Tips for Hiring a Hardwood Flooring Contractor - Cost guide hardwood flooring

Contractor hiring


  • Referrals: Referrals are a must. Asking a friend, looking at reviews and even examining past jobs of specific contractors are all essential to make sure you have the right man for the job
  • Claims Check: Usually contractors work under a company name, meaning you might want to check the background of any company to be sure they are respectable.
  • Online Research: If the contractor has a website, you can start by researching the site to see what kind of pricing they offer.
  • Referrals: Ask the contractor for referrals from previous employers.
  • Onsite Visit: If your job is complicated, or requires high end execution and finish, you might want to go and physically see a few past works of the selected contractor to makes sure your job can be executed flawlessly.
  • Price Comparison: Cheap does not always mean good quality. However, comparing at least three offers from different contractors will help you to ensure you got the best deal.

Full Description of Limits and Problems

  • Timing Problems: A problem common to small companies is that they try to execute many jobs at the same time, which might lengthen your project and create schedule problems. It is recommended to agree on all small terms: if the contractor works full time or part time and what is the compensation for you if the contractor's does not execute as promised.
  • Avoid Verbal Agreements: Anything the contractors promises you must be present in a written, legal contract.
  • Trick to Grow Cost: Contractors often add costs by adding material delivery, waste removal, and other "behind the scenes" costs which we discussed earlier. Make sure to get all prices up front and in writing to avoid these unnecessary add-ons.
