Expensive, Professional Equipment: Renovations always require tools, though some jobs may call for equipment that's either expensive, or necessitates training. In this instance, laminate flooring doesn't need complex tools, yet a flooring install will require various saws. If you're planning on cutting everything with your granddad's trusty handsaw, forget it. Laminate is a hard flooring, so cutting everything by hand is not an option. In the flooring biz, a radial arm saw is considered an indispensable tool, but it requires training and proper workplace safety.
Your Home-Sweet-Home: The truth is, not all homes are created equal. Homeowners may not realize that their home-sweet-home has uneven floors, and that can be a real headache. Aside from crooked planks, there's also the chance of uncovering odd-shaped transition molding, doorways, closets, and rooms, not to mention scary moisture concerns. It's a whole lot easier to hire a pro to deal with the scary stuff, as they are trained in how to fix these challenges.
For laminate floors that will last many years to come, it's best to leave residential flooring installation to the professionals. When in doubt, visit our Young Interiors showrooms, located in Myrtle Beach and Longs, SC, for invaluable flooring advice.
