Niki Jacques, President of Nufloors Coquitlam, tells her customers that in the current market, home renovation, particularly as it pertains to flooring, is an excellent investment—providing you choose the right products.
“Ideally you’re looking to replace your floor every 10-20 years,” says Jacques, whose home renovation-based business was voted Favourite Flooring Store in Coquitlam by readers of the Tri-City News in 2015. “The last thing you want is to have to replace your floors after 3 or 4 years because you went with a low-cost, no-warranty option and had them installed by someone without the necessary experience.”
Here are 3 reasons to pay a little more to get the right product installed the right way, according to Jacques, whose business has been serving the Coquitlam area for nearly three decades:
1. Money: “Depending on what you prefer, flooring is around $7.00 to $10.00 per square foot,” says Jacques. “If you’re covering a large part of your house, the costs can really add up. Of course, you need to pick a flooring option that suits your budget, but if you buy a cheap, unsupported product, you also need to calculate the risk of having to replace your floors in a couple of years—and that’s really expensive!”
2. Comfort: “While we may not consciously think about them much after they’ve been installed, floors are a big part of what makes a home comfortable—or not,” says Jacques. “You come in contact with your floors more than any other part of your house so it can have a significant impact on how comfortable you are in your own home. You don’t want to crush your carpet and you don’t want your laminate to pull apart. You need to keep that top of mind when you’re picking your flooring.”
3. Stress: “If you’ve ever had to redo your floors right after upgrading them, you know how stressful the whole process can be,” says Jacques. “Not only is it a massive inconvenience, it’s incredibly expensive, when you consider that you’re basically paying to have your floors done twice. Picking the right flooring from the right supplier and installing it with experienced professionals will ensure your peace of mind—and it’s hard to put a price on that.”
