J's Flooring Ctr
DO NOT USE J'S FLOORING IF YOU WANT THE JOB DONE CORRECTLY!!! Jeff, the owner, is absolutely horrendous to deal with. Their workers damaged our house to the point I was in tears. I hired them to recarpet the whole house and put new flooring in the kitchen and bathroom. When they used the roller to finish the flooring in the kitchen they ran it next to my wood kitchen island and left a huge scratch. They tried to reuse the wood baseboard, even though the contract called for a new baseboard, after the new floor was laid in the bathroom and left nail marks all over. Also, the baseboard was not put in correctly and was 1/2 inch off the floor and the corners weren't mitered. They also managed to put a hole the size of a half dollar in the bathroom wall with a hammer and never told us. The worst part was when they went to install the carpet, I mentioned it didn't look like the carpet I ordered and was told it would look different once it was installed and vacuumed. Their store is two blocks from my house and the workers would not stop and go get the floor sample. Come to find out, I was right and it was the wrong carpet. I had to wait an additional month for the correct carpet to arrive and then was told there were other customers ahead of me so I'd just have to wait. Over a month after the original date, August 10th, that this work was to be completed most of the work was done by September 12th. I still can't open and close my front door with ease as they never cut it down they way they were supposed to but I never want this company in my house ever again. What really made me mad was Jeff actually called and asked when I was going to finished paying him, even though the job was not done. I had already paid him 2/3rds of the total bill and just drove down and paid them the rest just to get rid of him. I think he follows the business philosophy of "How to Screw Your Customers and NOT Make Friends".
Tips & Advices
In most states, contractors are required to have a license before taking a job. Some states also require registration. To be licensed, contractors must pass an exam and meet certain qualifications that prove he or she is a competent flooring contractor. Registration is simply a list of who will be performing a job.
The time it takes to install flooring depends on the type of flooring and the size of the room or rooms involved in the project. In one day, a typical contractor can usually install up to 2,000 square feet of carpet, 600 square feet of hardwood or laminate, or 400 square feet of tile or stone.
  • Do you have a professional license, insurance, and a business liability policy?
  • Who will work on the project?
  • Do you subcontract, and do you screen workers and have insurance policies to cover them?
  • Do you have references or examples of your work I can see?
  • Do you charge for an in-home estimate?
  • What type of flooring is best for my home in terms of architectural consistency, environmental influences (such as whether a certain type of flooring will be affected by humidity in my area), and durability?
Legally, insurance is not necessary, but it's a good idea for flooring contractors to have it. When hiring a flooring contractor, ask whether the business is insured. If it's not, consider that a red flag.
A flooring contractor should know the pros and cons of each flooring option. These might include pricing, time of installation, durability, and average lifespan of the material.
