This is also a good time for Carpet Giant of Houston, TX to indulge in some bragging rights, because we’re the experts when it comes to both residential and commercial flooring installation.

A good flooring installation is as important as the product itself, because that is what will keep your floor looking great and behaving properly at all times. It’s tempting to think that you can save money by doing it yourself, but it may actually end up costing you more in the long-term.

When deciding on a professional flooring installation, keep in mind that:

1. Each type of flooring is different, requiring different techniques and tools. It is critical that the person who installs them is fully educated and up-to-date on all the latest information. For instance, carpet installers will need to be extremely precise when cutting, so that the seams are lined up properly, and so the carpet doesn’t “lift” off the wall. A professional flooring installation will avoid those “rookie” mistakes that can easily be made, and will end up costing you dearly.
2. If the floor isn’t installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions, mistakes, that are no fault of the homeowner, may not be covered in the warranty.
3. You’ll end up paying full retail for the installation materials when doing the flooring installation. Since professionals install in bulk, they pay bulk prices.
4. Floors aren’t perfect squares or measurements; there will be oddly-shaped rooms, tricky cuts, uneven subfloors and more that will need to be dealt with.

Don’t let the name fool you. Carpet Giant also carries a large inventory of tile, hardwood, luxury vinyl, sheet vinyl, and laminate. The company services Houston and surrounding communities.
