When people decide to have hardwood floors installed in their home, they have a difficult choice to make: self-installation or professional installation? It can be a difficult decision to make, but the right choice is almost always to hire a professional installation team. Not only could they actually save you money, but they come with several important benefits that are worth what they cost.
A lot of people think that choosing to install their hardwood flooring themselves will save them money, but that often ends up being false. Hardwood flooring installation requires specific tools in order to do it right. The average person will either need to buy or rent these tools in order to install their new flooring, and those costs will rack up fast. Many self-installers also end up spending more money to fix mistakes because they don’t have the knowledge and experience required to ensure that the job is done correctly and precisely.
A professional hardwood flooring installation team has the expertise and experience to do the job right the first time. All of that knowledge isn’t for nothing. Professional installers can work with precision and deal with just about anything that comes their way. They’ll know how to pull up the old flooring without causing damage, the best methods for installation based on what’s below your floor, how to make precise measurements and cuts, how to handle oddly-shaped areas, and other critical skills.
What takes a professional team one or two days can take a self-installer weeks or months to complete. Working for weeks or months is a long time to manage a major project and deal with an incomplete floor. This timeframe is extended every time a mistake is made or the area is damaged. Professional installers are motivated to do the job correctly and efficiently so you won’t have to deal with installing flooring over an extended period of time.
When you attempt to self-install hardwood floors in your home, they aren’t under warranty. Any mistakes you made, or damage you do to your floors or home are up to you to fix, which is why it can cost so much more to attempt to install your new hardwood floors yourself. When you have the work completed by a professional installation team, the floor will be under warranty for a period of time. This ensures that, if a mistake was made, the company will make it right for you.
