Why should I have a professional measure my room?
It’s best to hire a professional to measure your home for new floors. A professional can provide a more accurate measurement and estimate, which will help you stay within budget and prevent you from ordering too much or too little flooring material. The amount of product needed will be greater than the actual square footage of your room in case any materials are damaged during installation or there are awkward angles that require specially cut pieces. A professional can spot things like uneven sub-floors, odd-shaped rooms, awkward corners or seam placement considerations that may require special steps, like a customized cut, during installation.
