Choosing The Right Contractor

Choosing the right tile contractor or any contractor for that matter is a very challenging task. There are many variables to consider in choosing a quality professional. I have heard my share of horror stories from customers who chose on price, or trust alone and were more than dissatisfied with their final product. Choosing the right tile professional could be the difference in having a quality installation you love for years, or one you have to hire someone else to tear out and re-do in a few weeks. There is nothing worse than paying for it twice, not to mention the cost of removing the poor quality job.

First and most importantly, are they licensed and insured? In order to practice business in Brevard County, a contractor must be licensed and insured. To get an occupational license in Brevard, contractors are put through a series of tests related to their trade, and must have a certain amount of references, insurance, experience, and assets.  Brevard County has a great website that will tell you if your flooring contractor has a valid county license and insurance, the link is below.

Second, ask for references. All good tile guys will have them, and most have done commercial properties such as restaurants, stores, and offices that you can go visit and see a great example of their work!

Third, quiz them. You want a contractor that knows their trade. Ask your prospective installer everything you want to know about your installation, the good contractors will have no problem answering each and every question. See if they have worked with your particular material, or something similar, before. Ask them absolutely anything you want to know, it’s their duty to be knowledgeable in their trade.

Fourth, ask about a labor warranty. Reputable installers typically offer between 1 and 5 year warranties on their labor. Keep in mind a labor warranty is exactly as it sounds, a warranty on just their labor. If your flooring materials are defective or of inferior quality, it is not your contractor’s fault. Be sure to go over all the materials you’ll need for your installation with your flooring professional before they start installing it, as most manufacturers won’t accept any claims after the material has been installed.

Remember; Tile, and all flooring in general is a very permanent decision, be sure to choose the correct professional for the job.
