There are plenty of benefits to installing new floors.
You might be wondering if installing new floors is really worth it. A lot of time, energy, and cost go into installing a new floor. However, there is a return on that investment. First of all, if you choose a quality flooring product that is suitable for your home, it can raise the value of your house. In addition, there are psychological benefits to installing a new floor in your home. You will be happier and more relaxed walking into a home with beautiful floors. Plus, you’ll be proud to show it off to your friends and family again!
Choosing the right type of flooring is essential.
Something to keep in mind when installing floors is choosing the right type. There are many options to choose from including carpet, hardwood, laminate, tile, and vinyl. Well, you wouldn’t want to put carpet in a bathroom, would you? That one seems obvious, but there are other guidelines you should follow. Hardwood floors—and even some laminates—should not be installed in moisture-heavy areas like bathrooms or below grade in basements. When choosing your new floor, be sure to consult the experts at Monarch Carpet to ensure you’re choosing the right type.
Make sure you have all the materials and tools necessary to install the new floor.
The next step after choosing the floor is to make sure that you have everything you need for installation. For tile, that means mastic, grout, spaces, grout floats, and more! For hardwoods, it means tar paper, a nail gun, nails, a measuring tape, and chop saw. Be sure to consult with a flooring expert and watch a few tutorial videos to make sure you have a good idea of what you’re doing and then head to your local hardware store to stock up!
