Have you been researching new flooring?
Are you getting ready to make a flooring purchase?
Will you be working with a local flooring company?

Beware and make sure you have done your homework before you purchase your flooring!

We have all heard the horror stories of how a flooring purchase can go wrong – or how the flooring installation was not acceptable. Carpet that has wrinkles, tile that doesn’t match, wood or laminate that buckles are all possibilities when you are not working with flooring professionals.

Avoid the pitfalls of working with an unlicensed or uninsured company.  They can take advantage of you by not delivering the services they promised, the services you paid for. Always ask to see their license and proof of insurance.

Work with a company that is experienced and has excellent references as well. Ask to see the references.

Check if the company has a showroom where you can actually see the flooring products for yourself.

Make sure that you will be working with products from the top manufacturers that offer the style, quality, and designs you desire. Watch out when visiting the big box stores with the private labels. They make it harder to compare flooring.

Confirm that you will be working with a full-service flooring company. A company that will address your individual needs by taking the time to educate you about each product and procedure to assure that your needs are properly met. You will want to work with a company that offers a professional staff – from the estimators to the installers.

Take the time to review the pricing and the warranties that are offered. Ask questions to make sure you fully understand both of them.

Checklist – Purchasing Flooring

Here’s a quick checklist to review with your flooring representative:

 ✓    How long has the company been in business?
    ✓    Do they have a showroom?
    ✓    Are they licensed and insured?
    ✓    Do they carry flooring from the top manufacturers?
    ✓    Will they send a professional estimator to your home?
    ✓    Will they install your flooring?
    ✓    What is included in the price?
    ✓    What type of warranty to they have?
