Why You Need To Avoid Flooring Brokers
Don’t Hire The Wrong Person For Your Flooring Project in Colorado Springs, CO
Are you familiar with the term “flooring broker”? Flooring brokers are simply salesmen who do not have a background in hardwood floor installation.
Their experience lies in sales and deals solely with contracting out the work to install with other businesses for the cheapest price possible This line of business also allows the broker to pocket 60% of the profit made from each project.
Additionally, because flooring broker’s hire other sub-contractors, there is no security or control into who is being invited into your home to do the work. Don’t get bogged down in a sticky situation with multiple contacts, zero guarantee, and cheap products. Instead, opt for hardwood floor installation experts such as the experienced and vetted professionals with a clean background from Creations Hardwoods.
A Compare And Contrast of Market Professionals in Colorado Springs, CO.
Brokers do not have actual experience installing floors, they only sell the product and pocket the profit. And as another red flag, there is no warranty offered to protect the homeowner after installation is complete.
Additionally, a brokerage company doesn’t have “skin in the game”. They have very little committed, i.e. no office, no staff, no equipment, and typically no ties to the community. It’s very easy for them to walk away if things don’t go well.
Some building owners may think that should result in lower fees because the broker doesn’t have the overhead, but they also don’t have much incentive to stick through complications or hold subs accountable to their contracts and warranty work if there’s an issue after the project is done.
Often times, brokers are not local to the area and are blindly seeking their outside contractors in a market about which they know very little. They don’t have relationships or the knowledge of subcontractor work history, which is a risk a building owner faces for the future of their building quality and warranties.
The leverage that a broker has over a full team of outside contractors pales in comparison to a professional Contractor to maintain quality, protect the building owner, and deliver a project on schedule.
HARDWOOD FLOOR INSTALLATION CONTRACTORS.
Hardwood floor installation contractors work primarily on a day-to-day that consists of installing the product themselves. They provide much more control over the schedule and the budget on your project versus a construction services broker.
A Contractor will typically have their own self-performed trades working on the project site. Additionally, a full-time, skilled, project supervisor will be onsite 100% of the time for the duration of a project.
Having these company representatives onsite helps set the pace of the work, keeps the job site and scheduling organized and as a result incites progress on the project which in turn controls the budget.
You’ll also be supported by an administrative staff dedicated to keeping a record of insurance, invoices, sworn statements, waivers, etc. which are easily tangled if not managed properly and in real time, causing issues with financing and liability.
Finally, Creations Hardwoods offers a 1-year warranty and honor their workmanship. As an honest family owned business, they even extend the warranty beyond the timeframe as a best business practice.
Don’t ruin your dreams and sacrifice the quality of your floors and after-care by hiring a flooring broker.
