Once you’ve chosen your beautiful new timber flooring for your Melbourne home, it’s time for the transformation to begin and you can arrange for your new floors to be installed. So now comes the next big decision – do you attempt installation yourself or get in the professionals? While doing it yourself can save you money, there are a number of benefits when you get in an expert for your timber flooring installation.
1. Saves you time
After reading up on installing timber flooring, it might seem like a relatively simple process. Unfortunately, the reality is that timber floor installation can be an incredibly time consuming and disruptive process which can take a lot longer than you first expected. It’s not only the actual installation of the floorboards themselves which is time consuming – you also need to prepare your subfloor or existing flooring material. Also, once everything is installed then you still have to face the clean up!
A professional installer can not only get your flooring in without a fuss but can also coordinate any other trades as necessary for a hassle free, streamlined experience for you. They’ll be able to have your new flooring installed before you know it so you can enjoy the finished product sooner.
2. High quality final result
If you’ve invested in high quality timber flooring, such as engineered European oak, you want it looking as stunning as possible once installed. When you choose professional installation, you can be confident that they have the necessary skill to carry out a precision job and that proper installation techniques are being used. With poor quality DIY installation, there could be issues such as gaps, peaking and cupping which can ruin the look of your floor. A professional installer will also ensure that the layout of the floorboards is optimal for the best aesthetic result. If you choose a parquetry design, which is a mosaic effect using small wood tiles, it’s definitely best left to an expert!
3. Minimal damage and waste
Timber flooring installation can be a messy business with cutting equipment, adhesives and other materials required for the final product. A professional has installed numerous timber floors before so will get your floor in place without damaging your home or your brand new floorboards. Their skill and precision also mean that they know the exact amount of materials required and treat the timber carefully so there is no wastage along the way.
