Some estimates are itemized and some are a comprehensive paragraph of the scope of work with a total. Just remember that estimates are just that - ESTIMATES. All things that are promised should be included in the final contract to you.
Cost of job
This will vary depending on the expertise of the contractor, quality of work, products used and the job that will be done. Research your needs first and educate yourself on the products and then get quotes from a couple contractors that use those products.
Warranties and guarantees should always be included on the final contract. All questions regarding what to expect should be discussed in detail between the customer and contractor to avoid discrepancies.
Ask your contractor for a portfolio of information, specification sheets or brochures on the products that you will have applied on your floor. Again, it is very important to be educated on the products used on your investment. You can find all of Bona's spec information on our professional Website: www.bona.com
If someone in the home has chemical sensitivities, ask your contractor for a copy of the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for all the products being used on the floors. Your physician can then advise accordingly. Bona provides MSDS for all of our products on our professional Website: www.bona.com
Is there enough wood on the surface?
This is determined by the contractor assessing if there are areas to look at to determine the wear layer. This can be measured by looking at vents or transitional points to other flooring in the home.
