Common Mistakes People Make When Purchasing And Installing Flooring And Window Treatments
Purchasing and installing flooring and window treatments can be very time-consuming, especially for an entire home. When buying blinds or installing flooring, you should definitely consider hiring a professional. This will save you time and energy in the long run. Because of your lack of experience, you might end up making a lot of mistakes in the process, especially when it comes to measurements. To help you avoid some basic errors that could prove to be costly, C & J Shutters, Blinds and Flooring has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when purchasing and installing flooring and window treatments.
1. Searching for a handyman or someone cheap
Even with a handyman license, a handyman is not the same thing as a company with a contractor’s license specializing in installing that product. If your product is not installed by a specially licensed contractor, the product warranty is void. You have no recourse if there are problems. If your installer does not have worker’s compensation and a business license, you are carrying all the liability.
2. Looking for the cheapest deal
The cheapest estimate is, most of the time, not the best deal. When you get several quotes, make sure you are being quoted for the exact same product. Online stores are attractive to buy from because their prices are so low, but you often get contract-grade products and no help when issues arise. It is always best to purchase from a brick-and-mortar store. You can see and feel the product before it is purchased, and if there are issues down the road, you have a business you can walk into to discuss.
3. Not understanding warranties
It is important to understand warranties and what they really mean. Most of the time, a warranty will not pass on with the product, rather it is tied to the customer who has purchased the product. Also, when you are told it is a lifetime warranty, that is true on some portions of the product, however, most parts of products are limited lifetimes. When purchasing a carpet, you must follow the manufacturer’s directions in caring for your carpet to ensure you receive the full warranty.
