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. |
You...more than any other group will
understand the need for our services...|
Do you ever feel like the owner of the flooring
company makes more money on your investment properties than you do?
Flooring companies just love renters. Some renters
are blessed with the ability to totally destroy brand new carpeting
in just a few short months. Amazing isn't it that you can live in
your home for years and the carpet still looks like new and a renter
can make it thread bare in no time at all. I used to think that my
renters cleaned the carpets with a wire brush or a buffer!
Do you ever wonder why this happens...
If you've owned rental property for a while you
may have noticed that you can call the same flooring company to
carpet a unit that they just carpeted two years ago...and it takes
MORE CARPET this time! The apartment didn't grow...so why is the job
bigger this time? If you have us measure your properties that will
NEVER happen again. I'll bet some of your apartments might even
SHRINK a little bit from the last time they were done!
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!
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,
flooring 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. In order to do a professional
installation job the arrows or markings on the back of carpeting
MUST all run the same direction if the carpeting in any two areas
connect or "touch" each other.
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%.

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
You will have piece
of mind knowing that we are an unbiased third party with no
financial interest in your flooring job. We don't care if you need
10 square feet or 10,000 square feet. We are there to calculate the
exact amount of floor coverings you need to do the job...and not one square inch more!|
Why not have ALL of your units
measured...or at least have one of each style in each complex (if
they are identical units) done? You can re-use our measurements each
time you need floor coverings AND you can give the reports to the
new buyer when you sell the property.
Unless the walls are moved the
measurements should never change!
To have each unit
measured costs $75.00 but I'll bet you'll save more than that on
your next 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.
