Baird Brothers expert Steve Stack advises that to truly get the best deal, customers should focus on value, rather than the price tag. “Yes, price is a factor — flooring is a big-ticket home purchase — but customers who want to get the most out of their flooring purchase should also factor in quality, craftsmanship, service and reputation.” Steve shares some of the reasons Baird Brothers’ premium hardwood flooring is a superb choice for homeowners who want to beautify their homes and increase resale value.
