Home Buyers

 
Are you shopping for a new home?

Buying a home is rarely the exciting experience it's supposed to be. After you go through the tedious process of getting pre-approved for your financing like your real estate agent suggested, you normally go out into the market and find out that home prices for your dream home are a lot more than you bargained for.

So most people scale back on the price range they are looking to buy in and find places that typically need some work to make them meet their standards. And when a home needs work the floor coverings are usually not in good condition. Even if the condition isn't bad the color and style won't match your furniture or lifestyle.

That's where we can help!

Shopping for and buying floor coverings can be a very frustrating experience because it's hard to compare estimates without knowing exactly how the job was figured. Most people just look at the "bottom line" price without understanding where that price came from...but not anymore!

Everything on this website is designed to educate you about the flooring buying process and the all of the variables that effect the price you end up paying for the job.

In the perfect world, if you have more than one flooring company give you an estimate on a flooring job, they should each come up with the exact same amount of material you need to do the job. Well, the world isn't perfect!
Rarely do any two companies agree on the number of square feet or yards needed. Part of the reason can be that one company may inflate their estimate to cover miscalculations more than another but more than likely they are not figuring the job in the same manner.

Most people are not aware of the fact that each type of flooring material (carpeting included) has a "grain" or "direction" to it. There are arrows or markings on the back of carpeting that MUST all run the same direction if the carpeting in two areas connect onto each other in order to do a professional job.

The direction the carpet is laid out can greatly influence the amount of carpet it will take to do the job. If you have rooms that are wider than the carpeting, they must put seams in the carpet to fill those areas. Jobs can be estimated using more seams and less carpet or the other way around. Changing the direction can change the amount of flooring you need by 10% to 20%. If you want to see an example of how you can take the exact same area and get totally different results...Click here!

There is another problem with having your floors measured. The person sent to do the measuring is either the owner or an employee of the flooring company, a commission based sales person or the flooring installer who will do the installation if they get the job. They are going to make more money for themselves for every square foot of material you need so the bigger the job...the larger their paycheck.

If you hire an independent, unbiased third party with no financial interest in your flooring job, you can be assured that you will get an estimate of what you need...and nothing extra added.

You can add the cost of all new floor coverings into the home purchase...
Most buyers (and a few real estate agents) aren't aware of the fact that in most areas the cost of new floor coverings can be factored into the value of the home by the appraiser if you have an EXACT estimate on the cost of the flooring job. That means  you can include the cost of all new floor coverings throughout your new dream home in the purchase price.

Wouldn't it be nice to move into your new home and not have to deal with the floor covering issue after you are all moved in?

To have your house measured costs $75.00 but I'll bet you'll save more than that on your job!

If you have our written estimate in hand, you can go to ANY flooring company and get an exact estimate to do the job. You can then go to floor company number two and do the same thing. You can go then ask if they will beat the first company's estimate (if their estimate is lower). Then it's off to flooring company number three. Most flooring companies have policies that they will beat their competitions best price. So by using our flooring analysis in this manner you can be assured you are paying the lowest possible price for your flooring job. And we will ALMOST guarantee that you will save more than the $75.00 fee we charge.
