Encore Flooring & Building Products
I'm a custom home builder in NWA, been in business for 22 years. While no supplier is perfect I wanted to say that Encore has been great. They ALWAYS stand behind their products. Keep in mind, they do NOT make the windows they sell anymore than they design the lights they sell. These come from manufacturers all over the world, Encore is the middle man, they supply what I need to build homes for my clients. They are a one stop shop, you can purchase lumber, windows, doors, lighting, all flooring needs, fireplaces and more. The owners are honest and local, on the rare occasion I've needed to call them they have always taken care of me and my clients.

I had a great experience with Encore. My floors are beautiful, and I couldn't ask for better workmanship. Rick and Greg who installed them are meticulous about every detail, and Sean Groh, the salesman, was just a phone call away when I had a question or concern. Great company!!!

We ordered windows for our entire house and were well satisfied with them. The windows were delivered on time and we installed them ourselves.
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.
