Either way works. Some customers want to browse our flooring selection before they request a measure and get a price. However, we like to come out and measure first - that way when a customer comes in we know the exact square footage/yardage and what the labor will involve ( i.e. removing existing flooring or going over the existing, removing and resetting of furniture and appliances, thresholds, stair installation-runner or wall to wall, bound or turned and tacked on the sides,etc.).
