So, you've picked out the perfect laminate floors for your home and now it's time to think about having them installed. This is a crucial point in the life of your floors. If you make the right decision, you will have a seamless, smooth, headache-free experience and lovely new floors to boot! Get it wrong, however, and you could be looking at an epic nightmare.
At Completely Floored, we know the struggle is real, so we had our team throw together this quick cheat sheet of questions that will help you narrow down your search for a reliable flooring installation team. 1. Are You Licensed and Insured for This Type of Work?
Many contractors will claim to be licensed and insured, but it's important to ensure that this means that they are licensed and insured for the specific type of work they will be performing. A flooring installer that is licensed and insured to hang drywall, isn't much use to someone looking for a laminate flooring installation.
Your new floor is a huge investment and it's important to ensure that you have professionals managing that investment, to avoid costly problems further down the line.
2. Are You Covered by Worker's Compensation Insurance?
There is no shortage of things that could potentially go disastrously wrong on an installation work site. There are all sorts of blades, pointed objects, heavy items and tripping hazards. That's why it's important that you know your workers are going to be covered in the event of a workplace injury.
Depending upon the laws where you are, if your contractor isn't covered by worker's compensation insurance, you might be left holding the bag for any medical bills that arise from an accident on your job. Better safe than sorry!
3. What is Expected of Me?
When you are finalizing the contract with your crew, make sure to ask if there are any tasks that you will be responsible for making the arrangements for. Many crews offer to haul away any remnants and work debris as part of their package, but some do not, for instance.
Making sure you know what you need to take care of, or make arrangements for ahead of the project, will save you the headache of surprise problems during the actual flooring installation.
Simply by asking these three questions, you can cut out a lot of the hassle that comes from narrowing down your search for a crew that can perform a quality flooring installation.
