Need a New Floor? Here’s How You Do It

Replacing the floor in any part of your home can sound like a nightmare project. After all, you’re going to make any room where the floor is being replaced pretty much inaccessible while the work is being done. If that’s the kitchen or bedroom, you’ll have to dramatically alter your routine.

Home Floor

However, replacing the floors will mean a much nicer home for you and your family and a higher resale value. Use this guide to learn more about floor replacement and what you should consider doing when it’s time.

Interview Multiple Contractors

Before you can get started on any sort of flooring project in your home you need to interview multiple flooring contractors. You want to make sure that you can communicate clearly with them, but more than that, you want to get a quote on how much it’s going to cost.

Many contractors who work on flooring will also be able to help you pick materials and tell you what works well with your home. Sometimes this advice is essential if you’re not quite sure how you want your home to look when it’s done, even if you know it’s time for a change.

Know Your Budget

New flooring can be pricey, but it doesn’t have to cost every penny in your savings. When you’re interviewing contractors you need to set a budget for labor and materials.

Put 10% aside for overages so you don’t end up without a floor if something goes wrong.
