Value Vs. Price for a Floor Installation
Finding that perfect balance between value and pricing can be a tricky process when hiring a flooring contractor. Quite often, hiring the cheapest can cost you more in the long run due to poor quality flooring job or poor quality material used. If your goal is to have the flooring job done just once, you might want to rethink hiring the cheapest you can find. Be sure to research the quality of the flooring types by going online.
Whenever initiating the price negotiation, be aware of pricing that’s too good to be true. It is in your best interest to ensure the contractor stays in business if you care about the warranty. Quite often, flooring contractors go out of business and you don’t want to deal with a contractor who is no longer working in the field. Be sure to ask about the warranty coverage and have it in writing.
Asking for three local references for previous flooring customers is a smart thing to do. We ensure each flooring contractor we work with has impeccable references. We can provide you with many satisfied customers who are happy with the quality result they’ve received. The Flooring Pro Guys can provide you with many ‘Tickled Delighted and Happy’ customers who are more than happy to take your call, as we know you will be when we have finished your project.
Be sure to contact the references given by the flooring contractor and ask how the crew treated their property. Ask how they have cleaned up the mess after the flooring job was done. A good flooring contractor should be able to return the condition of the house to the way it was before. You don’t want to work with a contractor who is careless with your property or furniture.
A Professional Flooring Contractor
Don’t forget to see their liability insurance policy before deciding to hire. If they have a significant liability insurance policy for flooring, you know that a licensed insurance company has underwritten them as an acceptable risk. The last thing you want to do is work with an uninsured contractor. Insured contractors generally pay attention to details as lawsuits can increase their insurance premium.
Checking to see whether the flooring contractors have a professional signage on their vehicles is important. Remember, anyone can borrow or rent a pickup truck from a car rental place. Look to see whether the phone number on the sign is a local phone number. Call the number on their vehicle and see if their phone is answered professionally as a flooring company.
A Quality Flooring Installation
If you plan on occupying the property during the project, a real professional will give you a step-by-step plan and show you how they can and will control the mess. Even if you do not plan on occupying the property during the flooring project, there needs to be a pre-project plan drawn up and presented to you. You need to see the details, time frames, and projections for completion. The Flooring Pro Guys ensures you only talk to the qualified contractors in the area.
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.’
