The CFM Solution
the High Cost of Apartment Carpet
Replacing worn out and damaged carpet
and vinyl flooring is a huge ongoing expense. Rental property owners are warned to
keep a close eye on the amount charged for Carpet and vinyl replacements and
related flooring repairs.
Main Landlord Problem
The number one concern for rental
owners and property managers has
always been price verses quality for carpet and vinyl. There may be another
important issue for rental owners to be concerned with...the possibility of
Why be concerned about being
overcharged? It's due to the inherent technical aspects
of the industry that make it very common for
a flooring vendor or subcontractor to overcharge you for labor and/or materials.
This is not to say that all vendors intentionally overcharge you, but many do.
There are many methods
used by flooring vendors to intentionally overcharge for carpet and vinyl replacements. These methods are so cleaver that most landlords
never discover the discrepancies and would have
a hard time proving that it was an intentional act even if it were discovered.
Apartment owners typically spend thousands each
year on carpet and vinyl replacements and can only hope that local flooring vendors are
charging honest and reasonable prices for both labor and materials. The sad truth is,
landlords that need to replace flooring often may be overcharged thousands of
dollars for materials and/or labor each and every year.
Some landlords are faced with frequent
and costly flooring repairs. Water leaks are the most common cause of flooring
damage and dry rot which can be very costly to repair. If left unchecked water
damage can quickly eat up your rental profits in a hurry.
Proper maintenance and inspections can
help prevent floor damage from occurring and reduce damage severity and repair
But in order for flooring
repairs to last, it is imperative that the repair
is performed thoroughly and with the right materials and installation
procedures. Most landlords and property managers are not adept at flooring repair methods and
techniques and may not be aware that the repair work performed by subcontractors
may be inadequate, thus causing the floor repair to not last.
Who's minding the
Landlords would like to believe that the
flooring materials are being installed properly when entrusted to a local
flooring vendor. However, most are quick to admit they lack sufficient
product knowledge or installation experience to determine a good
installation job from a bad one.
It is common for landlords assume that
their new flooring is installed correctly and often rely on onsite property managers or management companies
to make that judgment call for them.
When flooring is installed improperly
it reduces the life span of the flooring significantly.
