The final, yet sadly neglected, tip to avoid resin flooring headaches relates to the process of “closing off” a project effectively. This essentially involves compiling all the available records for future reference; something that will be invaluable in the event of a dispute, further works on the floor down the track or even for basic clarity on the installation itself should ownership change hands etc.
Now, that’s a keeper!
Perhaps the grey area surrounding what should actually be kept in such records explains why it’s rarely done. Some examples of what to keep include – a copy of the original resin floor specification, the approved quote, any variations charged, photos (of the approved sampleboard and all stages of project progress) and relevant warranties.
By collecting and filing all this information you can be crystal clear on exactly what resin floor was designed and exactly what resin floor was installed at the end of the day. Many projects differ from the specification for one reason or another and if this happens then proof of what changes were made are a must.
Finding resin floor peace of mind
Besides knowing what to record, the hardest part in this process is finding the time in the first place. At the end of a job the inclination on everyone’s behalf is to sign off, exchange payment and quickly move on to the next one. Spending a bit of time locking away all the key paperwork will allow you to really enjoy the spoils of your new resin floor by providing peace of mind and helping to avoid some potential future headaches!
