Get quotes

To get a general pricing on your potential project, consider getting estimates from multiple contractors. When obtaining quotes, we suggest that you ask the flooring contractor to separate the labor, materials and other aspects of the job. This way, it would easier for you to find ways to save money while still ensuring a professional installation.

Check for references

To give you a better overview of the contractor’s quality of work, it is best to ask them for at least 3 references. This should be a mix of older and recent customers. Get in touch with these customers and ask what they have to say about the contractor’s services. Was the flooring installed properly? Was the job completed on time and within budget?

Match the material to the contractor

Whether you opt to install vinyl, carpet or wood floors, you want to make sure that the flooring contractor you choose has the experience in installing the type of flooring you have.
