You’ve decided to buy new flooring, and you’re eager to get your carpeting or hardwood installed in your home. Like many homeowners, you might be debating between hiring professionals to install your flooring or going with a do-it-yourself (DIY) approach. At S&G Carpet and More, we recommend that you always work with professional installers unless you have significant experience in the home construction and improvement industries. Our flooring professionals will be happy to help you understand the costs involved with installation and will work with you to schedule the services that best meet your needs.
If you’re buying new flooring, you might be concerned about the costs involved with installation. Maybe you’re thinking of trying to install the flooring yourself or you’ve asked a friend or neighbor to help. While some DIYers may have the experience and knowledge needed to install floors, most homeowners will find that it’s simply more of a headache than necessary to install floors on their own.
Many homeowners mistakenly believe that they’ll save money by installing flooring or carpeting on their own. Unfortunately, this is usually not the case. You’ll need to buy special tools to install flooring, which can cost just as much as hiring professional installers. If there are any accidents or problems during the installation process, you likely won’t be covered by insurance. Professional installers are insured so that any damages to property or injuries will be covered. Remember that flooring warranties may also be voided if you choose to install flooring yourself instead of trusting licensed pros to do so on your behalf.
