How to spot legitimate professionals:
1. A vast, varied sample selection. First, you can usually associate legitimacy with a vast variety of surfacing materials. Aside from colors, you should also be able to check out several different patterns, styles, and material types. If, however, the location has a very limited collection, then it may just be because you’re dealing with a ‘fly-by-night’ operation. In such an instance, you’ve basically found a store that has one primary goal; to sell you what they have in stock, not what you need for your renovation necessarily.
2. Knowledgeable, experienced professionals. The truth is, if you’re talking to a salesperson who’s having a hard time explaining the differences between this material and that material, then chances are, you’re not talking to a professional at all. Experts will have no problems whatsoever explaining the variances between samples. In fact, real pros will happily compare and contrast everything, from a hardwood flooring installation, to wall-to-wall. They’re there for you, the customer, to help you figure out which decision would best suit your home. On the other hand, if you’re dealing with someone who’s simply interested in selling you ‘whatever,’ in a completely unhelpful manner, then you may want to skip that store altogether.
3. Refers to or offers installation services. When it comes to a legitimate flooring company, they’ll either refer you to their usual professional installers or provide the service themselves. If, somehow, you’re expected to purchase the materials and figure out whom to call on your own, then that’s one serious red flag, one you should certainly avoid.
