Measuring a floor doesn’t seem difficult at first. Customers often ask, “Can’t I get a tape measure and do it myself?” Some might say yes, you can. But we often recommend against do-it-yourself solutions when it comes to home improvement. It is important to get the most accurate measurements in your home to prevent mistakes and trouble later.
Some of the reasons to choose a professional service are:
• Order the right amount of material. If you are ordering new flooring, you need to know exactly how much you need. Measurement allows you to plan ahead and budget yourself. If you order too much or too little material, you are setting yourself up for a host of problems later.
• Save money. No one wants to spend more money than they have to. That is why it’s important to get the right in-home measurements. You want to prevent hefty fees or buying materials that you don’t actually need. It’s usually impossible or difficult to return used or opened products-- just avoid the issue altogether with a professional technician doing the work for you.
• Save time. You will also be saving time. Our technicians know how to work fast and get you to the next step of your renovation sooner. Even an entire home can be measured in a reasonable amount of time. Avoid the issues of buying the wrong materials that you then have trouble returning.
• Get accurate measurements and clear reporting. We organize all of your in-home measurement numbers into a neat report. This makes it easy to fill out material orders. It also gives your installers and builders something to refer back to while they work. We can even measure around sharp corners and oddly shaped rooms, like those with nooks.
