Alright, I have to admit, I skipped out on a project. This wasn’t just any project however, this was a flooring installation. Before I get started, I want to say thanks for the great service to The Flooring Pro Guys and their team. These hardwood floors couldn’t look better. And boy am I glad that I went with real hardwood.

Here is a sample of what I had installed:

Let me tell you, when you see this spread across a large dining room, it is BEAUTIFUL! I love it more everyday I see it.

First off, I don’t know if you have studied much about installing wood floors, but I will tell you right now, it is HARD. Not only that, but moving all the furniture out of the way is back breaking type of work that I just can’t do anymore.

This is exactly the type of project that I warn you about. If your time is worth more than a project will take, sometimes it is worth it to hire out. Plus this is not a cheap project. If I mess up the install through the learning curve, the materials are not cheap. This is not a project where I want to learn from my mistakes. I do not even want to risk making the mistakes!

So that is why I found The Flooring Pro Guys to do this work. A friend recommended them originally. Their website has some good information on it if you want to find out more about them. I wholeheartedly recommend them and their team. When I called them up, they set up an appointment to do a walk through my home and give me a quote on an installation cost. The price was right so I went ahead and scheduled the installation appointment with them. It wasn’t easy picking out the type of wood we wanted. I had an idea in my mind from using Pinterest. However, because I wasn’t sure exactly what look I had in mind, I ended up going through almost all of the samples they had and still felt uneasy about my choice. Luckily, The Flooring Pro Guys were very understanding of my indecision because this is such a big investment for me. However, now that it is installed, I love it!

I am so glad that I chose real hardwood. Nothing can compete with the glorious sheen and rich texture of hardwood. I did see a few samples that were laminate that I really liked, but they don’t compare to the floor I have now. Of course I love making a bold statement when it is appropriate, but this floor blends in until someone takes a moment to stop and admire it. Then they realize the depth and beauty of hardwood. The textures, the patterns, the color, it is hard to reproduce.

As far as the installation, everything went smoothly. I highly recommend this company. If it were any easier, I would be afraid that I might have tried it myself. I don’t feel bad about hiring this team though. The quality of the installation is superb. I can walk across this floor and just admire the beauty of it all. It’s been a relief not having to do something all on my own. I was able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!

If you have been thinking about getting new floors, do it! It can totally change the whole feel of the room. If you don’t have much budget, you can go for a cheaper alternative like laminate or engineered wood, and still have the place feeling like new.
