Flooring & Design Essentials vs. National Big Box Stores

• Box stores and national chains have no roots or vested interest in Saskatoon and Area

We believe in providing safe, quality products, warrantied installation and great customer service during and after your sale. We also support local suppliers, installers and charities.

• Saving minimal money at big box stores is not worth the headaches and heartache of a floor that fails and no support to fix it.

We guarantee our installations for a full year!

• Beware of so called ‘free installation’ when it comes to installing your flooring. No one works for nothing – padding the price of flooring or underpaying an installer usually takes place. Either way, a rush installation job happens – sacrificing quality or a paying too much for the flooring itself. Either way, the customer isn’t getting what they pay for.

• Ask questions! Where is the flooring from? Are their VOC concerns? Is there stewardship of goods?

We can explain to you where our flooring is from, how it has been made/processed, and what the manufacturing process is.

• Understand that big box stores have a roster or list of installers. After selling you flooring, they will call the next available installer to do your flooring.

We work with our customers and installer to ensure that the best and most qualified installer works on your project, depending on the type of job and type of products used.

At FDE, an owner of the store calls every customer after your job is complete – big or small – to deal with any issues on the spot and to ensure you are completed satisfied with your job!

FDE stands behinds it’s products, people and service; and we guarantee our work! Period!
