A good limestone fabricator should have certain qualities that align with your goals and desires. Learning a few simple pointers should help you make that important decision. Take a look below at 5 tips to help you find an excellent craftsman who will be the best choice for you.

1. Customer service

Making sure that your artisan provides outstanding customer service is important. You will want to find out things like how they prefer to communicate with you about your project and how often. You will want to know what to expect throughout the process. If they are accommodating to you and are easy to work with, that is always a good sign.

2. Experience

Another good factor to look at before hiring a limestone fabricator is their experience. How long have they been working in their industry and how long have they been in business? If you expect a certain quality of work, it is important to ensure that the craftsman you hire has a great deal of experience in stone masonry.

3. Expertise

Excellent craftsmanship is one of the most significant deciding factors for hiring a limestone fabricator. A good question to ask yourself when you start is: what type of craftsmanship are you looking for? If you are looking for an artisan who can make you a custom home feature that has French hand carvings in it, then you will want to make sure that the craftsman you hire has that type of expertise and background.

4. Previous Work

Take a look at examples of the artisan’s previous work. If their custom home features look like the type of work you expect to see, then you know that it will be a good fit. There are many ways you can get a feel for their custom work by speaking with previous customers or reading their reviews, as well as viewing their portfolio or visiting their location to see the selection of natural stone in person.

5. Their type of work

What type of custom feature are you looking for? When you are ready to hire a craftsman to build you a limestone fireplace, limestone columns, limestone door surrounds, a limestone kitchen hood, or otherwise, it is essential that you make sure they offer this type of service.

6. Pricing

Typically, the higher quality of work and final product, the higher the price will be. Depending on the type of material and the feature you want, will determine the cost. You will want to be sure to find a limestone fabricator who will provide the quality of work you desire with the pricing that you can afford.

We hope that these tips help you find the right limestone fabricator for your next home project.
