Floorers in Cape Town

Affectionately called “the Mother City” by locals, Cape Town is the oldest city in South Africa. In addition, it is also the country’s legislative capital and primate city of the Western Cape province. 

With its warm Mediterranean climate, Cape Town is known for its mild, moderately wet winters and dry, warm summers.

The contours of Table Mountain play a big role when it comes to the urban geography of Cape Town, so do the mountain’s surrounding peaks. Thanks to these geographic features, the city is split into various commonly known groupings of suburbs or districts. Many of these have been influenced by South Africa’s history and developed together historically, and also share common factors like culture and language.

What does a floorer do?

Also known as ‘flooring installers’, floorers measure, cut and place the different types of flooring materials for projects. The work with any type of flooring material, including laminate, linoleum, marble, tile, carpet, and hardwood.

A floorer is hired to perform a variety of duties, such as:

·         Installing carpeting, hardwood floors, trims and bases to floors, etc.

·         Inspecting, measuring, and preparing floor surfaces to be covered

·         Safely removing old / damaged flooring

·         Laying and levelling subfloors

·         Estimating material and labour costs.

Floorers, along with other professionals like Architects, Electricians and Roofers, work in the building contractors industry. Many of them are self-employed, while others work full-time for construction / architectural / design companies.

The job of a floorer can be physically demanding, which is why it is vital for them to wear protective gear to prevent injuries, especially when it comes to their knees.

What to do before hiring a floorer

Dreaming about treating your kitchen to new hardwood floors? How about installing some lush carpeting in your bedroom(s)? Here are important tips to help you find the right floorer.

·         Get references: If the house of a friend or family member sports new flooring surfaces, don’t be afraid to ask the name of the professional who did the work. However, make sure you also question your friend / family member about the floorer’s honesty, their knowledge about flooring surfaces and the industry, their approach to the project (were they punctual, friendly, etc.), whether their rates were reasonable, did they clean up the job site, etc. Fortunately, homify makes finding the ideal professional for your project much easier through our Professionals pages. Our collections include additional information on each pro, such as location, portfolio, contact details, and even customer reviews where applicable. After drawing up a shortlist of a few possible candidates, do some follow-up research. Make sure they have up-to-date licenses, insurance, and other documents required by the law.

·         Get estimates: After narrowing your list down to about three or four potential floorers, have them come to look at your site. Here is where they will measure the area, calculate the amount of materials you will need, etc. Ask them what their estimated timeline for the project is, whether any background work needs to be implemented on the existing floor underneath, what accessories will be required, and the cost. Every candidate needs to provide you with a detailed quote on what they will charge for your flooring project.

What to keep in mind when working with a floorer

So, you’ve chosen the right floorer for your project – now what?

·         Get it in writing: After selecting your floorer, draw up a written contract. Like the quote, this must include the type and amount of material needed, the timeline for the project, what fees are attached to the services, etc. If any changes need to be made to the contract, ensure that it’s done in writing and signed by both you and the professional.

·         Give it time: Have patience – and depending on what type of flooring material you’ve chosen, you may need to have more patience in some cases. For instance, in the case of hardwood floors, you must allow some time for the materials to acclimate to the conditions of the space before work starts. Although three days is the minimum period, always check with the floorer.

·         Safety first: Depending on the type of flooring project you’re having done, there may be times when part of the floor can’t be used or missing entirely. Being the professionals that they are, the floorer and his team must put safety first and ensure no injuries occur on site, but it’s also your responsibility to ensure your family (and pets) stay clear of the job site.

·         Neatness is vital: If you will be living in the same home as where the flooring project is happening, ask the floorer where they will be sawing boards, storing their tools, and what precautions they will take to control dust. Also ask whether any rooms need to be sealed off with plastic, if any vents must be sealed off temporarily, and who will be in charge of cleanup. Remember that it’s vital to keep your ventilation system clear of sawdust, especially if you have any persons with allergies or young children living in your home.
