Floors are one of the most important components of interior design. A properly installed floor can make a room look larger, complete a decorating scheme, and raise the value of your home. However, proper installation depends on material expertise and flooring industry tools. Keep reading to learn why flooring installation is best left to the pros:
- Hardwood Problems: Hardwood installation can be completed using one of four methods. However, lack of professional insight makes it difficult to determine if nails, staples, glue, or floating is the best strategy for hardwood installation. Additionally, each of these installation techniques requires the use of specialized tools. Investing in these items for a one-time job is probably not worth it when compared to a guaranteed, professional installation job.
- Tile Issues: It is difficult to hide mistakes made during tile installation. Uneven grout lines are quick to reveal a poor-quality DIY job. Furthermore, tile materials are prone to breaking if handled improperly. Choosing the professional route ensures your tile materials are quickly and carefully positioned. Professional tile companies also have access to wider range of tile materials than the average homeowner.
- Carpet Challenges: When you decide to install carpet yourself, you may unknowingly be voiding the new carpet’s warranty. This fact puts DIY installers at an even greater disadvantage if mistakes are made. Alternatively, work performed by a reliable professional can maximize the life and performance of your home’s new carpet and keep the warranty in good standing.
- Laminate Concerns: Adding laminate into your home is very complex. The need for underlayment, trim materials, transition pieces, and moldings make the laminate job overwhelming for most homeowners. Improper installation also puts laminate floors at greater risk for moisture and foot-traffic damage. Eliminate these risks by trusting a practiced technician.
