The Best Reason to Use Certified Flooring Installers
There’s one reason why you should always use a certified flooring installer: Warranties.
Sure, you can DIY most floors nowadays, but not if you want to keep your warranty intact. That’s because most manufacturers will simply not warranty a floor unless it is professionally installed by someone who is properly certified.
You may not have noticed, but flooring has gotten pretty technical lately. Advanced performance features, a variety of installation systems and higher expectations from consumers have led to a number of developments – water resistance, for example – that may be compromised during installation if not handled properly.
Fortunately, there are many certifying bodies, from industry trade associations to manufacturers themselves, that offer a wide range of technical training and support to make sure your beautiful new floor stays that way.
Most specialty flooring retailers already work with certified installers in your community and are usually a safe bet when it comes to warranties.
If you’re selecting a mechanic from a list of independent contractors, you’d better make sure they’re certified if you want the coverage that comes with your floor.
