Delaware Flooring Contractors

When thinking of installing new flooring in Delaware, homeowners should check the stat'es legal requirements for hiring. If completing the work themselves, checks should also be made to confirm if there are any special permitting requirements related to modifying one's home.

Licensing in Delaware

To complete flooring renovation or installation work in Delaware, all contractors must be licensed. The license requires an annual renewal at a cost of $75. To apply for a license, contractors must contact the Department of Revenue.

All persons applying for a license must pass an exam and meet the requirements of the state.

Legal Issues and Complaints

The investigative arm of the Delaware government has a host of information regarding filing a complaint on its website. There is information on how to file a complaint, what needs to be included in the document, what happens at each stage of the process, and how often the department will provide updates.

If consumers try to resolve a conflict with the company, they should take note of all conversations and correspondence that occurrs during the process.

Consumer Protection

Before hiring a contractor, consumers should complete ample due diligence in order to be satisfied that the person or company being hired is legitimate and licensed. The Delaware state website allows consumers to check the validity of licences.

Consumers should get a few quotes from various companies and check the request references where possible.

Choosing the lowest quote is not always the best option as many other factors could influence the decision. As an example the experience that the contractor has with the material consumers want installed as well how that material responds to the Delaware climate is important.

Another important point is to get the contract and all amendments or promises in writing. If a dispute should arise the contract would be vital to helping resolve the issue.

Common Flooring Installation Issues

Delaware often has severe weather conditions that can cause cracks and leaking in the home's foundation. As a result the main problems could be shrinking and expanding of wood and laminate products, moisture or dampness rising from the surface which could ruin carpets and even cause foul odors. A problem sometimes associated with bamboo products is that the moisture can cause the material to swell. With this in mind homeowners would need to choose the most appropriate material for the climate and target room.
