Wood flooring installation can be an intimidating project. There are so many factors, from budget to scheduling, that important things can sometimes get lost in the shuffle.
Installing new engineered hardwood or natural hardwood flooring can also be quite expensive, and you want to be sure that you are getting your money's worth and hiring well-vetted professionals who will do the job right, with no extra hassle. About Floors N' More wants to help!
We've been in the business for many years and we want to offer a few tips to help you find the best contractor for your project. Here are three important things to consider when looking at a prospective wood flooring installer.
1. Are They Licensed For This Work?
You have to be careful when picking your installation contractor. There are lots of shady outfits out there who operate under the radar and are really good at deflecting the conversation away from the state of their licensing and insurance.
If you find your prospective contractor gets a little dodgy when you raise the question of their insurance or licenses, run for the hills!
2. What Will They Do to Contain the Dust and Debris?
Wood flooring installation can kick up a lot of dust and a good contractor will take steps to keep the mess contained to the work zone as much as possible. You're always going to get some, but with proper attention to detail, it shouldn't be very intrusive or offensive.
Make sure your contractor has an effective method of dealing with dust and debris or you could be looking at a real headache down the line.
3. Do They Have Examples of Completed Work?
One of the best ways to be sure that you are working with a genuine professional is to see examples of their work. You probably already know to ask for credible references, it's often a good idea to go the extra mile and arrange to see some of the work they have done for those references.
If you don't have the expertise required to evaluate their work when you view it, take a knowledgeable friend along with you to inspect the work.
