You’re going to let your flooring contractor into your home – which is why you can’t just pick out any old one to trust. With a little research and planning, you can definitely find someone who’ll be right for your home.
Be clear on your budget
U.S. News says to start where it matters: figuring out your budget. This will help you determine a lot of your options. Never go beyond your budget, though. Stick to your budget so you and your wallet will be just fine.
Know what you want
Chances are, you already have an eye on what kind of flooring is right for your home. It’s good to research on the materials you want ahead of time. That way, when you ask your contractor for a list of estimates, you’ll already have an idea of how much you’ll need to shell out money for.
Reach out to your friends, family and even co-workers for referrals. One of the best ways to find reliable contractors is through referrals. Word-of-mouth marketing works so take advantage of it whenever you can.
Get at least three contractors
Don’t limit your options. A good range of choices will include three to five names on your list. Interview at least three. Request for a written bid from each one and compare services and rates. Negotiate for better prices if you want to lower some of your costs.
Work out the schedule
An excellent contractor is rarely without work so you won’t be able to get them to start right away. Work out the schedule as soon as you can.
Check for groups and rewards
Rewards and memberships into industry groups are a good indication of trust and credibility so you’ll want to consider those things when you shop around for a terrazzo flooring company or contractors.
