Valuing a Flooring Installation Company
The flooring installation industry is heavily dependent on the construction industry. As the residential construction increases, demand for flooring installation also increases. This includes building new developments as well as renovations on currently owned properties. The Covid-19 pandemic hugely impacted the construction industry. It reduced the demand for commercial builds. Commercial flooring installation was the second-largest market segment in the industry before the pandemic. This forced a shift of focus to residential construction. In addition, interest rates dropped for mortgages increasing consumer demand for residential construction. Hence, now may be a good time to consider buying or selling a flooring installation business. Whether you are planning to sell or buy, it is important to understand the fair market value of a flooring installation business.

Product and Service Mix
Flooring is necessary for every building whether commercial or residential. Flooring installation includes many types of products. This can include tile, wood, laminate, carpet, etc… With the recent pandemic, we have seen a decline in commercial construction and a rise in the residential industry. Companies are forced to adapt to outside influences and modify their business models. Doing so can impact the value of your business. Peak Business Valuation, business appraiser, will help compare your business model’s product and service mix to averages in the flooring installation industry.
Next, having a trained team is one of the most important factors to having a successful business. Flooring installation requires trained individuals with experience. This is important for increased customer satisfaction and repeat business. Most construction companies contract out this type of work. Having a reputable team will work to your benefit when landing construction contracts. Whereas if work is poorly done, you will not gain important contracts such as big contracts for housing developments. A skilled team is a very important success factor and key to maximizing the value of your business. A valuation expert will look at the level of expertise on your team and whether the team is able to manage independently of the owner.
Last, a huge success factor for this industry is gaining recurring revenue. This can be done by creating reputable relationships with builders or other types of contractors. Oftentimes, a builder will partner with other contractors who do different pieces of work a house or commercial building might need. Flooring installation is no different. Creating a good reputation for yourself is a great way to bring in recurring revenue. Recurring revenue decreases time spent marketing yourself to potential new clients or even trying to get your name out there.
Our Peak professionals will take into account the amount of recurring revenue occurring in your profits. For more information read, Growing Your Business Through Recurring Revenue.
