Should you install new flooring on your own or hire a flooring contractor? This is a question many homeowners grapple with when renovating their homes or making additions to it. Although many flooring options seem very easy to install, you may find that hiring a professional will actually save you money in the long run. Overall, hiring a professional will almost always come out to be the best choice.


Picking the best flooring option may seem like the biggest hurdle facing you right now. However, after you have chosen the right tiling, vinyl, or something else that would work best for your home, you should ask yourself the following three questions before deciding whether or not to install the flooring on your own or hire a flooring contractor. Here they are:

  • Do you have any experience installing flooring? You may be a splendid DIYer, with many home projects under your belt, however, flooring is a whole other ballgame. It is highly skilled work and flooring contractors train for years to get to where they are now. With many flooring, it can be easy to assume that it is easy to install. The thing that separates DIY installations from leaving it to the pros is the level of craftsmanship and longevity of the flooring.
  • How Important is your peace of mind to you? Some individuals, even if they have some or extensive DIY experience would rather not risk it when it comes to something so permanent as flooring. Professional flooring contractors are experienced and have the skills and training necessary to deliver a quality finish product, something you will surely be satisfied with. You, on the other hand, particularly if this is your first time doing something like his, may not be able to come up with a solution that works for you.
  • How are you with time? A project like installing flooring is very extensive and takes a lot of time. While you may have other resources, time may not be something that you possess in abundance. Maybe you need to move into a home quickly or are simply too busy at work. The fact is that a project of this magnitude will take a contractor much less time, allowing you to focus on things that are more important.
