By Lisa Rippy

Tell us a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

Sasser Companies houses 6 separate divisions that operate individually and collectively. The divisions are: Disaster Restoration, Content Storage and Restoration, Construction, Electrical, Flooring and Mold Remediation. A home owner can contact any of these divisions for any particular service but it is extremely beneficial to the home owner who has a disaster emergency and Sasser Companies can utilize all of the divisions to restore the property. Our Whitsett location also has a beautiful Flooring Showroom open from 8-5 Monday thru Friday and by appointment after hours and weekends.

What are the biggest decisions that homeowners need to make when it comes to new flooring?

It is important to decide what type of flooring you want in your home. From Hardwoods, Luxury Vinyl Tile, Carpet, Stone and more, there are so many types to choose from. A huge factor to consider when making flooring decisions is the traffic and usage of the area being floored. Make sure you include animals and small children as a part of the potential traffic. Also, the quality of flooring today carries a greater value for the price. These considerations are the biggest part of the initial decision process.

Can you briefly list the main steps involved in getting new flooring, from start to finish?

There are many types of flooring available today so it is important to do research before making a flooring decision. First you need to consider what types of flooring fit into your budget. Once that has been determined, think about the traffic and function related to the area you are flooring. After that, it is a matter of making a decision on the durability of the floor you will be installing. Make sure it will maintain its appearance and value for the usage it will encounter. Lastly, color and style will complete the decision process.

How would you recommend that people choose the right flooring for a particular room in their house?

Once again, the usage and traffic in the area being floored is a key factor in determining the right flooring. Also, you need to consider the maintenance required for that particular flooring. At Sasser, we can inform homeowners if a particular flooring is difficult to keep clean and what it takes to properly maintain the original appearance. Also, people with allergies should make that a consideration during the selection process.

What are your favorite flooring products and why are those your favorites?

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is some of the most popular flooring on the market today. It carries a lifetime warranty, extremely easy maintenance and it is visually similar to ceramic and hardwood flooring. It is a perfect floor in a home with pets and small children. Overall, it is a great value for the durability and cost.

What advice would you give to people when it comes to their budget for new flooring?

There are so many flooring products on the market that fits into every budget. At Sasser Companies, we have a highly trained staff that has years of experience in providing flooring solutions for homeowners. Visit our showroom where we can guide you to a floor that has value, durability and fits into every budget.
