The per­fect foot­note from ATFA

Australasian Timber - - FRONT PAGE -

Build­ing, ren­o­vat­ing or up­grad­ing can be a daunt­ing process, and many peo­ple don’t know where to be­gin when find­ing the right con­trac­tor for the job. The most com­mon av­enues is re­fer­ral from a friend, rec­om­men­da­tion from a builder, ar­chi­tect, de­signer or even from an ad in the lo­cal pa­per. But, who are you hir­ing, how pro­fes­sional are they and what is the qual­ity of their work­man­ship? The Aus­tralasian Tim­ber Floor­ing As­so­ci­a­tion (ATFA) is the best op­tion to find the per­fect pro­fes­sional for your project. Re­cently the ATFA launched a fan­tas­tic new web­site geared to help con­sumers with all as­pects of tim­ber floor­ing. This great new ini­tia­tive found at www.floor­ will take away all the guess­work and help alleviate the stress of find­ing the right con­trac­tor for the right job! Floor­ can help out with not only find­ing the cor­rect con­trac­tor but give you some great ideas for floor­ing in­spi­ra­tion and di­rect you as to how to get the cor­rect ad­vice and who to speak to. The ATFA also has these great tips when look­ing for the per­fect pro­fes­sional --- Look for an in­door or out­door spe­cial­ist de­pend­ing on the job; if it’s an in­tri­cate job find some­one who spe­cialises in that area or has worked with that type of prod­uct be­fore. Make sure they are ATFA ac­cred­ited, this means you will be hir­ing one of the best in the busi­ness and it gives you the peace of mind that you have a fall back for queries if any prob­lems arise. Get mul­ti­ple quotes but re­mem­ber the cheap­est isn’t al­ways the best op­tion, and al­ways com­pare fairly by check­ing what is and isn’t in­cluded. You don’t want to be hit with an­other bill later or hav­ing to find an­other pro­fes­sional to fin­ish off the job. For more in­for­ma­tion, to be­come a mem­ber or if you re­quire any ad­vice please call the ATFA on 1300 361693 or visit www.floor­
