can seem like a big job, but the right preparation can make all the difference.
Perhaps the biggest decision you’ll need to make about floor installation is
whether you want to hire a professional or do it yourself. Your answer will
probably depend on a variety of factors, such as the type of floor being
installed, the size of the project, and the shape of the area where the floor
will be installed.
Flooring such as vinyl tile, laminate and engineered hardwood lend themselves
well to do-it-yourself floor installation. Most of these flooring options have
adhesive or interlocking parts that make adjustments easy.
On the harder end of the floor installation spectrum are solid hardwood,
grouted tile and linoleum. These require precise cuts and special tools that
make them a poor choice for most DIY floor installation projects. If you’re
determined to install them yourself, consider taking a class or two, renting
equipment and wearing proper protective gear. This will help you avoid common
problem areas and injury.
In the end, it’s important to know that not all DIY homeowners are of equal
ability or skill. Before taking chances with such a significant investment in
your home, you’d serve yourself well by calling the professionals at Floor
