Do you have an upcoming project with plans to expand or revitalize your athletic facilities using synthetic turf? Then, this blog post is for you! Let’s talk about why it’s vitally important to ask the right questions before you sign on the dotted lines. The bottom line: organize a capable and knowledgeable team, so plans are smooth and successful.
Often, school districts and organizations decide to hire the cheapest installers and contractors for their field projects. While this is certainly tempting and appears to be the most budget-safe option, it frequently creates problems and drives up the final cost after the initial installation is complete.
Expect change orders when you go with the lowest bidder. The least expensive contractors are most likely uncertified and inexperienced. Uncertified providers lack the expertise and tools to install fields correctly and won’t help maintain or repair fields after installation. They typically make errors that extend project deadlines, add to projected costs, and sometimes require Certified Field Builders to correct issues caused by uncertified contractors. Read up on why certification is essential.
