Industrial flooring is a highly specialized field, and very few companies have the technical expertise to provide top-quality systems with a timely and professional installation process. From anti-skid and impact resistant epoxy flooring to low maintenance and chemical resistant to concrete polishing, there is little room for error. Time is money, and your facility needs to be back up and operational as soon as possible. Here are some common questions to consider when choosing between the many options of industrial flooring contractors.
Do they have a portfolio of completed projects in a variety of finishes?
Every facility has different needs, and your contractor should readily provide a list of references from past projects. Choose a reliable professional contractor who has several portfolio examples across a broad range of industries. With years in the industry, Liquid Floors has numerous examples for your review. If you like what you see, the sales team will offer a free consultation to discuss your options and assess your individual needs. Ask about:
- Epoxy Coatings
- Urethane Coatings
- Polished Concrete
- Surface Testing Procedures
- Spill and Chemical Resistance
- Anti-Skid and Slip Resistance
- Impact Resistance
- Durability Ratings
- Color and Patterning Options
- Reflectivity Levels
Do they provide a detailed estimate that includes both price and final schedule?
The more reputable industrial-flooring contractors will clearly indicate, without question, the total estimated cost of the project. The final contract will also specify a very detailed timeline for completion of the project. Many contractors only work Monday through Friday during normal business hours. But this is not always the best time of day for your business to have the work completed. Liquid Floors, for example, is willing to accommodate any schedule, including nights, weekends, and even holidays.
Do they have hidden extra costs located in the “fine print?”
Contractors sometimes want to charge extra for the minor things, such as patching or joint caulking prior to the coating or polishing process. Make sure to read the entire contract, especially the fine print. Other considerations to look for include:
- Ask about a comprehensive warranty. Liquid Floors always offers a warranty on all our industrial flooring products and services.
- Make sure that the company is professionally bonded and insured against possible property damage, too.
