Choosing a Flooring Installer is as Important as the Flooring You Select

According to flooring industry trade groups, the average flooring buyer spends an average of 11 hours searching for the perfect floor for their needs and less than an hour selecting their installers.

You have a lot of choices when it comes to new flooring ? material, style, color, and more ? really, the only limit is your imagination. Whatever flooring you choose for your home, who installs it makes all the difference.

Professional installation is the key to getting the best look and longest wear from hardwood, luxury vinyl planks and waterproof laminates. Flooring is such an important part of your home because it?s large, visible, and receives a ton of use. So, if you leave anything in your home to the professionals, flooring should be at the top of your list.

Doing it yourself may seem like a great way to save money (and they do make it seem so easy on the home improvement shows), but the time spent and risk of mistake can be costly. This also goes for warehouse or discount dealers; they often take shortcuts or use inexperienced installers, so achieving the look you want or long-term value can be a dicey proposition.

It?s About Experience
A professional flooring installer has years of experience under his belt. YouTube videos may be helpful, but they aren?t going to provide you with the details necessary for completing such a difficult project. Only a professional has the knowledge and experience to guarantee a job well done.

It?s About Results!
Even the most elegant hardwood flooring can appear cheap if the installation isn?t completed properly. Rather than settling for a mediocre installation, rely on professionals to make sure that your home looks its best.

It?s About Getting It Right the First Time
A professional team can ensure that your flooring is installed correctly the first time. You won?t have to spend money on fixing loose ends or replacing mismanaged flooring. Rather, you can enjoy your perfect flooring for years to come.

Protecting Your Investment
Flooring investment is a major investment. Done properly, it can increase the overall value of your property. This is no small consideration.

Your Warranty Depends on Proper Installation

How important is proper installation? So important that your warranty depends on it. Manufacturers know that the best flooring can only perform as well as it is installed. If you forget a step in the process, from removing the previous flooring and prepping your sub-surface properly, to any under-flooring needed, to assembling and laying your new flooring correctly, you may find that amazing 25-year warranty completely null and void. Some manufacturers even specify that the flooring must be professionally installed in order to maintain the warranty.

Quantum Floors Installers Are Experts?

  • Even a small miscalculation can lead to big problems for years to come.
  • It?s vital to know what?s below the surface. Installation techniques can vary depending on whether there?s wood or concrete under foot.
  • This can impact time and cost of installation, as well as the look and feel of a finished area.
  • Cutting and sizing. Properly spacing and placing hardwood, luxury vinyl, or laminate planks can be a huge challenge for a do-it-yourselfer. Professionals know the ins and outs of creating patterns and clean edges with hardwood, and notching flooring around door frames and other obstacles.
