Questions to Ask Your Flooring Retailer
Selecting the best place to buy your flooring can have the same importance as the flooring itself. It’s not possible to get a perfect experience; there are, however, a few questions you can ask both your installer and your dealer so as to make a well-informed decision.
You’ve been in business for how long?
For both the dealer and installer, this will always prove to be a crucial question. Well-known firms have a track record of success and attach lots of value to repeat business.
What does the final price entail?
This is a crucial question to throw at both your dealer and installer. It’s beneficial to know if the price covers premium or basic products. Here are some issues worth noting:
Does the price cover flooring as well as installation?
Are there upgrades at extra costs?
Do the final prices include taxes?
Does lifting and discarding the old floor have a charge?
Does moving my furniture have any charge?
Are estimates free?
What are the warranty terms for both the flooring and the installation?
Knowing beforehand what the requirements to maintain your warranties are, and who takes responsibility if there’s any issue is arises is always an excellent idea.
Will a professional estimator be sent to my home to determine how much flooring will be needed?
The amount of flooring you need to purchase to finish up your installation will be given by an estimator.
Is your installer insured or bonded?
Anyone stepping into your home to carry out any installation should be insured and bonded. This is to protect both you and the installer if any issue arises during the installation process.
Can you make examples or references of your work available?
Sometimes talking to a company’s customers is the most efficient way to rate its performance.
How long will the job take?
Let’s be realistic; your rooms will be rendered unusable while the work is ongoing. It’s always best to ask your installer to let you know the duration of the installation before the commencement of the project.
Are my subfloors in good shape?
You may be faced with installation delays if your subfloor is not in good condition or is not level. Some installers can make the appropriate repairs before they commence installation; however, you may need to engage the service of a carpenter if the damage to the floor is extensive enough.
