If you're considering taking on a flooring project yourself, this is a must read for you. You're probably thinking you can save on the installation costs if you do it yourself instead. However, have you considered the labor time you will need to put in? Do you know how to remove old flooring? The correct tools and equipment for the job you will need to purchase or rent? How long will the project actually take, is your spouse willing to have a non-functional room for your allowed time in the on-going project? What if complications should arise? Are you capable to fix potential mistakes? Do I even need to mention subfloor issues?
Flooring renovations can be bigger projects than most DIY's anticipate. However, it’s important to assess your honest and true, overall ability in whether you can complete the project adequately and to your satisfaction.

They have the skills and abilities to handle any unforeseen complications that might arise. All the while ensuring properly installed flooring, in a timely manner (keeping the spouse happy) with little interruption to your daily schedule. Therefore, being a win-win for everyone involved.
