If you are going to hire a company to professionally install your new floor, there are a few things you should consider before you make your final choice. For every person you ask, you will get a different company.
Here are 6 things to consider while choosing the right flooring company:
Make sure the company is licensed and that its employees have been properly trained. If you have any questions as to whether or not the company is fully licensed and able to legally do business in your area, request a copy of their license certificate.
Insured and Bonded
In addition to being licensed, flooring companies should also be bonded and insured. This means they have an insurance policy in place that will compensate you if your home is damaged due to their employees’ negligence.
Experience Working with the Material You Want
Always ask to make sure the flooring company you are talking to has experience with the type of materials you plan to use. Ask to see samples of their finished work. Former clients who have been satisfied with their work, will offer testimonials on their behalf.
Ask for References
When you first talk to the manager of a flooring company you are considering, ask for references. A reference from a satisfied client may give you an insight as to how efficiently they work.
Don’t forgo quality for cost. There may be times, especially when certain materials are used, that it would be in your best interest to pay a little extra to make sure the floor is properly installed and the area is finished according to the company’s standards.
Look for a flooring company that has a good track record of being reliable. This means they show up when they are supposed to and finish on time. It also means that there are no hidden fees or unexpected costs.
