If you’ve never done it before, choosing a new hardwood floor for your home can be complicated and confusing. Besides actually deciding which hardwood floor you want, you also must learn to develop a practical budget, and how much time it will require.
You should also understand that most experienced people will tell you that installing a hardwood floor as a do-it-yourself project is not recommended. In fact, it may end up costing you more in the long run than you might save by trying to avoid the cost of professional installation. Moreover, you should know that many flooring material manufacturers will not honor their own warranties unless their products have been professionally installed.
