I am looking for a reliable carpenter to install hardwood floors.

I was contacted by a company that contracts out with Lumber Liquidators, however in their brochure they exempt themselves from all liabilities whether it is the wood, contractor, etc. I don't want to use them and need a carpenter that can install hardwood floors. Help!!!! in Long Island

    Have you done a search for carpenters at the top of the page? You can always check their references and their BBB status, etc.

  • It is not uncommon for contractors to limit their installation warranties if they are not involved in the purchase of the materials. The markup of the product is part of the warranty that they provide when the job is done. If they cannot mark up the materials you will find their install prices are much higher then if they purchase the material and install it.

    Its also a good idea to acclimate the material for some time in the home and to take moisture measurements of the flooring and the sub floor ...the floor should not be installed until these are in equilibrium.
