Correctly installed floors go a long way toward the appearance, performance, and longevity of a floor. Installation is as necessary as the product itself, and some take it further by saying it’s even more critical. While it’s always tempting to save money by doing it yourself, a quality installation will save you time and money in the long-term and ensure a gap-free, squeak-free, even floor without broken tiles or uneven luxury vinyl seams. Here's why you should always hire a professional from Carpets With a Twist, your flooring store in Red Bank, NJ.
Professionals will make sure the subfloor is prepared well in all cases
Even a simple floating floor requires that subfloors need mainly be clean, dry, and the level will need a little TLC at times. If the subfloor isn’t level, that will travel up to the surface floor, the one you will see, and be imbalanced with some needed sanding. With the more complicated solid hardwood tongue and groove, moisture readings will need to be taken during the process to ensure that water doesn’t travel up and create warping, cupping, and crowning.
They know how to enhance
Laminate flooring is highly water-resistant, but we know how to make it almost waterproof with caulking and special extenders, and we’ll make sure your carpet lies flat with proper stretching that doesn't result in wrinkles and rolls. Tile is difficult enough because it’s so heavy and laborious, but the layout needs to be precise since there’s no going back for redos, especially around those awkward corners.
Professionals also have the experience to foresee potential problems and then handle them if they do occur. It will also protect your warranty; many manufacturers have strict guidelines on how their product should be installed. When not followed, damages, even those that are no fault of the homeowner, are not covered.
