Questions for Septic System Contractors | Evergreen On Site | Lake Stevens
Is it time for a septic system inspection or do you need your tank pumped? If so, you’ll need to find a reliable septic system specialist. It’s important not to rush through the hiring process, however, because septic system mistakes can be time-consuming, hazardous and expensive. To find the absolutely best septic system contractors in your area, ask these three questions before finalizing a work contract.
1. Do you have the required local and state certifications?
Ask any potential septic system contractor about required certifications. By law, all septic service companies must be officially licensed at both the local and state levels. This means they are registered to practice. If the company or contractor you’re interviewing lacks the appropriate documentation, you should probably find help elsewhere.
2. How much will the job cost?
Septic system contractors perform a number of different jobs, from septic tank installation and inspections to septic tank pumping and repair. Each of these services has a different cost so you should clarify what they will expect you to pay. Make sure to ask if all of the required materials, as well as any labor, are included in the estimate.
3. When will you be expected to pay?
It’s rare that you'll be expected to pay for any contracted work upfront. If the company you're working with asks this of you, it can be a red flag. Most contractors will expect payment sometime after the septic repairs are completed, but you’ll want to find out exactly when. Find out whether you'll pay the contractor on site after he is finished or be invoiced later.
