The Best Flooring Contractors in Hartford County CT Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 

The state of Connecticut requires only that flooring contractors in Hartford County CT be registered with the state for flooring projects over $200. There is no test or exam for competency, merely a fee to be registered, so there is no state standard for competency among flooring contractors.  Not even that mere registration is required of those installing commercial flooring.

So obviously, simply being registered with the state is no indication that any particular flooring installer in Hartford County CT is even competent, is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all new flooring installers in Hartford County CT 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, good complaint record, verified worker's comp and liability insurance, verified state registration (residential flooring installers only) only employees legal to work in the U.S., best business practices, and more.



Flooring Contractors in Hartford County CT Perform Numerous Services

In addition to installing new floors, flooring contractors in Hartford County CT also do floor repair like hardwood floor sanding and refinishing, and other floor restoration. Some 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 Hartford County CT 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 Hartford County CT 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 Hartford County CT 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 Hartford County CT. 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.
