With many new training courses for Microcements available in the UK, it would be essential to ensure that any installer has adequate experience to carry out the required project to the required standards for any Microcement application.

It is highly recommended to use an experienced contractor who specialises in residential installations as the quality of workmanship and attention to detail is essential.

In most cases, some form of preparation will generally be required, which the installer should feel comfortable explaining. Don’t be afraid to ask any potential installers about their experience and how long they have been installing the products to ensure you feel confident of their ability to carry out the works.

Also, ask if they are approved applicators of the products and if the manufacturer would warrant their work and product and systems, especially in the event of any issues.

Examples of Work
Where possible, ask to see examples of work, recent and past installations or even commercial areas undertaken by the contractors, which can be viewed and inspected at your leisure.

Price & Product Quality
When making your enquiries, you may, in many cases, see a somewhat similar pattern in installation costs for the microcement element of works or minimum charges.

Be wary of any cheaper costs that fall outside of this pattens. Some installers may often utilise cheaper and less-quality products and processes or may not have the necessary experience to carry out a quality installation, especially if no examples of work can be provided.

Please appreciate that a quality microcement finish is not a cheap flooring solution, so such prices should reflect that.

A standard installation should take around 4-5 days, so any companies quoting cheaper or quicker options may cut corners essential in providing a quality microcement finish.

Reputation is everything on high-end finishes such as these, so do your homework!
