Quality, affordable flooring isn’t just hard to come by. It’s one of the most difficult things you’ll have to figure out for your home. That’s because every flooring provider isn’t created equal.
There are a number of flooring companies out there that use subpar materials, don’t invest in professional installers, and skate by hoping that someone will choose them for their low prices.
Then there are others that say they’re affordable, but by the time you’re ready to make your purchase, there’s so many additional charges and fees that they end up being the exact opposite.
So, how can you spot the best combination of price and quality? You’ve got a few options.
Turn to reviews
The easiest way to see who’s really worth their salt when it comes to quality, affordable flooring is to read the reviews. Unlike websites, advertisements, and commercials, reviews can’t mask the truth. Searching Google for the company you’re interested in using should turn up their Google reviews, which should be more than enough to get your investigation started.
Once you’ve gotten a taste of the company’s actual work quality from reviews on Google, consider turning to Yelp as your next course of action. Yelp is solely a review platform, which means you may very well also come across other brands and businesses with reviews that you can pull from as a comparison. What you’re looking for is consistent praise of the work quality, and more than a few mentions of pricing. Again, low cost, high quality flooring is hard to come by, so you’ll almost definitely see it mentioned if you’ve landed on a gem.
Ask for a referral
High quality flooring providers live off of great referrals from clients. If you have a friend or a neighbor with a floor type that you like, ask them who installed it for them. This is an easy way to get perspective from someone that you know and trust, without having to dive deep into the weeds of research. Additionally, the person you ask will be able to share their personal experience with the flooring company, giving you a bird’s eye view into whether or not they’ll be a good fit for your needs.
One of the most wonderful things about being a consumer is the options at your disposal. Every flooring company wants your business, which means you have the power when it comes to getting the information you need to make the right decisions. Shop areound and explore flooring styles you like. Ask for in-house estimates and details. Get exactly what you need to feel confident that the flooring provider you choose is the right one.
