Previously we talked about why it’s important to call in the professionals when it comes to epoxy flooring. However, when it comes to deciding on a contractor, it’s important to do some research and look for someone who’s not only professional, but also reliable.
We’ve all heard horror stories about unreliable tradesmen; those who show up late, or don’t turn up at all! Those that are slow to provide a quote, or give an unclear quote so that they can charge you more later on. And worse yet; the ones who don’t do the job correctly, leaving you with the headache of poor workmanship, or an unfinished floor, thus requiring more money to be spent to fix the problem.
So how should you go about finding a reliable epoxy flooring expert? With an overabundance of businesses all claiming to be professional flooring experts, it can be a rather daunting task. Here we have some tips to help you recognise a professional and reliable flooring contractor.
Firstly, ask for recommendations from friends and family. Often someone in your network can tell you whether they’ve had a good (or bad!) experience with a tradesman. Ask them what they did well and why they were happy with their service.
When friends and family can’t recommend anyone, then it’s best to examine several key attributes, including:
- Did they show up on time to quote?
- Did they present as professional and genuine?
- Is their quote clearly written with full contact details?
- Check their credentials – are they fully licensed, insured, and qualified?
- Do they guarantee their work?
- Are they members of a building association that adheres to high flooring standards and processes?
- Have they been in business for many years?
- Did they explain in detail the scope of works, and answer all your questions?
There is great value in using a reliable flooring expert. Not only will the job be done promptly and professionally, you will also be saved from the stress of having to deal with potential issues relating to an improperly installed floor.
