Obtaining a few quotes may sound like a lot of work but you can expect to spend less than 20 minutes with a contractor to obtain a quote (assuming you already know what type of flooring you’re going to with). Most flooring contractors in Phoenix will help you select, and purchase the flooring for your project.

References & Referrals
Check out what others have said, and have to say about the flooring company.
If you are using internet lead services (such as HomeAdvisor, Thumbtack, Yelp! etc.) you can obtain user reviews and references from these sources. Keep in mind, these lead services are middle men, they don’t have their own contractors; as a result these services will charge the contractor to obtain your contact information. The fees charged to the flooring company is around $30 - $50 on average.
