Wood Floor Installers | How to Choose the Right Flooring Contractor

There are three key things to look for when choosing the right contractor to install wood flooring in your home. In order to protect yourself and your home, you'll want to make sure your flooring contractor has ALL three of these qualities:

  1. Licensed
  2. Insured
  3. Referred

Licensed. You wouldn't let some 16-year-old kid without a driver's license drive your car, right? So you shouldn't let any 'Chuck in a Truck' off the street redo your floors without a license either. You should only hire professional contractors with proper and up-to-date licenses to work on your home.

Insured. This is to protect not only the handyman but you, too. If there was an unfortunate instance on the job that resulted in an injury to the contractor, and the contractor was NOT insured, you could be liable. However, when a contractor is fully insured, it's for their protection in case they're injured - and your protection so you're not held accountable.

Referred. Ask the potential contractor for references. Better yet, ask for references from the flooring supplier from which you purchased your new wood floors. The flooring supplier might have a few partnerships with preferred installers.
