You can buy most flooring materials and install them yourself. However, it’s not always as easy or straightforward as the YouTube videos make it. There are many benefits to hiring a professional flooring installation company to install your new floors.
They Know Flooring
First, when you work with a flooring company, they know the best brands of flooring. Not all engineered wood flooring or laminate flooring is the same. They can help you choose the right material that will give you the look you want and last based on your family and lifestyle. You’ll likely need more than just flooring too. A flooring installation company can measure the moisture in your slab or subfloor and recommend solutions so you don’t end up with cupping or peeling.
Every flooring purchase requires overage. Depending on the material and installation pattern, that can range from 10% – 20% extra material over the square footage of the room. Because a professional installer knows the material, they are often more precise, which means you’ll likely need less overage than if you were to go the DIY rout.
Time & Tools
How busy are you? When will you have time to work on your new flooring installation? Do you need to buy or rent tools to properly install your new floors? Most flooring installations of pre-finished materials take about a day when a professional flooring installation company handles the install. If you will work on the project over days or weeks, renting equipment will cost as much as buying it plus you’ll still have to purchase supplies in addition to the flooring itself. Once you factor in everything you’ll need for your DIY flooring installation, you may find that the time and cost combined make it well worth paying a professional.
