The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

There is always someone who can do the job cheaper. It’s true!

We have heard and seen it all in the 40+ years we’ve worked in the flooring and design industry. We’ve seen some of the most horrendous flooring installs imaginable and more often than not, the client usually tells us it was done at a very low price point (and we always notice that additionally, the materials used were of the lowest quality, and the job was rushed with no attention to detail). Sound familiar?

When it comes to your flooring, we can’t stress this enough:

Don’t skimp on quality! Getting new floors should be something you do every 8-10 years, so when you make the investment, do it right the first time or your floors won’t last as long as they should. We’ve seen the same mistakes made over and over again and that is why we wanted to write a blog post about it. Our goal is to educate you so that you are saved of lots of money, time, and heartache!

Quality Is Key:

When it’s time to start looking at purchasing new floors, going with the cheapest (and lowest quality) option will hurt you in the long run. You will get the most bang for your buck if you go with a high quality flooring option from the start.

Work with a flooring expert, not a flooring salesperson:

Our team has a combined 40+ years of experience in the flooring industry. We are not sales people. We are a team of designers and flooring enthusiasts with one goal: to give you the best quality flooring for your budget, that you can enjoy for years and years to come. We will never try to sell you something just for the sake of making a sale like most flooring salespeople you see in all of those TV commercials. We believe it’s so important to take the time to explain to each of our clients WHY we recommend a certain type of flooring and be able to educate you on all of the pros and cons of it.

DIYs Gone Wrong:

We love a good DIY project, don’t get us wrong! But when it comes to installing flooring yourself, consider the damage that can be done without the expertise of a flooring installation professional. We have seen DIY flooring jobs that actually hurt the resale value of a client’s home. Quality workmanship is worth the price.

Flooring is a large investment, and when done right, it can add warmth, style, and value to your home. When it’s done wrong, on the other hand, it can be disappointing, frustrating, and occasionally needs to be redone completely.

It’s crucial to remember that seeking thoughtful advice and paying for quality workmanship and materials is not a waste-it's an investment. 

When it’s time to start a new flooring project in your home or business, please consider working with someone with the knowledge and expertise to give you something that is done right the first time. We can promise that it will prevent you from making common mistakes, experiencing unnecessary heartache, save you money, add value to your home, and create spaces that you and your family can enjoy with pride for years to come.
