Flooring is a huge expense. In fact, most of us put it off because it’s so pricey. Both my best friend and I have redone some flooring recently and we have totally different experiences. In my case, I’ve actually tackled flooring twice in the last few years – although the second attempt is ongoing. Ask any do-it-yourselfer and you’ll get an earful about saving money by installing flooring yourself. After all, it’s tedious, but certainly not rocket science. And I should know, I grew up in Houston surrounded by rocket scientists.
