How to Choose an Industrial Flooring Contractor
Installing industrial flooring is a specialized process that requires specific equipment, materials, and technical expertise. For exceptional work that is durable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing, you need the assistance of a professional contractor.
With numerous industrial flooring companies on the market, proper investigation is required to determine which company is the right fit for your needs.
Use the following as a guide to help you determine which contractor is best for you:
License and Certificates
The basic requirements a contractor should possess are a license and certification. A license indicates that a business is credible and qualified to perform the services that they offer. Certifications verify that your contractor has acquired the necessary training and skills to complete the job professionally.
Determine if the company has an insurance policy, as well as the full extent of their coverage. This will ensure that you will not be held liable in case of accidental injuries and that you will be compensated for any property damage.
Validate the documents with a call or visit to their insurance company.
A company’s reputation is a clear indication of the quality of their services and workmanship. Do a background check by:
- Checking the Better Business Bureau and viewing their track record for any complaints
- Reading online reviews (like in Yelp or Google) where previous or existing clients can leave ratings of their services
- Asking for the input of personal and professional contacts who have used the company’s services before
- Requesting the company itself for references of previous clients
A reliable contractor is upfront regarding the work that they do. They should be able to provide you, without question, details of the project. The contract should include the estimated cost and duration.
Knowing the total cost of the project will allow you to allocate your budget properly. Read the contract carefully and make sure that there are no hidden fees.
Having the project duration stated in the contract ensures that the project will be completed in a timely manner. This allows for planning of your operational downtime and signifies the date of its expected operation.
Protect your investment by checking the company’s warranties of their products and/or services. Make sure they are kept in writing in order to avoid any potential problems in the future.
