A COMMON MISTAKE: GOING TO A BIG BOX STORE FOR FLOORING

  • The sales clerks are not flooring professionals
  • They send out an installer to measure the quantities needed

  •  They do not visit the job site
  • They are sometimes devious in quoting prices

  • They basically say to a customer “pick out a flooring and we will sell it to you”
