When it comes to flooring projects, it’s important to get the best value for your money. That’s why at Quality Red Tag Floors, we offer detailed estimates in an itemized breakdown to help our customers make informed decisions about their flooring needs. Here are just a few of the benefits of our detailed estimates:
One of the biggest advantages of our detailed estimates is the transparency they provide. Customers can see exactly what they are paying for and can ask questions or request more information about specific costs if needed. This helps to build trust between the customer and our company, and ensures that there are no surprises when it comes to the final bill.

- easy to read quotes
- upfront costs
Apples to Apples – Easy Comparison
In the world of flooring there is many different types of flooring and quality levels. It can be confusing and frustrating to get clear answers on what type of flooring is best for a project.
Our detailed estimates also make it easy for customers to compare quotes and determine which one offers the best value for their money. By itemizing each cost separately, customers can see how each quote compares to others and make an informed decision.
We understand that our customers are looking for the best value for their money when it comes to their flooring projects. That’s why we strive to offer competitive prices while also providing the highest quality materials and workmanship.
It is important to remember that sometimes, the lowest quote may not always be the best option. Quotes that seem lower at first glance may not include all the necessary materials or labor, or may not use the same quality of materials as other quotes. This can result in additional costs or lower quality work in the long run.
That’s why we encourage our customers to carefully compare our quotes to others and to consider all the factors involved when making their decision. We believe that by offering the best value and quality, we can provide our customers with the best overall experience and satisfaction with their flooring projects.
We believe in the importance of making an “apples to apples” comparison when it comes to quotes. This means comparing quotes that include similar materials, labor, and scope of work. By doing this, customers can feel confident that they are getting the best value for their money and making an informed decision about their flooring project.

What to Expect in a Detailed Flooring Estimate
When it comes to a detailed flooring estimate, there are several key points that should be included. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect to see in a detailed estimate from Quality Red Tag Floors:
- Removal of existing flooring
- Floor prep (repairs or underlayment)
- Flooring installation (materials & labor)
- Quantity or square footage
- Necessary mouldings or finishes (transitions, reducers, stair nosings)
- Floor leveling
- Waste disposal
- Baseboards (removal & installation)

It’s important to carefully review a detailed estimate to ensure that all necessary costs are included and that you have a clear understanding of the scope of the project. At Quality Red Tag Floors, we pride ourselves on providing thorough and transparent estimates to our customers. Contact us today to get a detailed estimate for your flooring project.
While our detailed estimates may take a little longer to create, especially for larger projects, the added transparency and comparison can actually help customers save money in the long run. By understanding exactly what they are paying for, customers can make informed decisions about which materials and labor are necessary and which can be cut without sacrificing quality. If a customer decides to do a portion of the labour themselves, then they will also know how much their potential cost savings are.
On the other hand, lump sum quotes can be riskier for customers. Because the price is fixed and includes everything, it can be hard to determine exactly what is included and how it compares to other quotes that may itemize each cost separately. This can make it difficult to determine which quote is the best value for your money. Additionally, if the project ends up taking longer or costing more than the company anticipated, the customer is still on the hook for the fixed price.
At Quality Red Tag Floors, we understand that flooring projects can be a significant investment. That’s why we offer detailed estimates to help our customers make informed decisions and get the best value for their money.

The Risks of Choosing a Lump Sum Quote for Your Flooring Project
It’s important to note that there are risks associated with not getting a detailed, itemized quote for a flooring project. While lump sum quotes may seem convenient at first, they can actually be riskier for the customer.
One of the biggest risks of a lump sum quote is that it can be difficult to compare to other quotes. Because the price is fixed and includes everything, it can be hard to determine exactly what is included and how it compares to other quotes that may itemize each cost separately. This can make it difficult to determine which quote is the best value for your money.
Additionally, lump sum quotes can be risky because they provide less transparency. Customers may not know exactly what they are paying for, which can lead to unexpected costs or surprise fees. This can damage the trust between the customer and the company and can lead to frustration and disappointment.
Furthermore, lump sum quotes can be risky because they provide less flexibility. If the project ends up requiring more materials or labor than anticipated, the customer is still on the hook for the fixed price. On the other hand, if the project ends up requiring fewer materials or less labor than expected, the customer may end up overpaying.
In contrast, detailed, itemized quotes provide transparency, comparison, and flexibility. Customers can see exactly what they are paying for, compare quotes to determine the best value, and make informed decisions about their project.
At Quality Red Tag Floors, we believe that detailed, itemized quotes are the best choice for our customers. Contact us today to learn more about our process and to get a quote for your flooring project.

Factors that cause additional costs
There are a variety of factors that can impact the cost of a flooring project, and it is important for customers to be aware of these potential additional costs. Here are some examples of additional costs that may be incurred on a flooring project:
- Additional materials: If the project requires additional materials, such as underlayment or transition strips, this can add to the overall cost of the project.
- Additional labor: If the project requires additional labor, such as floor leveling or the removal of existing flooring, this can also increase the cost of the project.
- Unforeseen damage: If the project involves the repair of existing damage, such as water damage or structural issues, this may result in additional costs.
- Custom work: If the project requires custom work, such as the installation of specialized flooring or the creation of intricate patterns, this can also result in additional costs.
- Changes to the scope of the project: If the customer decides to make changes to the scope of the project, such as adding additional rooms or upgrading to a different type of flooring, this can also impact the overall cost of the project.
It is important for customers to be aware of these potential additional costs and to discuss them with their flooring contractor before making any decisions about their project. By understanding all the costs involved, customers can make informed decisions about their flooring project and avoid any unexpected expenses.
