Floor Coverings International
Floor Coverings International sanded and refinished the altar and choir area at my church, St Thomas Episcopal, Huntsville. Steve, John, and Matt did an absolutely fantastic job. I highly recommend Floor Coverings International. John, Lisa, Beth, et al. were wonderful to work with, and, the finished product was exactly as advertised by them. Many thanks and God's peace to the fine folks at FCI of Huntsville, AL.

Hi Tech has refinished floors in both of my homes in Huntsville and I had excellent, long-lasting results both times. Carl knows floors and matched some 100 - year-old heart of pine for a repair.

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.
