Looking For A Retaining Wall Contractor - Don't Always Pick the Lowest Bidder

So you have decided that it’s time to construct a retaining wall and it’s a project that you decide you want professional help for.  You call a couple of local contractors and get some bids.  The question is who do you select for the project?


All contractors are in business to make money.  If one contractor is offering a far lower price than all of the rest, then the only way they can likely make a profit is to take short cuts on materials or installation and hope that the homeowner doesn’t figure it out until they get paid.  Choosing the right contractor for your project requires careful consideration.  If a contractor gives vague answers, uses broad generalizations, or is reluctant to put things in writing you should eliminate them from consideration.
