Does an inch really make a difference? The answer is yes. Your measurement may be off by a couple inches. As someone who is new to measuring for flooring estimates, you may make a mistake. Maybe you mix up the numbers. In long rooms, your tape measure may not be long enough and you have to have a new starting point. This is a great way for a mistake to be made and an estimate will be inaccurate.
There are a lot of other elements to consider with a free in-home estimate by professionals:
- Wrong measurements can lead to many other problems. Surplus product could be ordered which is wasted money. If the mistake is the other way and not enough is ordered then it will mean a delay in your project while you wait for the delivery. That could extend your project several weeks, which could lead to a lot of strife and aggravation in your home.
- Every home has “hiccups”. Rooms that aren't straight, stairs, unconventional flooring transitions, fireplaces or other issues that may be difficult to measure. Other areas like closets, entries and doorways are often overlooked. The flooring change could mean that doors need to be adjusted to accommodate the new height.
