Flooring options can be a tricky area to navigate when it comes to furnishing your home. There are some things that you can do on your own like picking the specific type of wood, any other materials, carpeting, subflooring, and even deciding what type of finish that you want. But that's half of the job: the other is actually getting it installed in your home.
And that’s where Zothex comes in.
Given some time, patience, the right tools, and a little research online, flooring can be installed by a single person all on their own. If you’re a DIY enthusiast, trying to save some money, or simply want to get a home project done by yourself, installing your own flooring isn’t a bad way to do it.
So why do you need a flooring contractor? In our experience, there are three reasons why you should hire one:
Following instructions online is all well and good, but tutorials can only guide you through so much – especially if you’re inexperienced. If you want the best results possible from your flooring in less time and effort required to do it by yourself, a flooring contractor is your best bet.
Flooring can be as simple as getting new laminate on your concrete subfloor – or as complex as wiring in in-floor heating. These installations are particularly challenging and can spell disaster for your home if you get them wrong. A flooring contractor can help you avoid all of these, and ensure your installation is up to building code.
Typically, the flooring options you can buy at your local hardware store can be limited in terms of material, size, and even quality. If you’re looking for the best floors that can stand the test of time, daily wear and tear, and fit the design of your property, a flooring contractor is likely to have the options you need.

But if you are looking to hire a flooring contractor, you shouldn’t just look for the nearest one to you. Hiring a quality contractor means doing a bit of research yourself, especially if you’ve never contracted a job like this before. Here are some questions you can ask yourself when looking for a flooring contractor:
A: If you’re renovating a room and are planning to use hardwood flooring on it, it’s best to make sure that your subfloor is prepared – but you don’t necessarily have to do that yourself. An experienced flooring contractor can take care of that for you, at an additional fee.
A: While there’s always the risk that a project would run into issues, flooring installations should always have an estimate that you can work with and a fixed price to pay before any work is done. Experienced flooring contractors will never hit you with surprise add-ons and costs.
A: In most cases, the cleanup required after a flooring installation should be handled by your flooring contractor. If there is any debris left after the project, it should be minimal and can be handled with your usual household cleaners/tools.
A: If you’re doing flooring installations on an area that has furniture, cabinetry, or carpeting, it’s advisable to have them removed before the flooring contractor arrives so work can start immediately. You can ask your contractor if they can help you with this during preliminary inspection.
