What Builders and Developers Need in a Flooring Supplier

Diamond Beach condominium flooring contractorI’m so often asked by new builder clients, “What makes your company different?” I can understand why they are asking the question, as they’ve probably been around the block with flooring contractors. Many retail flooring suppliers are used to dealing directly with homeowners and their retail clientele, whose needs are very different from a builder or developer’s requirements. What makes Design Floors different is our vast experience in all types of developments – from single family detached neighborhoods to multifamily condominium and apartment complexes, right down to active adult neighborhoods including clubhouse and lifestyle amenities, we’ve floored them all! But to be more specific, here are a few reasons we are different from other flooring companies.

Dedicated Sales Staff To Assist Your Design Team

We understand that your in-house design team has their work cut out for them when it comes time for homebuyers to select the finishes for their homes. We have dedicated sales representatives that can provide quotes for any custom requests your homebuyers may make during these selections. From tile patterns and inlays to custom upgrades, we can provide quick turnaround on pricing so that your team can finish the selections in a timely manner. We know margins on the color selections is important, so we work hard to provide pricing that will help you increase your margin, while providing your homeowners with the products and options they demand for their new homes.

Field Supervisors and Installers

Our field installers are available 24 hours per day, seven days per week, as your demand requires. When it comes to inspections, certificates of occupancies, and other closing deadlines, Design Floors knows that time is of the essence. In some cases we can be ready for installations within 24 hours when the need arises. Our field installers do what needs to be done to get the job complete, allowing you to close on time.

In addition, we will provide a field supervisor to oversee your project within the tri-state area. This supervisor can provide pre-inspections as required and will follow up with post inspections to be sure the job is complete and correct. Our field supervisors can trouble shoot and provide solutions before a project becomes an issue. This can make a huge difference in the successful completion and closing timeframes.

Key Point of Contact/Owner Relationship

Every business has an owner, and sometimes you need to be able to reach the owner of a company you are doing business with. Design Floors is owner operated and has been for three generations, with over 50 years experience in helping our builder clients manage flooring, from selections through closing for any type of residential or commercial project. I play a direct role in the day-to-day operations and am always available for a consultation or project review.

When it comes to selecting, installing, and servicing flooring for a residential or commercial construction project, Design Floors is your answer. Working with a company that has an in-depth knowledge of the construction process, as well as the ability to provide the service and support needed to complete and deliver properties on time, is critical to most of our developer clients. Our understanding of these critical needs has led us to create a comprehensive builder and developer program that is unique to our company. We look forward to providing the best service possible to support your efforts in providing quality housing throughout the tri-state area. Contact us today for all of your flooring needs.
