Installing new carpeting in your home is a major investment. So, it's extra important that you are sure that the crew you have hired to do the work is of the highest caliber, to avoid any unfortunate mishaps or costly mistakes.
How do you know who is right for the job, and who should be avoided at all cost? Easy! With just a few simple questions, you can cut away a lot of the uncertainty that you might have about a prospective carpet installation service. Here are three questions any worthwhile candidate should be able to answer to your satisfaction to be considered for the job:
1. Are You Licensed, Bonded, and Insured?
There are a lot of shady characters out there advertising all sorts of services, and carpet installation is no exception to this rule. One of the best ways to be sure that your prospective team is actually qualified for the job, is to verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured.
By making sure that your workers are covered by insurance, you are protecting yourself from any possible legal problems that could result from a botched job. While not all states require that a contractor be licensed, you should at least be certain they are bonded and insured before moving forward. Nobody wants to fight a protracted legal battle and go looking for a qualified outfit to fix the mistakes of a fraudulent one.
2. Do You Use a Power Stretcher?
One of the major differences between a legit carpet installer and a fly-by-night operator is the access they have to the proper equipment. Most carpet installers worth their salt will use a power stretcher as part of the installation process. If your prospective team doesn't use one, you might want to look elsewhere.
3. Can You Provide Examples of Your Work and/or References?
Any outfit that has been in the business for any length of time should be able to answer this question in the affirmative. Don't just look at the list of references they give you and call it a day, be sure to actually follow up with phone calls to those references and, if possible, arrange to see the completed work.
Actually seeing the level of craftsmanship displayed by your prospective crew, is the best way to verify their credentials. The proof is in the pudding!
