Gowdy Flooring is your go-to, one-stop-shopping place for Amarillo Flooring. Our flooring store offers a large inventory of materials for your flooring installation, as well as services such as commercial carpet cleaning, installation and design consultations.

Many mistakenly think the process is over when they make the initial purchase, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The installation is at least as important as the purchase, because when the flooring is installed properly, it can only enhance the look and performance of your floor.

Expert installers will also be able to advise you on how to keep your floors looking beautiful. For instance, they’ll tell you how to best handle that common expansion and shrinkage of wood floors; they’ll advise on the best cleaners for your floor; they can tell you how to stop carpet shedding and fuzzing; and more.

Despite the DIY craze, installing a floor should only be done by professionals, and it will save you time and money in the long-run. Here’s how:

● Every flooring type requires different tools and skills. It isn’t just a matter of installing the top floor (the thing we walk on), but the subfloor also needs to be properly prepared. If it isn’t, the floor can be uneven, and it can create problems with the room’s other furnishings, especially in the case of the kitchen, where the appliances are attached to the subfloor.
● Flooring comes with warranties, but if it isn’t installed according to the manufacturer's specifications, damages most likely won’t be covered, even if they’re no one’s fault. The professional is licensed, insured, and will make sure the floor is installed exactly as the manufacturer says.
● Rooms need to be measured precisely. In a perfect world, all rooms would be simple squares, but they’re not. You have to work around baseboards, moldings and closets. Measure incorrectly, and you can be left with a carpet that “climbs the walls” (because it doesn’t fit exactly to the floor), or bumps, rolls and causes squeaky or creaky floors.
● Professionals buy their tools and materials like glue and staples, in bulk. That’s because it’s what they do, but you’ll always pay retail.
