should i pull the carpet up?

Here at Voyageur Flooring we receive a lot of questions via email. I received a popular question this morning that I thought I would answer publicly with the hope that it would help some other Minneapolis/St. Paul homeowners who are contemplating refinishing their hardwood flooring.

The quesiton is: I know that I have hardwood floors underneath the carpet, should I pull up the carpet? The answer is: it doesn’t matter to us! We can easily get an idea as to what’s underneath the carpet simply by pulling back the corner and based on the dimension of the room, provide an accurate estimate. If you want to pull it up yourself, go ahead! If you don’t, we’ll gladly pull it up for you and even dispose of the carpet on your behalf.

Finding hardwood floors underneath carpet is a great surprise! I always wonder why someone would cover hardwood floors, I digress…

If you are thinking of pulling up the carpet and refinishing your hardwood floors, call the Twin Cities hardwood flooring experts today!

From the mouth of a Voyageur Flooring customer!

The prices were excellent but we were worried about the level of customer service and how punctual the installers might be (we’d heard negative stories about other companies from friends and family). In a world where customer service is mediocre at best, it was a surprise and a pleasure to work with the people at Voyageur Flooring.  

Voyageur Flooring takes great pride in their work and it showed throughout the process of our installing our new hardwood floor. They arrived when they said they would arrive, they left when they said they would leave, and they cleaned up after themselves every evening before they left. There was no foul language exchanged, no fast food garbage or empty pop cans lying around and Voyageur Flooring was always ready to answer all of our naïve questions with care and patience.  

We love our new hardwood floors! We would, and have recommended Voyageur Flooring to anyone needing hardwood flooring services. Be careful though, your relatives and neighbors might get jealous – our sure did!
