Whether you have recently purchased a new home, or are ready to upgrade your Scottsdale flooring in your current home, there are many questions you must ask prior to making your selection. While your first instinct may be to select flooring for its visual appeal, the flooring you select will be one you live with for many years—so you must not be hasty. Turn to the 5 questions below to get heading in the right direction.
Start by considering what you do and do not like about your current flooring. This will help to determine if there are additional ways your new flooring can enhance your life. For example, if you currently have carpet and are considering wood floor, you may miss the cushion under your feet. However, you may enjoy the decorative area rugs and runners you will add throughout your home. A Scottsdale flooring company will help you to fully understand the differences between your current flooring, and the flooring you are considering.
Another factor to take into consideration, is that you do not have to have the exact same type of flooring in all of your rooms. Due to water resistance, your bathroom and kitchen are likely to have different flooring than the rest of your home—but this is not to say that your bedroom, office, or living areas all have to have the same flooring.

Next you want to consider what the weekly cleaning requirements are, as well as what type of detail cleaning and ongoing maintenance is required. For example, if you are switching from carpeting to laminate or hardwood, you will need to invest in some new cleaning tools. Also consider factors such as deep cleaning, refinishing, and protective sealing. Some of these tasks you may choose to take on yourself, while others you may leave in the hands of a professional.
Purchasing new flooring is a major investment, so you must ensure that you completely understand what kind of warranties your flooring comes with. Depending on the type of flooring you select, the warranties will vary greatly. For example, if you allow water to pool on your new hardwood flooring, the water damage created is not likely to be covered in your warranty.
When you watch a commercial on TV, or see an online or print advertisement for flooring—you may believe that the price quoted is the full price of the installation. However, the prices quoted may not include labor, and may only include the most basic of flooring options. For this reason you must make sure that you understand all ticket items you will be charged for.
