Flooring installation in Story City, IA


Professional flooring installation makes all the difference

There are many floor coverings on the market today that allow for do it yourself installation. At the same time, there are many that aren’t so forgiving in that area. Some flooring material has a bit of wiggle room and small mistakes can easily be hidden or reworked, so that those mistakes are nothing more than a bad memory.

Why not do the installation yourself?

One of the most common questions we hear with regards to this process is, “Can I install this myself?” The answer to that question isn’t as simple as a “yes” or “no”. Some materials are easier to install than others, and can be attempted by anyone with simply some handyman knowledge. Other materials require specialty tools, as well as a certain degree of experience in installing that particular flooring.

Carpet, for instance, requires special tools for stretching, stairs and seam situations, just to name a few. While it may look fine right after the job is done, missing a step here and there, or not properly stretching the flooring, can lead to unsightly bunching, seams that come apart, or some parts that show signs of wear much sooner than others do.

For hardwood flooring, the same kinds of mistakes can lead to other problems. For instance, each piece has to be measured and installed specifically to avoid any problems with expansion and contraction, or humidity. All hardwood flooring reacts this way, but the proper installation can prevent problems that come with a faulty installation. These can include cracking, splitting and warping of the boards, and can result in the need for repair or replacement.

Tile is another material that requires expertise for the proper install. This material is particularly prone to cracking, chipping and breaking, all of which can add to your overall budget should you have to replace those pieces.
