Professional Timber Flooring Installation
Westech Flooring was established in 2003 from a growing demand for professional timber flooring installation – sand and polish.
Consultation & Onsite Visit
Documentation – Consultation – followed up by a professional install & sand and polish result in customer satisfaction.
When called up to quote a particular job, each item or product is named and priced, so that client can visually see what it is they are purchasing. With quotes that just summarise a job, the client should be asking the question, what type or name brand am I purchasing?
At the onsite visit, Westech Flooring will be gathering information about the area, ventilation and most importantly is the dwelling suited for timber flooring. Houses that have carpet or other types of flooring, the product may have to be partially removed so that the slab or substrate can be viewed. This is important with concrete slabs as they are not all the same, and the best suited vapour barrier will be determined. Finally the move in date will be discussed so that a start date can be determined.
Westech Flooring installs all timber flooring systems with precision.
