Why should you hire a flooring installer? Do it yourself is all the rage nowadays. It saves you a bit of money and you can take pride in what you have accomplished. However, some jobs are too large and complex to do it yourself, and you should hire a professional. Unless you are a carpenter or are experienced in working with wood, you should hire a professional to install your hardwood floor.
Here are some reasons why:
The first reason to hire a professional to help you with your flooring project is the design. There are so many options of hardwood flooring available. What type of wood should you use? What color or style of stain? Which direction should the planks be laid? Should you use thin or wide planks? A professional flooring company can help you answer all these questions, and give you options.
The second reason to use a professional flooring installer to install your hardwood floor is the actual installation. You may be able to lay straight planks and nail them to the subfloor, but what about the edges? What do you do if your room is not an exact rectangle? What if a plank needs to be cut to fit into a space? And, speaking of subfloors, do you have one, and is the one you have adequate? A professional hardwood floor installer will be
able to deal with all these issues. And, the installer will have the professional tools needed to complete the job.
The third reason to hire a professional flooring company to install your new hardwood floor is something most people do not consider when they are thinking of doing it themselves. What do you do with your old floor? You cannot just throw it on the curb and hope the garbage people will haul it away. You need to dispose of it properly. A professional hardwood installation company will take the old floor away for you. And, a
professional hardwood installation company will clean up the area after installing the new floor, leaving you free from that tedious chore.
