Summertime. It’s a time where life is easy, families gather together, kids are home for the summer and the smells from the backyard BBQ make our mouths water. Here at Flooring Depot, this is our favorite time of year because there is no better time to enjoy your largest investment… your home!

Flooring Depot BedroomRe-investing just a small amount of money each year back into your home will not only maintain your investment but will most likely enhance it. Look at today’s market. Housing inventory is low, prices are great and interest rates are low. In other words, the real estate market is hot and that means homes are in high demand. Whether you are in the market to sell now or in the future, or just make your house your dream forever home, your floors will be one of the first things that people notice when they walk through the door.

Whether your tastes run to Luxury vinyl plank (LVP), carpet, tile, or hardwood, the first thing to think about is how you are going to live on your floors. Do you have small kids and need an easy clean-up? Do you have pets and need durability? Do you prefer the softness of carpet under your feet? You could have a variety of needs. But the great news is, no matter the needs, you don’t have to sacrifice beauty and durability with any of our products. One of our experienced associates can help you pick a product that meets all of your needs at a price that fits your budget.

After you have selected that perfect product, you need to decide whether to hire a professional or do it yourself. There are many factors to consider when making this important decision. The biggest decision is not just about saving money. You must be realistic about your skill level in flooring installation. A dollar saved can potentially mean more money spent if the installation isn’t done correctly.

Installing vinyl plank (LVP), carpet, tile or hardwood is a lot of work. Once the old flooring is removed are you prepared for the unknown…what lies beneath? Are you prepared for an unleveled concrete slab, replacing the subflooring or joist? Do you have the necessary tools required for the project? If any of these potential issues worry you, then it is recommended that you leave the installation to professionals. Contractors have the right tools and years of skill and experience needed to make the installation process smooth.

In addition, hiring a professional through Flooring Depot gives you peace of mind knowing your installation is covered under a one-year warranty. If any issues arise, just give us a call and we will take care of it for you. If you choose to tackle installing your floors yourself, Coastal Flooring Supplies has you covered as your one-stop shop for all your flooring supply needs.
