Value Vs. Price for a Floor Installation
Finding a good value when you’re thinking about hiring a flooring contractor is a matter of balancing quality and price. Always bear in mind that hiring the cheapest contractor will most often end up costing you more due to the poor quality materials used and the poor quality of the job. If you need to make sure that your project only needs to be done once, you may not really want to hire the cheapest contractor you could find. Extensive online searches are a great starting point when researching the quality of different flooring types.
Be watchful of pricing that’s unrealistic when you’re discussing fees. You really won’t like your service provider to go out of business if you care about your warranty. You’ll have a tough time enforcing any warranty if your flooring contractor folds up his tent and steals away in the night. Get the warranty information in writing prior to proceeding with the negotiation.
Local references are a great indicator of the professionalism from a local contractor. Three references will probably be the best indicator. Any flooring contractor you end up hiring needs to have the best references as possible. The level of service we provide can be echoed by our previous customers. The Flooring Pro Guys will present you with contact info for satisfied clients who will gladly inform you about the results they got and their experiences in working with our flooring professionals.
When determining whether or never to hire a particular flooring contractor, make absolutely sure to contact the references provided so that you could find out how their crew treats properties. Asking previous references how the contractor handled the clean up process of their jobs should be one of your first questions. A proper flooring contractor will have the ability of returning the house to the proper condition. Those who are careless of property are unprofessional contractors who should not be worked with.
A Professional Flooring Contractor
Make sure that you see a copy of their liability insurance policy prior to employing a contractor. A licensed and reliable insurance company might only find reliable contractors as being acceptable to insure as low risk. Working with an uninsured contractor is something you would not need to do. A licensed contractor who is well insured probably is careful not to do anything that can cause their premiums being raised.
Ensuring that a professional contractor has professional signage on his vehicle is definitely an important detail to take note of. Note that just about anyone can rent or borrow a pickup truck at a car rental company. Pay attention to whether the call number is long distance or local. Take a moment to call the number listed on their sign to find out if it’s answered as a flooring company by someone who sounds professional.
A Quality Flooring Installation
Many people choose not to stay in their home while their floors are being worked on, because they fear the mess, noise, and potential disruption of their daily routine. Whether or not you remain in your home, your service provider should put together a pre-project plan containing info needed by homeowners. As the property owner, you should be given all the details, the time frames, and the projections for completion of the project. The Flooring Pro Guys are here to ensure that our contractors provide you with exactly what you need for the duration of your project.
Find out what the process involves from beginning to end of the project when hiring a flooring contractor. While some contractors like to finish one room at a time, others like to finish the entire house in one shot. Since any flooring job creates a mess, it’s a good idea to find out whether the crew will take care of the trash generated. Ask what kind of procedure is involved with the cleanup process after the job is done.
It’s A Messy Job!
Ask how the flooring contractor will prevent a potential mess during flooring. Professional flooring contractors drape the room with a heavy plastic. Contractors use a special overlap technique, creating a perfect dust barrier. They also wrap the room with red tape that says, ‘Men Working!’ which can look like a crime scene that you have seen in the movies.
It is a good idea to find out if the cost of the plastic drapes to prevent children from entering the unfinished flooring area is covered within the quoted pricing. Unsupervised youngsters can easily step on nails. Professional flooring contractors should be able to prevent a potential injury. The last thing you want the contractor to do is create a potential hazard for your kids.
A Professional Flooring Installation From A Trusted Flooring Contractor
Every professional flooring contractor that has had a flooring service for any amount of time should know his product lines from memory. He should also carry a professional presentation showing you each of the product lines that he has available. Every true contractor should know the pros and cons of each flooring product that he offers and be able to quote you the options and the price ranges for each one, from memory. If he has to constantly look things up, it can be a red flag.
If your contractor presents a contract for you to sign before a job begins, make sure that your specific requirements have been included just as you presented them to the contractor. It will save you a lot of stress and even money in the long run as long as you make sure everything you and your contractor have agreed upon is stated clearly in the contract. Don’t sign anything until you have presented all of your questions and concerns to your contractor about the job. Many times there are legal terms used in contracts that most people don’t know the meaning of, so be sure to check with your attorney about any of these items before you sign as well.
More times than you might suspect, even though great care went into picking colors, textures, and applications, once the first coat is applied, often the customer decides it is the wrong color. Even though there may be an extra charge involved for the wasted material and time, it would be a good idea to choose durable stain over low quality ones. You deserve to have the best flooring results exactly the way you want. The goal of The Flooring Pro Guys is to make you ‘Tickled Delighted and Happy.’
