Whether you have recently purchased a new home, or are ready to upgrade the flooring in your current home, there are many questions you must ask prior to making your very important 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 these important flooring questions to ask before purchasing.
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 the 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.
Our showroom is vast and our team of experts is available and willing to help you decide on color, style, and patterns, all within your budget. We encourage you to take home a few samples to best envision the new look of your home.
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.
In fact, feel free to talk to anyone of our experts at Scottsdale Flooring America to discuss bold, beautiful, and creative decisions for your home.
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 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 the ticket items you will be charged for.
Additionally, choosing to buy from ‘big name’ corporations can result in hidden fees all over the place. Working with a locally owned business like Scottsdale Flooring America ensures the highest-quality materials and customer service.
