If you think a Big Box store is the best place to shop forflooring, you may want to read this quick blog to find out why a flooring contractor or specialist may be the better choice for your home flooring
A flooring specialist like Affordable Carpet and Flooringbrings the showroom to your home and takes measurements during this appointment. You can drive to the Box Store to see samples, but some stores will ask you to provide all the measurements and details they need. Would it be easier if the measurements were taken by a professional while you are looking at floor samples in the space you plan to use them? Of course, it would!
Working directly with a contractor will save you a trip tothe store and ensure that the measurements are taken by a professional who can clearly see where transition strips may be needed, what odd corners may require additional notes, and how traffic flows through the space.
Another reason to work directly with a flooring contractoris the professional installation team that partner with them. For example, Affordable Carpet and Flooring hires and works with the best flooring and carpeting installers. We verify that they have the experience and expertise for the jobs they are contracted to do. The Box Store has dozens of contracted installers that rotate through their scheduled jobs. They may get the job done, but will it be done to the highest expectations? If not, how easy will it be to correct any problems?
Affordable Carpet and Flooring has installation teams thatdemonstrate high levels of skill and professionalism. We work consistently with the same flooring installers so that our property owners can feel confident that every project we do is done properly and professionally.
Some customers feel that they will spend less by going to a familiar Box Store, but that is not guaranteed. As a carpet and flooring company, we work directly with manufacturers so that we can provide the rebates and discounts they advertise nationally. As a business that maintains our own
warehouse instead of showrooms across Northern Virginia, we can often take advantage of bulk pricing for popular items and share that savings with you.
If you are planning a flooring project, before you get inthe car and drive to the national retailer big box to get your project started, give our specialists a call instead. We will bring the flooring samples to you, properly measure the project, and cost out your project right in the comfort of your own home. No driving required!
