If you are interested in in making the whole experience a bit easier, here are our three top tips:
1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
A common complaint regarding wood floor polishing Kenmore is often that the tradesmen haven’t started their job on time, or that the work isn’t up to standard.
Prior to the internet, word of mouth recommendations were very useful when selecting a company. Well the good news is, this is still an option. Possibly the most important step when selecting your floor sanding company is going with a well recommended company. When researching a floor sanding company, it is important that you consider their Google+ rating. If a company has a strong online presence, and actually encourages their customers to leave their feedback it is always a good sign that they are a service provider that you can have confidence in.
2. GET A QUOTE AND PAY ATTENTION TO THE DETAILS
A Comprehensive quote is crucial if you want to make sure that the agreement goes according to plan. There are particular things to check for that can let you know whether or not you are dealing with a professional company. Is there an ABN listed? And how detailed is the description of work? If it is brief or vague you run the risk of facing additional charges as the process unfolds. You don’t want to be held to ransom by an unethical tradie because you didn’t realise the quote did not cover everything that you expected it to.
3. GET MORE THAN ONE QUOTE
We recommend getting more than one quote before you settle on a company. Our many years in the flooring industry has reinforced our belief in the saying, “you always get what you pay for”. If you notice that a company is more than happy to cut their fees to win your job then it’s probably for one of these reasons. Firstly, business is slow for them, which doesn’t reflect well on their standard of service and the quality of their floors. And
secondarily, floor polishing Kenmore companies who offer their services for surprisingly low cost, can most likely do so by cutting corners. A properly finished floor requires multiple go-overs during the sanding phase, this is a corner that could easily be cut. Another, is insufficiently coating the floor. If timber doesn’t receive the right number of coatings, it will cost less sure, but there are inevitably problems that will follow. A badly sanded floor will show scuff marks and scratches and will feel rough underfoot. Even worse, floor that has not been properly coated will lack durability and will be susceptible to warping from moisture exposure.
Obviously financial considerations are in important part of your decision but be careful not to be lured into low cost low, quality options that will cost you more in the long run.
The reasons a good quality company can’t slash their prices to compete with poor quality providers is as follows:
- Their employees are well qualified and have years of experience which means they earn a higher rate than inexperienced or unqualified tradesmen. This is critical because this determines what quality of floor you can expect once the job is done.
- They don’t cut corners. This is the only way to guarantee an impeccably finished floor every time. A trustworthy company will not compromise on professionally completing each step in the sanding and coating process. Asking a customer to leave their home a second time to revisit a faulty job is not an embarrassment we impose on our clients. We get it right the first time, each and every time.
- The last thing to be factored in for Wood floor sanding Kenmore, is that timber floors are a natural material. We love natural materials and part of their beauty is the fact that they are not generic, they are unpredictable and unique. As result, on occasion something unexpected may present itself meaning a floor may require special attention. An experienced company knows this and will allow for this in their quote. This means that they will complete the work to a high standard, even if this particular floor required additional time or attention. Companies who boast basement prices are unlikely to stick around to sort out any one-off challenges that may arise.
