By which I mean the proper containment of dust and dirt.
I call this out as a separate phase because even after you’ve selected your contractor and signed a contract, this is the first time you’ll see how they work. With most of us, the way we do anything is the way we do everything, so observing them setting up the dust containment sheeting and laying down the sticky back paper in the walkways gives you an idea of how the rest of the job will go.
Since you’ve done your due diligence in selecting a contractor and prior customers were happy with them, you know they have the potential to do excellent work, but….. if on the first day you see work habits that you feel are less than appropriate for your home, the time to speak up is right then and there.
If a work habits correction is needed, you want to do it as early as possible. Waiting even a day or two makes the conversion a little more difficult.
If the contractor supervises the work and doesn’t personally do much and is not there on the first morning, he may not know his people are doing a less than stellar job. When work needs to be redone (dust containment sheeting needs to be moved, etc) it’s far easier to do so when only a little has been done.
For the reasons listed above, and more, if you need to speak up, speak up early, so it’s in your best interests to be there and to pay attention during the job preparation phase.
