I'm having new flooring installed in 3 rooms of my house. I bought the flooring from Home Depot and talked with one of their sub contractors about the installation.I them talked with a local man who has a full time 40 hour a week job and then on the side (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) works on installing peoples flooring. His estimate was $150 MORE than the full time contractors!!!!!!!!!!!! I asked him "what makes you more expensive", his answer got him the job. I'm local, if there is ANY problems in the future I will be here to fix them AND I charge what I need to do the best job, not to get the job. Deposit is paid and his $150 more expensive job on my house begins Friday. Never knew floor installers were 10X brighter than most Taxidermists. 93ford, I appreciate your better attitude, but it was YOU, not HEATH CLINE said people charging the higher amount were ripping peope off.
