How to Choose the Right Industrial Flooring Contractor
Industrial environments have specific needs, and safety is often the highest priority. Your industrial flooring should offer maximum resistance to slips, moisture intrusion, abrasion, UV damage, and other common industrial-related issues. Furthermore, you will likely want a flooring material that is cost-effective and easy to maintain. There are many different options when it comes to industrial flooring materials, but the right contractor can help you decide on the best one for your needs. Choosing your contractor can feel like a big job, however. Here is what you need to know about finding the right contractor for your industrial and epoxy floors project.
1. Licenses, certificates, and insurance
Any flooring or epoxy contractor you choose should be fully licensed, certified, and insured to work in your jurisdiction. Licenses demonstrate that your contractor is fully qualified to provide the various services they offer and have the necessary training. Certificates demonstrate that the contractor has the necessary training on various products, services, and equipment they will be using. Insurance coverage ensures that you can be confident that you and your property will be protected in case anything goes awry in the course of the installation work.
At Blackrock Industrial, we are certified by industry leaders and are committed to maintaining all necessary certifications and licensing in the proper installation, techniques, and methods as they are ever-evolving. We also stand behind our work with our warranty and will repair or replace defective materials or workmanship at no cost to you.
2. Detailed estimates
Your budget is likely one of your major priorities, and a reputable industrial flooring contractor will understand your need for an estimate. A detailed estimate will include both a total estimated cost for your project as well as a detailed timeline that includes costs for work completed on nights, weekends, or other atypical working hours. The timeline should also include an estimated time of completion so that you will have an idea of when the job will be done and your new floor ready to unveil. Keep an eye out for “hidden costs” or “fees” in the “fine print” of the estimate. Some contractors will charge extra for minor necessities, such as patching or caulking, which can quickly increase your bottom line.
At Blackrock Industrial, our epoxy contractor is happy to provide you with detailed estimates. While conditions are not always ideal for installation during normal business hours, we will explain how the temperature, humidity, and other environmental factors can affect the installation process and will work to ensure your project is done on time and within your budget as much as possible.
3. Portfolios and customer reviews
Industrial flooring is a specialized field, and not all flooring companies have the training or expertise to install the various high-quality systems in industrial flooring applications. You can request a portfolio of work to see their previous work. Their portfolio should contain examples of work they have done across a variety of industries using different materials, finishes, and coatings. Blackrock Industry has been in the industry for years and can provide you with numerous pictures and reviews of the work we have done with customers with a variety of installations, including
• Polished concrete
• Concrete resurfacing
