Before your next flooring project, you need a good checklist.
🖼️ The big picture: Flooring is often advertised with a price per square foot that does not include all preparation and installation costs.
- Quality of materials greatly impacts price. You want a trusted contractor to help you choose the best flooring for your lifestyle and budget.
When Daphne and Mike came to my home, I saw the attention to detail you want.
📝 Here’s Daphne’s checklist when you’re getting quotes:
🔲 Fee for an in-home consultation?
🔲 Cost if installer moves the furniture?
🔲 Charge for removal AND haul off of old flooring?
🔲 Cost for leveling floor to prep for hard surface flooring?
🔲 Who handles the trim?
🚨 Some installers will only install floors and expect you to find a contractor for baseboards, shoe mold and door trim
🔲 Transitions between different flooring surfaces?
💡 Best to have level transitions and avoid transition strips when possible
✅ For your Smart Homeowner list
- Changing flooring is a major project that can be complex and costly.
- A personalized in-home flooring consultation is key to a great project.
P.S. Something else I liked about working with Daphne and Mike was their mobile showroom — amazing how many flooring samples they fit on that truck! 🤯
