As with most things, there is a lot more to consider when choosing a flooring installation service for your Fort Worth home. There are a lot of ways for a flooring installation job to become a headache, but most of these problems can be avoided by simply asking the right questions before the job even begins.
1. Are They Insured and Licensed?
This is a really important question to ask any flooring installation service. Fort Worth has any number of people offering flooring installation services, but not all of them are created equal. The bare minimum requirement you should have for any of these companies is that they be licensed and insured.
There are a many costly problems that could arise during a flooring job, some completely unrelated to the flooring job itself. What if the equipment causes a fire, or an employee’s breaks a valuable item in your home? You want to make sure you're not left holding the bag if something goes wrong.
2. Do They Have Worker's Compensation?
Very much in the vein of the last question, this question will help you sidestep a potentially expensive surprise. Here in Fort Worth, flooring installation companies are not required to subscribe to worker's compensation.
This means that if an accident were to occur, you could be the one stuck with the medical bills as well as paying for missed work days. Considering the outrageous price of medical care, this is a circumstance you almost certainly want to avoid.
3. What Are My Responsibilities?
Many carpet installation companies differ with regard to what they will be responsible for doing as far as preparation and finishing up.
Be sure to ask if you will be responsible for things like clearing furniture from the workspace or the disposal of any leftover flooring materials or debris.
Installing a floor can be a real dream if you are working with a serious company of professionals. Hopefully, by asking these three simple questions, you will avoid having that dream become a nightmare.
