What is the Cheapest Way to Do Flooring?

We have been in the flooring industry for over 25 years. So we know a thing or two about what homeowners are looking for. And every year, it is the same — affordable flooring prices. Here are a few tips to help you do quality flooring in the cheapest way possible.

Go With an Affordable Flooring Option

The first thing you need to look at when trying to go with the cheapest way to do flooring is the type of flooring you want. There are many affordable options out there like luxury vinyl, laminate, carpet and linoleum. These flooring choices range from $1 to $6 per square foot. Hardwood flooring runs on the more expensive end. If you are looking for flooring that looks like hardwood, we recommend laminate. When searching for your next flooring option, please window shop around. Different stores will have promotions, sales and pricing on specific brands, styles and colors.

Provide the Flooring Yourself

Some contractors have their own flooring choices for you to purchase. However, these contractors typically increase the price at least double or triple the amount they bought at the manufacturer. You can keep your costs low while working with a contractor if you purchase the flooring yourself. You can shop around at different manufacturers or visit your local home improvement or flooring store. If you do need help finding flooring, we do have a variety of flooring you can choose from — waterproof, laminate, hardwood, carpet and luxury vinyl. And, if you are worried about pricing, we do provide payment plans as well as exclusive website discounts.

Do the Prep Work

Depending on the contractor or the company, they may add additional charges to your flooring installation if they have to do the prep work — moving furniture, cleaning and removing the old flooring. Instead of getting these prices tacked on, you can do this task before your contractor comes around. But also talk to the contractor before hiring them. Some contractors include the prep work into their standard prices, while others do not.

Hire a Flooring Contractor

Contrary to popular belief, hiring a flooring contractor can save you money in the long run. Many homeowners find themselves in a pickle when they install their floors on their own and do it incorrectly. At this point, they end up wasting more time and money trying to find new supplies and start over again. If you do not have experience installing floors or have the equipment and want to get it done the right way the first time, then hiring a flooring installer will be your best chance.

Your home’s flooring should not be treated lightly. Instead, you want to have high-quality work at affordable or fair pricing. And that is exactly what Valor Home Services provides. For more information or to book your appointment, call us today.
