the first place.

Concrete is a permanent structure that can contribute to the beauty of the dwelling, or detract from it. Therefore, picking a quality concrete company to lay your concrete is as important as choosing the builder, it is worth taking the time to ensure they meet some basic criteria.

Over many years of providing our services, we have compiled a checklist of things to consider when choosing your concrete company:

 

Check List for Your Peace of Mind

Panorama Concrete

Other Company?

Builder’s License

Yes

?

Public Liability Insurance - $20 million

Example: If a contractor asks a concrete supplier to deliver concrete to your property, contractor is responsible for any damage the delivery truck might cause, not the owner of the delivery truck.

Yes

?

Work Cover Insurance on all personnel

Yes

?

Payment of GST and all Government Charges

Payment in cash (without GST) usually means no paperwork is kept by the contractor therefore no recourse for customers to turn to bodies such as Consumer Affairs if there is a problem with the work.

Yes

?

A detailed plan for you to check and sign before we start

You know what you are getting and what you are going to pay long before we arrive on site.

Yes

?

Fully staffed office and easily accessible before and after completion of work

Many contractors only supply a mobile phone number which is easily switched off if they don’t want to discuss your concerns. Often they only have a post office box as an address making it more difficult to contact them.
