Questions to Ask Before a Hardwood Floor Installation or Repair Job

Are you brave enough to entrust hardwood floor installation projects to anyone? If your answer to this question is a resounding no, then you might be one of those people who just cannot resist the beauty of wooden floors.

Since you do not want to hire an amateur for your hardwood floor installation, it is understandable that you are now checking the yellow pages for reputable flooring contractors. Still, this does not guarantee that you will find the one that you are looking for. You may try your luck on the web by searching for flooring companies in Philadelphia, PA with excellent reviews. To lessen your stress in finding the perfect flooring expert for you, here is a list of things that you need to ask potential contractors:

  1. Do you have insurance? – This is a very critical question because their answer would verify whether or not you are covered if something happens during the hardwood floor repair or installation project. You have to ask if they have a comprehensive business liability and workman’s compensation. It is not enough to know if they have these policies. You must verify if these policies are still active. Your next step should be to call their insurance company and double-check things.

  2. What is your hiring policy? РThis may seem to be a strange question to ask, especially since you are asking them for a hardwood floor repair or installation job, but you have to consider the numerous documented criminal incidents perpetrated by the crew of hired contractors. Protect yourself from such possibility by asking about a potential company’s hiring policy. Knowing this would mean that you will know whether or not they conduct a thorough criminal background check.
