Expert Assistance

With so many styles and types of flooring available that resemble hardwood, it helps to work with a subject matter expert who knows the differences between each type. They will provide you with tips and suggestions to help you make the best choice for your home and lifestyle.

Insight 04:

Know Precisely What You’re Getting

Some places sell per square foot. Some sell per square yard. When comparing prices, make sure you are comparing apples to apples and that you are getting the hardwood you need, without any pricing deception.

Insight 05:

Keep Your Hardwood Floor Protected

As a natural and organic fiber, hardwood flooring naturally expands and contracts with the weather. Heat and moisture both play a role in affecting hardwood flooring. Look beyond merely the product warranty and ask how long the installation is warranted. If there are issues years later, are you still protected? Express Flooring’s Lifetime Installation Warranty offers our customers peace of mind that no other flooring provider can.

Insight 06:

Know Your True Cost

Your actual cost is always more than just the material cost. Get a complete and accurate estimate for your hardwood flooring that includes (but is not limited to) floor preparation, underlayment, rip-up and removal, etc. All potential issues should be uncovered up front, so there won’t be any surprise costs on installation day. Express Flooring’s Full Project Pricing removes the stress and anxiety from the purchasing process by insuring that there aren’t any hidden extras or unknown costs.
