Warehouse mezzanine floors look great and allow you to extend your living space or office fit-out. But getting the perfect contractor for your needs – one that knows exactly what’s required to ensure your mezzanine floor project is a success – requires a little research and savvy enquiries.
To help you make the right decision, here are a few questions to ask and things to be on the lookout for in a mezzanine floor company:
- How big is your project? Start by considering your project’s size and scale. If you’re after a mezzanine for a large residential or commercial project, you’ll want to check your construction company has done similar work before and has the case studies to prove it. For home projects, a smaller mezzanine floor company should suffice.
- What experience do you have? You don’t necessarily need an architect to design your mezzanine floor – many mezzanine floor companies can help you with a customised design that works in your space because they understand what’s required to take your project from concept to completion. Ask to see examples of their previous work and, if possible, get a tour of any that meet your specifications. Glowing references from happy customers are a must, plus it’s also a good idea to ask around about any companies you’re considering – a trusted building contractor should be able to search their professional networks to help you find the right fit.
- What will it cost and what’s included? Cost is an essential factor in choosing a mezzanine floor company. You'll want to see complete transparency about overall expenses before they begin work. There should be no hidden costs, and your chosen company should offer a quotation for free – after they've scoped your project fully. It also shows they're confident in their work and prices – a big tick that shows you’re likely to get a good deal.
- Do you have your own installation team or do you contract out? A mezzanine floor company that has an in-house installation team is a bonus – you’ll want them to take care of your construction from start to finish, preferably including any electrical or plumbing needs. Companies that can handle everything in-house are best because your project will run smoother. It also means your costs may be lower because there are no unknown costs from sub-contractors as the project gets underway.
- How do you ensure site safety? Warehouse mezzanine floors can be tricky, and safety should always be paramount. Does your chosen company have full insurance for their projects and workers, so you don’t have to worry about site safety? Find out how they plan for safety in all potential situations and you’ll have added peace of mind during the construction phase and beyond.
