Hardwood floors are all the rage these days, and for good reason: they are easy to maintain, they don’t stain or get torn up like carpet and they look beautiful. As more people than ever are trying to learn to do things on their own, either as part of the maker culture or to save money, they find that hardwood installation can require special skills that can be hard to tackle on their own. Here are a few reasons why it’s always a good idea to use ServiceWhale hardwood flooring contractors in your New York home.
Avoiding Con Artists
There are a lot of scam artists and con-men out there who are going to try to sell you substandard product, such as soft wood that is masquerading as hardwood, or substitutes like laminate flooring which they claim is “just as good.”
Some even pretend to be professional installers and will bid on installation and collect payment before disappearing and not doing the work. Going with a professional contractor available through Service Whale ensures you get the work you need done with the quality you need.
Hardwood Flooring Contractors for Exacting Work
Hardwood flooring requires very exact and precise measuring, the right tools, and proper sealing. There are a lot of mistakes that can be made. While properly installed hardwood will hold up to a lot of abuse and last for many years, improperly done work will pull up, splinter and be a real pain to maintain. Go with a certified and licensed contractor to make sure that your flooring is put in right with the right measurements, sealing and finish, so you can enjoy it for the life of your home.
Knowing the Material
“Hardwood” isn’t just one type of material. There are many different woods that can be used in flooring, and knowing the right one for the right New York home and the right room in your house is critical to proper installation.
Do you really understand the range of materials, styles and colors out there? Do you know how to determine which is best for the traffic and use your room gets? Can you match the existing wood if needed? Some are sound-dampening. Some have hypoallergenic qualities. Some require more maintenance. Some need the right kind of sub-floor. A qualified Service Whale contractor is going to understand which wood to use for a given project.
Maintenance and Warranty
Professionals stand by their work. They not only install with expert precision, but they can offer service agreements and warranties which carry with them a high degree of peace of mind for you and your family.
