Today, we have seen an increasing number of timber flooring products and brands each day; the question is for the home owners, how to choose a good quality and safe timber flooring product? Since a piece of flooring is one of the most important and permanent assets for the home so it is good to take some time to choose a suitable one.
Here are 3 pointers that may be useful for the home owners.
1) Credibility of the Flooring Manufacturer and the Contractor
One important factor when it comes to choosing a good timber floor is to look at the credibility of the flooring contractor as well as its suppliers. Responsible flooring suppliers will usually get their materials from sustainable and well audited resources and manufactures them in the right way, environmentally.
Other than that, good flooring contractors will usually invest on reputable suppliers. Reputable flooring suppliers are usually strong in terms of quality products as well as financial strength. What it means to the home owners is that, in terms of material default, they would know that the liability is passed on the manufacturer and product warranty would be claimed easily. Hence, product quality will be more re-assured.
Good flooring contractor will usually has a more experienced team of installers who will ensure the home owners that the flooring installation done, would be fast, well delivered and in good quality.
Many a times, home owners may not be able to get back on some problems occured on their flooring many years after the installation. However, a good flooring contractor would have a strong maintenance team to standby and help home owners to resolve most of their flooring problems.
2) Look Beyond Product Brochures
The information from most timber flooring product brochures and marketing collaterals may not be sufficient enough for the home owners. Some times, things may also seem too good to be true. The home owner, therefore, needs to look beyond that. Ask the contractor to furnish you with what we can the technical data sheet which is the summary of all certification and test reports of the flooring.
Good quality timber flooring brands will usually be sent for various product tests reports and accreditations before they are exported or marketed to the end users. Credible flooring brands will usually have the right test reports for you.
As the test reports are usually made from a 3rd party research group, home owners will therefore obtain better and more credible reports from these sources, rather than annonymous forum posts and reviews on the internet which can be both positive as well as negative and untrue against the particular said timber flooring brand.
3) Get More Educated on Flooring
Be more aware of the types of flooring in your market. By understanding the pros and the cons of the flooring options, home owners will therefore be able to make the right choice as well as know how to maintain their existing timber flooring to last it for a long range of time.
Hence, by doing more research and due dilligence from the right sources, you will definitely get the best possible type of timber flooring products.
