Before you go and investigate one of the Senoia, GA area flooring stores, you should make sure you arrive armed with specific information you will need to make a decision. First of all you need to know the exact size of the room you’re trying to re-floor. Secondly you need to know your budget. Thirdly you need to know the type of use it’s going to get, this you will know already but coming in ready to discuss it will help. Finally you need to know what type of look you want.

Budget is obviously one of the biggest concerns but it’s so directly tied to the amount of area you have to cover that walking into any of the Senoia, GA area flooring stores without knowing the square footage will make getting an accurate estimate impossible. Here’s the bad news, most likely you will need to do a bit of math to find the square footage. Get a tape measure and measure the length and width of the room, remember the square footage is the same as area so it’s:

If there’s a cut out into the room (like from a staircase cutting into the floor) then you need to measure the area it cuts in and subtract that, or:

Once you’ve determined the area you need to fill it makes budgeting much easier. That way if you know the cost per square-foot of installation you can do it yourself.

Once you get an accurate estimate it’s easier to know what can and can’t fit in the budget.

The final two points are somewhat tied, you want to walk into the Senoia, GA Flooring Stores with the knowledge of what type of wear and tear your flooring will get, and what you want it to look like. Since you live in Senoia, GA you won’t have to worry about the effects of snow encrusted boots on your floor, the salt and sand you’re likely to drag in. At the same time, you will still have plenty of concerns. The amount of pets and children you have can determine if you want to even bother with carpet, or that if you go the route of carpeting what type of guarding you need in it to prevent staining.
