Why you should always choose a professional to install your flooring

DIY doesn’t come naturally to everyone. Despite this fact, we often let our pride get the best of us and try to complete jobs that should in all honesty be left to the experts. While you might get away with fixing a leaky tap or adding a lick of paint to a wall, some jobs, like installing flooring, should always be left to professionals.

One of the first reasons that you should have a professional install your flooring is simply that it will look much better. Installation experts know how to measure up and install even the trickiest of floors, making sure that everything is tuned to precision. If the room you are working in has roadblocks like uneven subfloors, special patterns or difficult corners then you could end up not only pulling your hair out but also botching the job somewhat.

A key hope of homeowners browsing our showroom is to find what we call a “forever floor” - in other words a floor that will last you a very long time. Quality flooring does come at a price and so often the purchasing decision is agonised over, advice is sought, minds are changed and changed again until the dream floor is chosen. Once you make an investment in flooring, it makes no sense to then try and install it yourself if you have no experience. Wouldn’t you rather have the peace of mind that the flooring beneath your feet has been expertly fitted?

What’s more, while you think you may be saving money by carrying out the flooring installation yourself, you might well not be. You may well have to fork out for not only the flooring itself but also equipment to help you remove the old carpet and any underlying debris, tools such as screws, nail guns and stain and if you do make any mistakes and have to buy replacement materials then that will have to come out of your pocket.

Here at Lincolnshire Flooring, we are proud to employ all of our own carpet and floor fitters. This means that we can be sure that our carpets are fitted to a high standard and if any problems are encountered the customer knows who to contact. Our fitters are trained to exceptional standards with internal and external training. We provide a full site survey, measuring service and aftercare, acting as a one-stop shop for your flooring needs. If you’re looking for new flooring for your home, then call us on 01522 524 374 or visit our showroom on Outer Circle Road in Lincoln.
