Do you have insurance and are you certified? You cannot work with a commercial flooring contractor that doesn’t have valid insurance and one who is not certified to do commercial flooring. No doubt there is a lot at stake during the process of floor installation, but insurance is a good cushion for the same. There are reputable companies out there, such as the famous FLR Group that will always ensure they have valid insurance in place.

Do you charge for commercial flooring estimates? No doubt accurate estimates for commercial flooring will inform your decision of finding a reliable service provider you can work with. If not for anything else, at least you will be able to plan ahead with your budget et al. Some contractors will charge a certain percentage for the estimates, while others will do it for free. Both options are good depending on how you look at it, but be sure to establish beforehand if they are charging to avoid being slapped by a huge bill once you contract their services. Always aim to commit to a project only when you are sure of the total cost involved, the maintenance to expect after installation, and the credibility of the service provider.
