Choosing a Dado rail installer

There are many things that finish off a room in a unique way. One of those items is a Dado rail. This type of finishing piece is commonly found in either very contemporary homes that are looking to have an interesting design element or in homes that are more Victorian in nature. Either way, you need to have this finishing element installed properly so that the room has the right finished look about it when the project is complete.


In order to ensure that the Dado rail and other finishing touches are installed properly, you need to have a good finishing contractor hired to do the work. There are a few different methods that you can employ to select the right contractor. You need to start with getting a list of candidates that you want to consider hiring to do the work that you need done.


You can approach finding possible candidates passively or actively. The passive way is to flip open the phonebook and just take the first few names listed under the finishing contractor heading. The more active way, and often better way, is to ask for recommendations from people you trust. You should try to have a minimum of three candidates that you will consider, but no more than five. If you seem to be coming up short on the number of candidates you have then you will want to see about finding a good general contractor that might do decent finishing work.


Once you have your list of candidates it is time to find out more about them. The best way to do this through face to face interviews with each of the candidates that appear on your list. You should have questions prepared ahead of time and it is important that you ask each candidate the same questions. This will make it much easier to compare answers and candidates later when it is time to do that. You also want to make sure that as part of the interview process the candidates tour the space that will have the new rail and other touches added to it. It is very important that they see the entire scope of the project in person.


After you have met with each candidate you should have them all provide you with a bid and a list of references. Price is important, but so is quality. You need to make sure that a candidate who comes in with a high bid has the high quality to match. You never want to hire someone that doesn’t do good quality work just because they have a good price either. You need to get the best of both worlds when you are hiring a contractor to help you.
