So you’ve decided you’re ready for new flooring in your home. Do you know where you want to buy it from? Do you purchase your new floors from a flooring retailer or a home improvement store? Here are 4 reasons why you should go with a flooring retailer, like Nufloors.
Flooring retailers will have a much larger selection of options for you to browse on their showroom floor. If they don’t have what you’re looking for in-store, they have access to a large online inventory that you can shop. Flooring stores also update their selection more often with the latest, on-trend and popular styles. Looking for something specific? Due to their large inventory, it’s highly likely that a flooring store can accommodate your request.
Flooring retailers work directly with knowledgeable, skilled installers that are licensed or certified professionals. This makes it easy for you! No need to spend time finding your own reliable, reputable installer. Professional installation is key to long lasting floors.
Sales staff at a flooring retailer will be a lot more equipped with knowledge over a home improvement store staff member. A staff member at a home improvement store must be knowledgeable on all things home improvement, from refrigerators, lighting, paint and many more topics. Because they do not specialize in flooring like the sales staff at a flooring retailer, their knowledge will be limited.
A flooring retail staff member will be able to take the information you give them, based on your lifestyle, décor and household traffic, and provide their best recommendation for your needs. They will be able to educate you on the types of flooring to consider based on home décor, attention to climate and where in the home it will be installed. You will receive more one-on-one time with a flooring retail staff member, who will not be in as much of a hurry as a home improvement staff member, who may be responsible for inventory, stocking or cashiering.
Warranty may be biggest pro of going with a flooring retailer. Some home improvement stores may offer warranties to entice you to buy. However, flooring retailers offer excellent warranties for several years along with repair policies. They will also fully explain the product warranty offered by the manufacturer.
It is a big decision choosing new flooring as it is a large investment and you want it to last for years to come. That being said, it is worth investing more time and money upfront to avoid running into common problems down the road that could end up costing you more in the long run.
