Beautiful flooring, whether it is carpet, tile, hardwoods, laminates, resilients (vinyls) or something off the beaten path is an expression of who you are. It sets the atmosphere for your home, for your business workspace or any setting it covers. All spaces have some type of flooring. When you make a decision to put in the flooring you want, it's no small thing - it's an aesthetic investment as well as a financial one. Whether your budget is large or small, you should enjoy the full quality of the flooring you select. But the full quality of your flooring won't be seen in the showroom - it will only become reality when your flooring is installed.
The last person to handle your flooring before it truly becomes yours is your floorcovering installer. For every stunningly gorgeous floor, there is a risk that flooring could end up in a sort of flooring hall of shame. Over the years, any floor can sustain damage from unusual events or normal wear and tear. Those flaws aren't so much tragic as they are facts of life. However, when NEW flooring goes wrong, 90% of the time it goes wrong because of improper installation.
So how do you find a floorcovering installer who knows what they are doing? One who won't disappear in a hazy cloud of a disconnected cell phone number when three months later your new floors develop mystery bubbles where no bubbles should be bubbling?
Glad you asked . . .
