What Certifications Should a Commercial Flooring Contractor Have?

Caution tape at a commercial flooring site What Certifications Should a Commercial Flooring Contractor Have?

A cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is so much more than a lam­i­nat­ed piece of paper or stamp of approval — it’s doc­u­ment­ed proof of a contractor’s com­mit­ment to their craft and ser­vice. When seek­ing a com­mer­cial floor­ing con­trac­tor for your busi­ness, you don’t want to wait to find out whether they’re expe­ri­enced, reli­able, and capa­ble of pro­vid­ing the best results. By look­ing into a giv­en company’s cre­den­tials, you can get an instant glimpse into their worth. In par­tic­u­lar, you want to look for accred­i­ta­tions that speak to the contractor’s pro­fes­sion­al­ism, safe­ty stan­dards, and expe­ri­ence in a range of rel­e­vant ser­vices. Kaloutas is proud to dis­play the var­i­ous cer­ti­fi­ca­tions it has accu­mu­lat­ed over the years, and we’re always reach­ing new heights. Let’s out­line the main types of cer­ti­fi­ca­tions every com­mer­cial floor­ing con­trac­tor should have.

Cer­ti­fi­ca­tions Com­mer­cial Floor­ing Con­trac­tors Need

Memberships/​Certifications with Pro­fes­sion­al Con­tract­ing Associations

If you’re not sure where to begin, see if the floor­ing con­trac­tor in ques­tion is aligned with any broad­er insti­tu­tions. Kaloutas, for instance, is a mem­ber of the Asso­ci­at­ed Gen­er­al Con­trac­tors of Amer­i­ca (AGC), an orga­ni­za­tion that’s been bring­ing con­struc­tion indus­try experts togeth­er for over a cen­tu­ry and pro­vid­ing resources that aid in our efforts to main­tain best prac­tices and ensure safe­ty. We are also a part of Asso­ci­at­ed Builders and Con­trac­tors, Inc. (ABC), a tes­ta­ment to our ethics, integri­ty, and com­mit­ment to qual­i­ty. Kaloutas also car­ries ISNet­world® cer­ti­fi­ca­tion — this reg­u­la­to­ry compliance/​safety qual­i­fi­ca­tion is achieved only by the most trust­ed pro­fes­sion­al ser­vice contractors.

Rel­e­vant OSHA Certifications

The Occu­pa­tion­al Safe­ty and Health Admin­is­tra­tion (OSHA) is one of the largest reg­u­la­to­ry bod­ies in the U.S. Over­seen by the Depart­ment of Labor, OSHA’s reg­u­la­tions affect each and every com­mer­cial enti­ty, ensur­ing that busi­ness­es adhere to the high­est safe­ty stan­dards via peri­od­ic inspec­tions. As such, your com­mer­cial floor­ing con­trac­tor must under­stand and abide by any and all OSHA stan­dards rel­e­vant to their indus­try. At Kaloutas, our con­trac­tors under­go the OSHA-10 Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion course, mean­ing they are autho­rized by OSHA to iden­ti­fy work­place risks and safe­ty haz­ards for each unique job. Our teams also receive con­fined space cer­ti­fi­ca­tion so they’re equipped to safe­ly nav­i­gate tight areas and pre­vent debris from leav­ing des­ig­nat­ed zones.

Spe­cif­ic Commercial/​Indus­tri­al Floor­ing Certifications

The cer­ti­fi­ca­tions men­tioned above are rel­e­vant to all commercial/​industrial con­trac­tors regard­less of spe­cial­ty. Now, let’s detail some of the floor­ing-spe­cif­ic qual­i­fi­ca­tions to look for in your com­mer­cial floor­ing con­trac­tors. At Kaloutas, our team is com­plete with:

  • Cer­ti­fied FloRock installers

  • Cer­ti­fied Dur-A-Flex installers (Appli­ca­tor Train­ing Pro­gram (ATP))

  • Cer­ti­fied Pro­tec­tive Indus­tri­al Poly­mers installers

  • Cer­ti­fied pol­ished con­crete contractors

  • Cer­ti­fied Sikafloor installers

  • Cer­ti­fied Retro­Plate Contractor

  • Cer­ti­fied Koester mois­ture mit­i­ga­tion installers

Each of these cre­den­tials applies to a spe­cif­ic floor­ing appli­ca­tion or com­po­nent of the com­mer­cial floor­ing process. When hir­ing a con­trac­tor like Kaloutas, you can rest assured that we’re able to pro­vide a wide range of floor­ing options based on your building’s unique needs.
