A client expects the Winter Haven parking lot paving company to be communicative, responsive, an expert in the field, and many more.
We’ve talked extensively about how clients should go about choosing a paver they can work with, how miscommunication can ruin a partnership, and how bad work ethics must not be compensated. But what we missed to talk about are the expectations that pavers also have from their clients.
For a working relationship to be smooth sailing, both parties need to work hard to communicate their concerns and be responsive to the suggestions, complaints, and even the positive feedback of the clients.
You need to be transparent to your paving company. If you did menial work on your parking lot or driveway before, you need to admit that to the paver.
You need to also tell the paver just how much money you can spend on the project and what kinds of work were done on the property in the past.
That will give the paving contractor a good idea of what needs to be done and what you can afford for the meantime. The contractor may have various options that will suit your budget.
No matter how much you are paying the contractor, what the company expects from a client are fair demands. What was written in the contract should be followed.
Any diversion from the contract should be annexed. Any special requests are not automatically granted. Sure, the contractor can accommodate some of your requests but you don’t have to be demanding all the time.
Here’s another thing that clients need to remember: the contractor is not your employee. The contractor is answerable to you only as an equal in the partnership.
Some clients mistakenly deal with contractors the way they deal with their workers. No, contractors are not under your employ. They are service providers and not workers in your company.
Above all else, the Winter Haven parking lot paving company is expecting payments to arrive on time. Some contractors have a negative impression of a company because they refuse to release the payment on time, even after the project has been completed already.
If the contractors did their part in completing and finalizing the projects, you need to do your part as well in paying them the right amount and on time.
Respect begets respect, they say, and there’s nothing more that shows your contractors you respect them by staying true to the contract terms.
