Selecting Flooring Contractor

One important thing to inquire about is the quality of subflooring installations. Ask the flooring installers about the kinds of tiles they use on the job. inquire, as to what type of adhesives, such as nails, they use for installation and inquire about whether or not the subflooring has been stained or painted. Many tile installations are done with a surface mount adhesive which means it simply “nicks” the subfloor and is not bonded together. Ask about the manufacturer’s guarantee.

Even with a flooring contractor’s certification and reputation, you still want to hire a contractor who will complete the job properly and who will be honest with you. Ask friends and relatives if they’ve ever used a particular Flooring Contractor and ask them how they felt about the work that was done. It’s also a good idea to check out online reviews of the flooring industry to find out what customers have been saying about certain flooring companies. When you find a few names and phone numbers, call each one to find out how satisfied their customers are with their work.

Finally, after you’ve found several flooring installers who seem to have good recommendations and a good reputation, you may want to consider working with an independent carpet cleaner to complete some of your flooring installations. An independent carpet cleaning company has the experience to clean carpets properly and can give you an estimate before any work is done. Look into finding a business management company who has experience with the installers and flooring contractors you’re interviewing.
