Fall is the perfect time for new hardwood flooring or carpet for your Maryland home. When you are sorting through your many installation options, it might be tempting to cut corners and attempt to install your new flooring on your own. However, most customers who end up attempting to install their own flooring end up purchasing a second supply of flooring and hiring the professionals at RPS to take care of the job for them. Why should you hire a professional to install your new flooring?
Preserve Your Warranty
The warranty is very important, especially with pricey hardwood flooring. The manufacturer’s warranty will protect your investment and help you to feel confident in your choice of flooring. However, if you install your hardwood flooring on your own, you might do damage to the flooring and void the warranty. Professional installation will preserve your warranty and protect your flooring.
The Best Possible Result
With carpet and hardwood flooring, the right installation technique is critical to a good finished product. Every type and brand of flooring requires a different installation method, and a professional will be familiar with all of them. A professional can take care of nailing down hardwood flooring, stapling engineered wood flooring, and properly laying down carpeting.
Treat the Wood Properly
Did you know that hardwood flooring needs to be properly acclimated to your Maryland home before installation? Your flooring installation company will take care of the acclimation process and make sure that your wood flooring is ready to install. Acclimation ensures that the wood planks are sufficiently expanded or contracted to the humidity level in your home. If you don’t take the time to do this important step, you will have big gaps in between planks and need to potentially uninstall parts of your flooring.
Get What You Need and Nothing More
Hardwood flooring installation professionals install floors every day, so they go through plenty of materials. When you invest in a professional floor installation, nothing will go to waste and you will only pay for what is used. If you attempt the project on your own, you will be stuck with whatever is left over, including odds and ends and scraps. While a professional might cost more up front, you will save a great deal of money in the long run.
