It’s sometimes a difficult task trying to find a dependable firestop contractor, and it will typically take time finding the best one for your job. When you finally find that perfect contractor, it can be a huge weight off of your shoulders. Knowing everything is being done professionally and punctually can put your heart at ease. Just to be safe, though, it’s important to know exactly what should be getting done while your firestop contractor is working with you. Here is what to expect from your firestop contractor.
They Give You Frequent Updates
Your contractor should touch base with you every now and then to report how the job is progressing. If they don’t, you can’t be entirely sure that the job is getting done at all. You want to remain as informed as you can be so that you know if everything is going as it should or if there are any issues that require your attention.
If there are problems you have to address, knowing about them sooner rather than later is better because you’ll have more time to manage your budget while also avoiding more unpleasant surprises down the road.
Your Firestop Contractor Gets Certification From Many Different Firestop Manufacturers
For those who don’t know, you should not mix firestop materials that were made by different manufacturers. Because of this, your firestop contractor has to know which materials they should be using on your property.
Working with a firestop contractor that has the necessary certifications means that they will always use the right materials while they work. It also means they’re familiar with all of the UL codes that are associated with whatever products they need to use. Being familiar with these products will allow your firestop contractor to utilize them to their greatest potential.
They Work Neatly and Cleanly
Firestopping can get a little messy at times if your firestop contractor doesn’t have as much experience. You know you have a good firestop contractor if they can keep everything clean and tidy. You should never hear the excuse that firestopping is “just a messy job.” This just means your contractor doesn’t have as much experience as a seasoned professional.
