Installing tile floors is not a home improvement project that just anyone can undertake. You want to make sure that you find the right tile installer, so your home floors are not only beautiful, but are also straight, functional and without problems. Buying flooring materials and installing floors is not an inexpensive venture, so hiring the right floor installation company is the key to doing it right the first time.
Talk to Friends and Family
Start some discussions with family members, co-workers and friends who have recently installed tile in their homes. Find out which installation company they used and what experiences they had working with the installers. People are only likely to refer companies they have had a good experience with and let you know which companies to avoid altogether.
Get Professional Referrals
Think about the other professionals you know that are linked to tile installers. Real estate agents, contractors and interior designers are but a few of the options. Contact people you know who are in these professions and ask for referrals to a good tile installer. kitchen backsplash
Contact Tile Stores
Area tile stores are another great source for finding quality tile installers. Some tile stores have a list of installers the store representatives refer customers to contact when they need installation. In most circumstances, these installers have been providing installation services to the customers of the stores for years, so you are typically in good hands when the tile store gives you the name and contact information of an installer.
Interview the Installers
Choosing the right tile installer is about more than the price of their estimate. When the installer comes out to your home to do the estimate, make sure you talk with them and ask any questions you may have. Find out how long they have been in the tile installation business and ask to see pictures of their previous work. Also, ask for client references that you can check-especially if the company was not a referral. Ask what type of materials and which method of tile installation the installer is going to use. Inquire about the status of the installer’s license and insurance. After you receive the estimate, re-contact the installer to ask any follow-up questions. In essence, you want to have a complete understanding of what the installer is going to do and what you are being charged for before deciding which installer is the right one.
Doing the legwork up-front on discovering the right installer leads to choosing the right installer. Ultimately, this can save you additional time and money because it helps to ensure your floor is installed right the first time.
