Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing Wood Flooring For Office
Choosing wood flooring for offices may
seem like an easy task that almost anybody would perform.
You could just go the store and ask for the most common type
of wood flooring in use and that would be the end of that.
Well sadly, that is not the case. When choosing wood
flooring for office people make a lot of grave mistakes that
could have been easily avoided. This is why you will find
that in Singapore most of the offices with wooden floors
have some major form of defect. Below are some of the common
mistakes that a lot of people make when choosing wood
flooring for the office;
1. Making Your Decisions Based Solely On Price.
You get what you pay for applies completely when you are
buying wood flooring for the office. Wood used for flooring
is got from a variety of trees. This means that the flooring
will be different and so will the price. Some people make
the mistake of selecting the wood flooring based on price
alone since they want to save costs. They will therefore
most likely select the cheapest wood flooring that is
available. Even though this may be cheap in the short run in
the long run it could prove costly because of numerous
replacements and repairs. Select wood flooring of a decent
price where you are assured that the price reflects the high
quality of the wood flooring you have chosen. An office has
to look impressive.
2. Overlooking Skilled and Professional After Sale Services.
When choosing wood flooring for the office most people do
not think of what will happen after the installation. They
therefore employ the services of firms which do not offer
the professional after installation services that the floor
may require. To avoid this, when selecting wood flooring
ensure that you get the flooring from a supplier who will be
capable of providing you with after installation services.
Since the two of you have already worked together the
services may be free or a lot cheaper than looking for
another firm to carry out the after installation services.
3. Making The Decision Based On A Piece of The Flooring.
A lot of people who want to install wood flooring in their
office will just look at a piece of wood flooring and make
their decision based on that piece of wood. The decision
that they will have made here may not be the right decision.
Wood is a natural product and it can be modified in very
many ways. You should not make the decision based on a piece
of wood, instead you should go to an office or somewhere
where the floor has been made using that particular type of
wood. This will give you a feel of the floor and your
decision will be better informed.
4. Choosing A Supplier With No Reputation.
When you select a buyer with no reputation to deliver the
wood flooring, you are taking a huge risk. This is because
the buyer may deliver wood flooring that it completely
different from what you wanted to install in your office.
This will waste a lot of your time and you may not install
the floor when you wanted and end up paralyzing your
business. To avoid this, always choose a supplier who is
well known and who has proven to be competent to supply you
with the wood flooring.
5. Having Limited Info and Not Carrying Out Research
When going to buy the wood flooring, most buyers will not
carry out any research on the types of floors. When some
suppliers know this they will trick you and sell you low
quality flooring at a very high price. Some species of wood
are durable than others and others are suited for executive
offices. A little research could go a long way in helping
you avoid mistakes when buying the office flooring.
6. Assuming When It Comes To Preparation.
Different wood flooring will have different preparation
methods. Some people will buy the wood flooring while in
their minds they think that it will be prepared just as any
other wooden flooring they may have had. This is a mistake
that could prove very costly and lead to a lot of losses.
