Each flooring installation or restoration project has unique requirements in preparation, planning, and execution. From establishing job performance timelines to working area containment, the small details complete the bigger picture. We want our clients to feel a strong sense of value from the service we provide. To better understand the scope of work and planning for various project types, check out our blog.

Product and service failures are a complication of time that no client wants to endure. Sometimes, products fail due to manufacturing issues. Other times, the product failure results from operator error.
Flooring materials can be especially sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity. Wood flooring requires specific “living” conditions to retain its best appearance. The battle we endure in Colorado is that most homes have an interior humidity below many wood flooring manufacturers’ requirements. At the time of our on-site visits we evaluate and discuss RH considerations as necessary and plan our project scope accordingly.
Longevity of your investment matters. We work with products that are consistent in reputation and performance. Sub-standard products can be a future liability that costs you not only money, but time and frustration.
Rushing and short-cutting
The unfortunate reality is there are contractors who rush and skip steps for a variety of reasons. One of the primary reasons is making a quick or easy profit for minimal effort. Lack of experience and training are another culprit for construction defects.
Latent defects from procedural mistakes are no fun. They often are covered during the construction process and can be difficult to resolve. Some incidents may result in the need for litigation depending on the situation. Construction involves skill, experience, and integrity. If the price sounds too good, then the discount could come with hidden fees in the form of latent defects. Knowing the questions to ask before the issues arise helps. It also helps to hire based on authenticity and integrity versus low prices and questionable promises.
