Benefits of Flooring an Entire Home at Once

If your home needs new flooring, you may be tempted to do one single room at a time. At first glance, this option appears more budget-friendly because you aren’t required to come up with the cost of flooring the whole structure up front. When you take a closer look, however, you may find that flooring your entire home at once is both more practical and financially wiser. Here’s why:

It's Easier

Living in your home while any renovations are underway is a challenge.Flooring one room at a time will prolong this period of inconvenience, as you repeat the process of measuring, shopping for materials, arranging delivery, and signing installation contracts over and over. It's important to remember that anytime work is done, it also creates time-consuming cleaning, so it’s beneficial to consolidate flooring a home in one single session. Furthermore, unfinished flooring edges require temporary protection in order to avoid a tripping hazard.

Cost Efficiency

Flooring is a big investment, and it simply makes good financial sense to take advantage of bulk pricing. Usually, it’s more cost efficient per square foot if you make a larger order at one time -- and there may be substantial savings on delivery costs and labor installation. Also, if there are any moisture issues with subflooring, or if you want to install radiant floor heating, you will save money by renovating all the relevant rooms at once.
