licensed flooring installers hard at work

1. Are your installers licensed and insured to do this kind of work?

The answer to this question will tell you all you need to know when it comes to trustworthiness and business ethics. Accidents and major mistakes are rare, but they do happen. As such, it’s critical to ensure you will be covered and protected.

2. Are your installers NWFA certified?

NWFA stands for the National Wood Flooring Association. Flooring installers who are NWFA Certified are recognized in the industry as being the best in the business.

3. What kind of warranty do they offer for their work?

Your new flooring is a big investment. Choose an installer who will back up their work.

4. How will dust be contained, and clean-up be handled?

How will the rest of the items in your home be protected? It might seem obvious to you that an installer would clean up after installation, but that’s not always the case. Make sure they know that a thorough clean-up is expected.

5. Will they take the time for proper acclimation?

Acclimation is an important step when installing engineered wood flooring and will help reduce gapping, avoid buckling or other permanent damage. Get a confirmation that this important step will not be skipped.

6. What is the payment schedule?

A flooring installer should not request full payment before all the work has been completed. Typically, flooring installers will require a deposit on the first day and the rest upon project completion.
