Responsibilities for flooring contractors

When investing in new flooring it is best practice to employ an established flooring contractor with excellent references. This will ensure a smooth installation of a high-quality floor that is long-lasting and durable. You need a industrial flooring contractor who understands the products and how to use them. It is also imperative they guarantee to take full responsibility of all aspects of their work. So, what are the Responsibilities for Flooring Contractors? read on to find out:

Conduct a site survey

The flooring contractor must carry out a site survey. This is to ensure the correct product is used and it is an opportunity to assess what floor preparation needs to be done and what floor preparation equipment will be needed. Your contractor should be able to give a timetable of when the flooring will be completed. They must be able to oversee the project from start to finish and give you the name and contact details of the person in overall control of the process, so you always have a point of contact who can be contacted easily.

Floor preparation

Good flooring preparation is key to a long-lasting durable finish, otherwise, it is likely the floor coating will fail. It is worth knowing if the flooring contractor uses an in-house team or subcontracts to another firm. Also if the flooring contractor is using the correct equipment for the job. For full accountability and control, we use our own in-house team and our own equipment. Flooring preparation often needs to be done with diamond-headed, vacuum-assisted grinding equipment to ensure the substrate is dry, level, clean and dust-free.

Applying the floor

A flooring contractor must know the products well enough to ensure they are applied correctly and to a high standard, using the correct equipment and applying the correct number of coats to the floor. This also means they should be able to give you detailed advice on how to maintain and clean the floor properly.

Correct documentation

Your flooring contractor must be able to ensure all of their work complies with health and safety regulations. If the work comes with a guarantee, then they must also supply you with certificates and any other relevant paperwork, e.g. RAMS and safety data sheets.
