It seems like I’m seeing more and more adds saying, “$99 labor, $39 labor, or FREE labor” from big box stores?? The unfortunate part about each and every one of these ads is that it tends to devalue the importance of the labor when installing flooring. It gives the impression that it is kind of an afterthought or not super critical in the process of flooring. Actually, at the end of the day, stores that use this type of advertising usually just pad the cost of labor in the materials. It really isn’t free. The other issue is that the actual labor will make or break your new flooring……
You can purchase the nicest, most expensive tile, hardwood, carpet, etc., and if it isn’t installed properly then your new flooring just will not look good. When buying furniture or electronics they are assembled at a factory, and you just put them into your house directly from the store. Flooring needs to be manufactured and installed in your home. It is crucial to have trained and experienced installers doing this for you.
Also, most stores offer a 1-year warranty on labor which is nice, but a lot of problems can occur long after that. We offer a lifetime installation warranty, so for example if your carpet wrinkles 5 years after the purchase from Capell Flooring and Interiors, we will come in and re-stretch it for free as part of our warranty.
Labor for flooring is super critical, so when shopping around ask the store what their labor warranty entails, while keeping in mind what ours will cover. Also, please come see us for a FREE design audit. You will not be disappointed.
