How to Pick the Right Flooring Company

Installing new hardwood floors or refinishing your current hardwood floors is a big investment. Done right, they will bring comfort and joy to your family while increasing the value of your home. With such a large investment on the horizon, it is crucial that you invest some time and energy into picking the right hardwood flooring company to work with.

While there are many home improvement projects that homeowners can successfully take on themselves; flooring is not one of those projects. There’s too much that can go wrong and the stakes are too high. We recommend that you choose an experienced professional!

Here are just a few things you should look for when researching and talking with flooring companies in your community.

  1. Great Customer Service: When you pick a flooring company, you are agreeing to let them make changes to one of the most valuable assets you own. Referrals are always good but make sure you also look at online reviews. Read through the reviews to make sure the flooring contractor has been timely, respectful of your property, trustworthy, and of course, delivers a quality product.
  2. Access to Good Product Lines: Make sure your contractor has access to the top flooring materials on the market. Ask the company you are working for about the variety of flooring options that have and make sure to also do your own research on the best flooring products to meet your needs.
  3. Experience: Talk to your contractor and make sure they have experience doing hardwood refinishing, installs, repair work, and subfloor fixes. There are so many little factors that can change a job scope that you want to make sure if something pops up after the job has started your contractor will be able to address the problem and make the fix without a long delay in the timeline.
  4. Least Expensive isn’t Always Best: Follow the old adage when it comes to picking a flooring company, “You get what you pay for”. Less expensive isn’t always the best in this scenario. This is a long-term investment in the value of your property and getting it done right the first time will pay off in the long run. One mistake on an installation or sanding and refinishing can cost you a bundle to fix.
