Congratulations on the purchase of your new flooring! It’s time to get it installed in your home.
Whether you plan to install the flooring yourself or you are considering having it installed for you, there are a couple of key factors you’ll want to keep in mind.
Decide Who Will Install Your Flooring
- DIY – If you plan on doing it yourself, it makes sense to watch a how-to video like this one from the DIY Network before you get started. It is possible for you to install the flooring yourself, but if this is your first time you may want to watch the tutorial and calculate how much time you have available. The main advantage of installing the flooring yourself is the amount of money you save.
- Hire A Contractor – You may wish to have licensed, insured professionals handle the flooring installation for you. The advantage of this is your flooring will be professionally and efficiently installed, saving you time and the headache of having to deal with unexpected complications in measuring and installing the flooring.
We will be happy to offer you a list of the licensed, insured flooring specialists in your area. These are contractors not employed directly by us, but they have the skills and experience to install your beautiful new flooring for you.
- Friendly Advice – Independent Installers are not employed by us and we cannot guarantee the work performed. Anyone installing flooring or doing any work in your home or business should be insured and licensed.
You can easily confirm a contractor is licensed by visiting the My Florida License site. Click “Verify License.”
We suggest you do not pay contractors until the installation is complete. Paying is the equivalent of accepting the contractor’s work as complete and satisfactory.
