When it comes to quality flooring, you invest a lot of time in picking the perfect material for your floors. You research, travel to various showrooms to see samples for yourself, and pick apart every characteristic to find exactly what meets your needs. But there is another aspect that is just as important to the overall success of your flooring venture. Some might say it’s THE most important. That aspect is professional flooring installation.
Installation Best Left to the Professionals
Some homeowners like to turn their flooring into a DIY project. Some materials are easier to install and can successfully be included in that type of project. However, when it comes to true, high quality flooring materials such as hardwood, stone, tile and carpet, there’s just no reason to take matters into your own hands.
One thing that makes DIY installation of these materials a bad idea is that some manufacturers will not honor their warranty unless professional installers install the product. That means, if you give it a try and wind up with a problem months down the road, you’ll be left with a huge out of pocket expense. No one wants to replace their quality flooring more often than they have to, and especially not in this manner.
Another reason these materials are better handled by professionals is that they require specialized tools and a good deal of experience for a job done right. For example, hardwood must be acclimated to the environment in which it’s being placed. Carpeting requires specialized tools, especially for attaching seams and carpeting stairs. Tile is incredibly brittle and can easily be broken, leading to huge oversights in the budget.
Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labor
After all the time and effort you’ve put into finding a great quality floor covering, leaving the installation to the professionals is a feasible next step. After they’re finished, you’ll be left with a flooring you can depend on and one that will easily meet its expected life span.
