Ah, hardwood. The simple, natural beauty of a beaming hardwood floor can inspire lust in almost any homeowner. It lasts forever, wears impeccably, cleans up easily, and requires the lower end of maintenance after installation. We can’t say many bad things about it.
However, we can say a few bad things about contractors who cut corners while installing hardwood floors. This is an art and a science, but some contractors don’t even know which direction to lay wooden flooring or anything about wood floor layout patterns. We wish more of our customers were more informed about the importance of quality, care, and attention during this crucial step in the process of a floor renovation.
In this post, we provide an overview of a few mortal sins committed by bad contractors. When choosing a contractor for your flooring, always make sure to ask for references and ask those references detailed questions. These tips may help you to narrow down your search! (And remember—we know a simply excellent contractor right in the Wallingford area if you’re in the market for someone who does CT whole house remodeling and your hardwood floors!)
