Some home improvements are best left to the experts.

With a vast amount of DIY-focused information online, many homeowners confidently embark upon this approach with home projects, intending to save themselves money. During their #DDIY (Don’t Do It Yourself) Flooring Sale, Carpet One Floor & Home, is educating customers that there’s a time and place for DIY, and encouraging them to think twice before attempting this approach with flooring installation.

According to a recent survey from Zillow Digs, a home improvement and design site, nearly 40% of those who have attempted a DIY home improvement project wished they hadn’t. More specifically, of the homeowners who took replacing carpet into their own hands, 43% regretted their choice and 23% went over budget. Similarly, with hardwood installation attempts, 42% of homeowners regretted their DIY approach and 22% went over budget. In summary, these homeowners were not only disappointed in the quality of their workmanship, but their DIY projects ended up being costly – not cost-effective.

There’s an art to the installation of flooring, and for that reason, there are experts. The experts at Carpet One Floor & Home are highly trained and skilled professionals, who offer top quality installation of carpet and hard-surface floors, in a manner that’s both time-efficient and cost-effective.
