Should I Become a Flooring Installer or Not?
Flooring installers measure, cut and place various types of flooring for their clients. Installers work with floors like laminate, vinyl, linoleum, epoxy, marble, tile, carpet, and lots more. They are generally responsible for safely removing old flooring, laying and leveling sub-floors, and installing new flooring based on the design arrangement. These professional Installers often work in the building contractors industry, and many are self-employed. This job can be physically demanding, and protection must be used to prevent injuries, especially those involving the knees. Installers who are self-employed may need to spend significant time seeking new job assignments.
