Research Flooring Manufacturers Before You Buy

floorcovering, linoleum, vinyl, laminate, carpet, rubber, cork

Before you decide on a floorcovering, be sure to research the manufacturer first. Established companies that have been around for a long time will most likely continue to be around — important if you need to repair or replace part of your floorcovering years down the line. Ask about product availability now and in the future.

Compare manufacturers’ warranties. Obviously, the longer and more inclusive the warranty, the better.

Ask about what the company offers in terms of technical service and support. Helpful, reliable and fast service, coupled with a good warranty and product availability will save headaches in the future when you unexpectedly need to replace part of your floorcovering.
