What Should You Expect During a Floor Installation Estimate?

There comes a time when every home needs new flooring. If you’re ready to have new floors installed in your home, you might be wondering how the process works. It all starts with getting a floor installation estimate, so you can figure out how much the project will cost, how long it will take, and other key details. Let’s go over the reasons why flooring estimates are important and what the process looks like.

Why Floor Installation Estimates are Important

Let You Know the Cost of Installation

Whether you need new flooring for one room or your entire house, it’s important to know how much it will cost. Your floor installation estimate takes a few different individual costs into account. There’s the cost of the material itself, labor, and other expenses to consider, such as replacing the subfloor. Getting a written flooring estimate lets you know exactly how much your project will cost.

Clarify the Time Frame and Other Details

Aside from the cost of your project, we’ll figure out other key details during your appointment. The time frame, flooring materials you’re considering, and types of rooms being re-floored are all important for us to know.

Help You Pick a Type of Flooring

Let’s say you’re still deciding between a few different types of flooring. A floor installation estimate can help you decide between the different options you’re considering. Our team can measure your floor and tell you how much it would cost for you to get each type of flooring installed; then you’ll be able to decide which one is right for you. We’ll also be there to provide other helpful advice and information along the way.

The Floor Installation Estimate Process

Schedule an Appointment

First, contact our team to let us know if you’d like to schedule a floor installation estimate. We’ll figure out an appointment time that’s convenient for you. Prior to your appointment, we’ll ask for some information about your project, such as:

  • Which rooms you need refloored
  • What type(s) of flooring you’re interested in
  • When you’d like the project finished by

This information will help you and our team make the most out of your appointment.

We’ll Come to You

We do things differently here at In and Out Floors. Typically, if you’re interested in getting your home re-floored, you have to visit different showrooms all around town to see various flooring samples and get additional information. At In and Out Floors, we bring the showroom to you! We’ll visit your home at the time that’s best for you, show you several flooring samples, and discuss the differences between various types of flooring. Not only does this make the process much more convenient for you, but it also allows you to immediately compare the flooring samples to your walls, furniture, and decorations. This will help you pick out the right flooring for your unique lifestyle and preferences.
We’re located in Warren and Utica, Michigan, but our service area also includes the Metro Detroit area, Oakland, Macomb, Wayne Counties, and more. Call us to confirm you’re in our service area so we can bring the showroom to you!

Price Estimation

After you choose a flooring material, our team will use a laser measurement system to accurately measure your floor in seconds. This allows us to give you a price estimate that’s accurate down to the penny.
This method is much quicker than the traditional method of using a tape measure and then doing calculations to figure out the size of your floor. It can also be more accurate, especially if your floor is an unconventional shape as opposed to a square or rectangle.

Use the Same Quote for Future Projects

We understand you have a budget, so we’ll work with you to make future projects affordable. If you get a quote with us, but then decide you only want to refloor one room for now, we’ll honor the same quote for up to two years for the rest of your home. Even if the cost of materials or labor goes up, you can still let us know when you’re ready to start your next flooring project, then you’ll get the same low price we initially gave you a quote for.
