How to determine if the store knows its stuff. Just how do you know if a store knows what it's doing? There are a few things that you need to look for. First of all, if you are looking for the independent retailer to install the product for you, they must come to the job site and measure for you. Diagrams just don't cut it and a good store knows that a 3-D viewing of the job is the only way to finalize a price. Notice how much attention the store pays to transitions between rooms in your home. Are they going to undercut door casings? It is a must. Are they going to pull baseboards or use rounds? Baseboard pulling makes the floor look like the house was built on top of the floor and that is what you want. Depending on the type of baseboard you have, rounds are sometimes necessary, but it should always be discussed. Notice the amount of perimeter detail the measuring technician is noting. If it is just a diagram drawn with no discussion, that's not good enough. Look for another store. You'll immediately notice the difference between stores just by watching the approach taken by the measurer. An expert will be in total control and will ask you all the right questions and discuss the project with you. Is the store going to document who is doing what and who isn't? There will also be certain job preparation issues that will need to be discussed, such as moving appliances, toilets, furnishings, tearing out of existing flooring, etc. These items need to be decided and should be listed and signed by both parties so that there is no confusion. Moonlight installers tend to put all the little detailed preparation directly on the consumer or they charge you extra for it. Alternately, many times the prep will be included in the retailer installation package.
If possible, try buying an extra box or two of discontinued laminate flooring will help eliminate that problem, plus allowing you to have some on hand in case of damage later on. If you have to replace damaged pieces, they will be impossible to find and the appearance of your floor will have to suffer. Not a word in the English language is more definite than the word cheap. If a supplier chooses to use the word cheap in describing their product then you may want to consider again about buying it. Certainly the supplier could choose to use the word inexpensive or even the word value when describing their lower quality line of laminate flooring however using the phrase cheap laminate flooring says a great deal concerning the supplier and none of it is good.
