Deciding on a quality wood floor company can be a challenge. There are many different aspects of the company that should be considered before an agreement is made. That’s why the experts here at SVB Wood Floors have put together a list of the six signs to look for to know you’ve chosen the right company.
1. Liability Insurance
Every professional company should have a liability policy in place. This protects you legally from accidents that could occur on the job. They are crucial when deciding upon a company. We have had no claims in our company history.
2. Workers Compensation Insurance
A company that takes care of their workers, will take care of you. When you are looking for a quality wood floor company, make sure they have workers compensation insurance, so that any injuries that occur during the project will be taken care of by the company. SVB Wood Floors has never filed a workers compensation claim in our company’s history.
3. Certifications & Training
Certifications and training should be taken into consideration. Just keep in mind, technology is continuously advancing. Receiving a certification or passing a training course 20 years ago is not the same as completing it in the past five years. Some certifications to look for include: NWFA & Bona Certified Craftsman Program, and any skills obtained at the annual Bona BCCP or NWFA conventions. You can find our employees attending these conventions every year.
4. Experience 30+ Years
Hardwood floors last decades if installed right. That’s why it’s extremely important to look into the years of experience each company has. Here at SVB Wood Floors, we have been installing, refinishing, and restoring wood floors to the Kansas City metro area since 2003. Our experts have industry experience ranging all the way up to 30+ years.
5. Dustless Refinishing
99.8% less dust is always a good thing. That is why we highly recommend looking into a company that offers dustless hardwood floor refinishing. Dustless refinishing makes your life a whole lot easier. There is no need to seal off doorways or rooms. You can sit back, relax and watch this state-of-the-art system do all the work.
6. Custom Stains
Don’t settle for the generic colors a given company has. Make sure you get the color that is right for you and your home. It’s best to find a company that can mix custom colors to fit your needs. Make sure this custom stain is included in the original quote so you don’t have the work started and get an unexpected number on your bill. Our custom finishes are always included in the original price.
