Things to Look for When Finding your Flooring Supplier
When it comes to investing in new flooring for your home, it’s often something you need to plan – and budget for – in advance.
It’s a considerable purchase that needs to last and so most people put a fair amount of time, thought and funds into it.
Given this, finding a flooring partner that can be trusted to act in your best interest is essential.
So, what are the top 3 things to look for in a flooring supplier?
1. They’re customer and solution focused
When it comes to buying flooring, it really is all about you!
That is, the flooring specialist you choose should be focused on really listening to learn what you and your family are after.
They assess your needs and wants and offer up a range of flooring solutions that suit your lifestyle, aesthetic preferences and budget, and then let you select what’s best for you.
Questions they should ask include what each room you want flooring for is used for, how much foot traffic it gets, how you’d like the room to feel, any concerns you have about particular flooring materials, what your price range is, how long you’d (ideally!) like the covering to last etc.
They should also be experienced, knowledgeable and ready to answer all your questions, as well as be there to problem solve with you.
2. They offer a range of products
A good flooring expert knows that there’s not usually just one option that will work for each room, so ensuring the supplier you go to can offer you multiple stylish solutions – from carpet to timber, hybrid, vinyl and laminate flooring – is a must.
Each flooring choice has pros and cons and learning from a trusted source about each material and its qualities can make your decisions simpler.
Remember, often you’ll go with different flooring for different rooms to create the perfect look and feel in your home, so being able to have all your needs – including installation – managed by one outfit is a big relief.
3. Quality & Experience
In the flooring world, not everything is created equal, so ensuring you’re getting a quality product is imperative.
It’s crucial to ask about where the flooring you’re considering is made and how long the manufacturer has been in partnership with your supplier. Asking about product and service warranty and guarantee information is also vital.
Do your research. Check out customer reviews, ask friends and family, and check the supplier’s history and how long they’ve been in business.
Going for a well-established flooring specialist with deep experience, which has proved its reliability over time, provides crucial peace of mind.
Happy flooring shopping!
