We understand the temptation to do a floor yourself. After all, it’s just ripping out what’s there and putting the new thing on top right? Wrong. While it can be tempting to do the floors yourself, it can actually be more difficult, more time consuming and even more expensive than hiring a professional Here’s why.
Being in a home without a floor installed is annoying, to say the least. It puts a strain on the whole family and will force you to do a lot of extra work. Professionals don’t just do the work faster, but much faster. We can have your floors done in no time, meanwhile, your work alone could take weeks.
You know the saying, “time is money.” Any money that could be saved from DIY flooring is then spent on the amount of time you take to install the floor. You will get to work fatigued for many days in a row, your housemates will be annoyed, and the stress will certainly pile up.
Installing floors is a skill. It requires a lot of work and experience in home building and remodeling. Proper installation requires expertise that not everyone has. And the skill shows. Even something as simple as putting carpet tiles on concrete requires a professional to look good.
Unless you have a lot of experience in home remodeling yourself, chances are very high that everyone will know your flooring project was DIY. Only a professional can make a floor look like a solid floor. Amateur skill shows, and you don’t want it on a floor that lasts 10+ years.
You might think that DIY is cheaper than hiring a professional, but that’s only true if you yourself are a professional. While professional costs do include the costs of labor, we also have better deals on materials and know the right manufacturers to buy from. We also make fewer mistakes, which cost money. If you break a piece of material you buy, that’s on you to then buy more and fix the issue.
Mistakes due to lack of skill are costly, and the price can very easily become greater than hiring a professional service. So why take the risk for something that’s not even guaranteed to be cheaper? Instead, hire a professional, we’ll work out a payment plan, and make sure you get the floor of your dreams at the budget you want and we’ll get it done quickly.
I don’t know about you but I think that’s worth the labor cost. Call us today at (703) 898-5912.
