Flooring installation - Floor Coverings International MadisonIn Madison WI floor installation can seem like quite the 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 might be considered do-it-yourself floor installation – assuming above-average DIY skills. Most of these flooring options have adhesive or interlocking parts that make adjustments relatively easy.  However, it is important to ensure flooring installation is done correctly even with these easier to install flooring options.

On the harder end of the floor installation spectrum are carpet, 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. Most homeowners decide it’s best to leave advanced flooring installation to the professionals instead of learning a new skill and trying to obtain the look of professional flooring installation.

In the end, it’s important to know that not all DIY homeowners are of equal ability or skill.
