Why is it good for me if Newcastle Carpet and Flooring has its own in house directly employed installation teams?
The standard business model of a retail flooring store is to sell the flooring, get the work and then farm it out to subcontracted installation teams. Some subcontractors are very good and do take pride in their work. I used to be one many moons ago, I am biased but I will go ahead and say, I was this type of subcontractor. Unfortunately in my experience this type of subcontractor is in the minority. Most are average at best, sorry to be brutally honest but I have seen some shocking things in my time. Things have been made worse recently as there is officially a skilled labour shortage in the flooring trade so we do have all sorts working their way in.
They are the big 3 but of course there’s also many other things to think about most of which arc back to who are you going to get in your home on the day,
Are they trade qualified,
Are they insured,
Are they trustworthy,
Are they under pressure to rush through your job?
