If you are looking at having new floors installed in your home or commercial building, it is important that you do your research on the flooring services provided in your area.
Flooring services can vary from retailer to retailer and especially from contractor to contractor. Ideally, every retailer would provide their client’s quality installations, otherwise it would be tough for them to stay in business. Most of them do, however not all of them come with a sparkling reputation. So it is important to do things like check with former clients (hopefully you were referred to a flooring services by a friend or family member), check online reviews, check with your local Better Business Bureau.
But I think it is most importantly to go based on your gut feeling in addition to taking in all those other items into consideration. You have to have that feeling of trust. I know as a flooring services provider, I trust my instinct a lot. Every once in a while my instinct will let me down, but 99.9% of the time it helps me steer away from potential troublesome clients and focus our time and energy on clients that are fun to work with.
Obviously trying to weed out the good contractors from the bad ones can be even a more risky proposition than retailers when it comes to finding a quality flooring services. Some people are so desperate for a discount that they find someone on Craigslist. I am not saying that a person could not get lucky and find someone who is of quality craftsmanship, but odds are you will likely become one of the horror stories where the homeowner lost money and has a partial completed project because they can not track down the installer.
When investing the amount of money into your home that new floors require, take the time to do your research and pay a tiny bit more to make sure that it is done correctly. There are so many scenarios where a home improvement project can go wrong (no-insurance, warranty claims, etc..) so do yourself a favor and try to eliminate as many as possible.
