When making the decision to install new flooring in your home, it’s important to consider the time, cost, and outcome you desire. The combination of all three factors will guide you in the right direction as to whether your next floor installation in Sydney can be done yourself, or if a flooring installation quote from an experienced professional in the best option for you. If you don’t know where to start, here are some key points to consider before starting a new floor installation project.
Often it’s tempting to try and save money by carrying out DIY jobs yourself. Not paying someone else for a job which you think you can do may save you some money, but factor in additional things like tools and equipment which you need to purchase, as well as supplies like adhesives, sealer, grout, nails etc which you pay retail prices on – then the costs start adding up.
Professional installers include all the above in the total quote and are confident in the amount they will need from the years of experience, so there’s no wastage or multiple trips to the hardware store. Having a professional take care of something such as floor installation means you’re covered if something goes wrong, which brings us to the next point…
The time involved
If you have lots of time on your hands, the internet is a great place to start – simply search “how to install flooring” and a hundred and one videos and articles on flooring installation in Sydney will appear. If you decide to DIY, be sure to clear your calendar for a couple of days (or multiple weekends). Learning how to install your own flooring for the first time will be a time-consuming experience, with trial and error becoming the best teacher. Your first few tries are almost guaranteed to end in what some would call “failure” – we can call it “rework” (where you may have to rip-up the floor and start over, bearing in mind additional time, costs and materials to add to this mistaking as well).
There’s no doubt that installing flooring takes time (whether on a new house or when renovating), even more so with renovations where the furniture must be moved and old flooring removed and properly disposed of. If you would rather spend the time doing the things you enjoy and in addition to having the floor installation done quickly instead of over countless weekends, hiring a floor installation professional is the way to go.
Most people only want the best for their homes, some strive for perfection, for others “good enough” is enough. If you do not have relevant flooring experience, then it can be hard to know exactly what to do when things go wrong, and how to fix it.
If you want that polished, expert finish, we recommend that you do not waste time and money trying to install new flooring by yourself; get in contact with some floor installation professionals.
