If your subfloor is not level, it can lead to flooring systems failing within a short period of time, or simply not being able to be installed at all, you will also not receive your warranty, and often no company will take on these jobs. Almost all flooring systems have guidelines that must be followed to correctly install the flooring system.
– The cost to prepare your subfloor for your new flooring system is fairly cheap. – Skipping this process is a recipe for disaster and is extremely expensive.
It is far cheaper to prepare your subfloor correctly the first time before the installation of a new flooring system rather than skipping the process and purchasing your flooring system and installing it, only to have it fail within a short period of time. This will cause the following:
– You must hire a demolition company to come out to remove and dispose of the failed flooring system – You must purchase your new flooring system again – You must actually, pay to prepare the subfloor correctly this time – You must pay the re-installation fee for your flooring system
