If you’re going to be paying for new resin flooring, you’ll want to make sure that your company gets the best quality of service from your contractor possible. Ideally, your supplier should be accredited, reputable, use excellent quality products, and offer a reasonable, market-tracked, affordable quote.
It can be tricky to work out if your candidate companies will meet these standards. However, there are a few simple checks you can apply to each contractor to test whether they clear the bar for supplying your resin flooring.
1) Are They Approved Installers?
Are they approved installers of the materials? Inexperienced installers attempting to install flooring materials can result in a sub-standard finished product. Material manufacturers often have an approved installer network and can recommend companies for your installation. A good flooring company should be approved by multiple manufacturers to be able to offer a full spectrum of products and prices.
2) Are They Accredited?
Do they operate management systems such as ISO 9001 / 14001? Are they Health and safety accredited with bodies such as CHAS, Safe Contractor, Constructionline, and to what level. Is the company in a trade association such as FeRFA?
3) Are They Qualified?
All professional resin floor installers should be able to offer you qualified, solid proof of their skills.
Ferfa offers NVQ level 2 through to level 6 training courses and certification schemes for resin floor installers, supervisors, and managers. A flooring company that can provide you with trained, validated technicians is a company that can guarantee quality.
4) Do They Offer Good References And Reviews?
Often, the best proof of a quality flooring contractor can be found in their portfolio of recent work. Photographs and feedback can give you an excellent overview of what to expect from each one.
Does their website or brochure feature up-to-date, attractive photographs of well-finished resin floors? Can they cite any big contracts or prestigious jobs for clients? Are their reviews generally good (or better)? If not, why not?
5) Are They Financial Stable?
Can the contractor finance the project and will they be around through the warranty period? Check how long the company has been trading or credit check them with a company like Experian before you make your decision.
