Tackling a flooring renovation project can be a bit overwhelming. However, there are tips and tricks of the trade that can make your project run a bit smoother. This Flowers Flooring blog will help educate you on the mistakes to avoid during your next remodeling project.
Don’t Buy Cheap Flooring
Home renovations can get expensive, and while you can trim your budget in some places, one place you shouldn’t is your flooring. “You don’t want to select the wrong flooring for your home and be put in the position of having to replace it a few years down the road,” says Will Moore, Regional Sales Manager for Flowers Flooring. “During any home renovation project, you want to select high quality, durable flooring that will stand the test of time. While you may have to spend more money upfront, it can save you thousands in the long run.”
Hire a Professional Flooring Installer
Hiring a professional and reliable flooring installer is just as critical as choosing quality flooring. If you want your floors installed properly, pay for a quality installer. Flowers Flooring always recommends reading customer reviews and reviewing the installation warranty before hiring a company to install your new floors. You want to ensure you’re choosing the right team for your flooring project. Flowers Flooring has hundreds of 5-Star online reviews including Google.
Select the Right Flooring for Your Home
Flooring is a big purchase and Flowers Flooring recommends not selecting trendy products that will go out of style in a few years. Instead, choose timeless flooring that will give you a return on your investment and one that you will still love 10 years down the road. Flowers Flooring also recommends speaking with a flooring professional to find the perfect flooring for your home. Flooring that is ideal for a home with little foot traffic and no children or pets may not work in a home with lots of foot traffic and toddlers that are likely to create stains.
Set a Realistic Flooring Budget
Any home renovation project isn’t going to be cheap, so it’s vital to save for your home improvement project and to prepare for both expected and unexpected expenses that can arise. Don’t just budget for materials, keep in mind installation costs and taxes. Flowers Flooring estimates provide the exact cost of any flooring or tile project and does not have any hidden fees. All costs are itemized including labor, materials, taxes, and any other incurred costs.
Set Realistic Renovation Timelines
Unexpected issues are bound to arise during any renovation project which can cause your finish date to be moved back. While Flowers Flooring strives to meet and exceed customer expectations and timelines, it’s always a good idea to give yourself and your installers extra time.
