Once you buy a floor, you aren't home free. It's important to install and maintain your home properly to keep the floor from failing in a few months or years. Low prices don't mean much if a floor fails because the dealer was too busy to educate you. We educate each of our customers on proper maintenance and installation of hardwood flooring.
Our waste percentage for our premium hardwood is 5-7%, while some other companies require 10% waste (or more). We've seen reports from consumers for some leading brands needing 15% or mor - a huge hidden cost! Check out our true cost comparison and be sure to research waste requirements for other products.
While per-square foot the prices might be cheap from some vendors, the extra waste can add hundreds of dollars to your total cost.
