The Best Flooring Contractors in Marin County CA Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 


The state of California requires that flooring contractors in Marin County CA be licensed by the state. The state's C15 license covers both hardwood flooring contractors as well as floor covering installers such as installers of carpet, vinyl, linoelum, etc.

But the state license for flooring and floor covering installers is no guarantee that any particular carpet layer or flooring contractor in Marin County CA is even competent, is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all carpet layers or new flooring installers in Marin County CA who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, verified state license, good complaint record, verified worker's comp and liability insurance, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.










Flooring Contractors in Marin County CA Perform Numerous Services
Flooring contractors in Novato, Sausalito and San Rafael often specialize in different niches of the flooring industry (new flooring installation, fabrication, hardwood, linoleum, etc.). Some do strictly residential work, others are strictly commercial flooring contractors, and some do both. Most flooring contractors install new hardwood flooring, but they might also repair flooring or do floor refinishing. Some flooring contractors can even perform the duties necessary to prepare the subfloor.

Some hardwood flooring contractors in Marin County do every aspect of the installation process from initial fabrication to post-installation flooring finish work. They can custom stain and perform dustless sanding of hard materials, and install other features to embellish the new addition, such as custom moulding, custom milling, custom borders and inlays, inserts, matching baseboards or ceramic tile baseboards.

Some flooring contractors also perform as floor covering installers, meaning carpet layers, and layers of other floor coverings like linoleum.

Flooring Contractors in Marin County Work with a Variety of Good Flooring Products
There are many standard, affordable options in the flooring marketplace. Unfortunately, many of them involve some kind of compromise. Lighter, cheap flooring can stain easily, colors may fade with time and some shed or unrelentingly retain odors. But flooring contractors in Novato, Sausalito and San Rafael can install carpeting, laminate and wood flooring options far beyond shag carpet and synthetic linoleum. Materials range anywhere from stain-resistant carpets to environmentally-friendly composites.

With the proliferation of flooring types and technology, the capabilities of the installing contractors have had to progress and multiply as well. Good flooring contractors are equipped to perform precision installation of most laminated or unfinished wood flooring, including red oak, white oak, bamboo (which is technically a grass), fumed oak, Brazilian cherry, hand distressed beech, cherry, or beveled beech.

Flooring contractors may also be acquainted with the techniques necessary to install merbau, ash, maple, hickory, pecan, distressed natural beech, and finished or unfinished exotic hardwood flooring.

Aside from appearance and practicality, there are other factors you may choose to consider when working with a flooring contractor in Marin County. Some flooring contractors offer options in environmentally friendly or sustainable materials, so-called "green flooring", such as vinyl composition tile (VCT),  reclaimed hardwoods, reclaimed bamboo, acid-proof dex-o-tex, or other sustainable flooring materials.

Some Flooring Contractors in Marin County Are Safer to Spend With Than Others

Questions To Ask Flooring Contractors in Marin County CA 

When choosing which flooring contractor to hire, ask these questions about their experience, range of services, credentials, and methods and materials.

 

• How long have they been in business?

• How many floor covering installations, floor repair or new floor installations have the floor contractors done in Marin County specifically? (Different areas have different climate and moisture issues which can effect the choice of floor materials or installation methods, and lots of previous installations in your specific climate indicates experience in this regard.)


•How much experience do they have in the exact type of new flooring you want installed?


• Can the flooring contractor give you client names and numbers you can call as references? (All flooring contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had their client references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)
