Ordering your flooring online has many benefits, from the convenience of shopping in your own home to saving on installation costs. If you’ve settled on buying your flooring this way, E Hardwoods & Flooring would like to commend you on your savvy shopping skills—you’ve made a smart, economically sound decision!


That being said, shopping for flooring online comes with a whole different set of rules than does shopping in the physical world. The essential process is the same, of course. You select your product and quantity and pay with a debit or credit card, but for those who aren’t net-savvy, it can be very easy to have the wool pulled over your eyes. The most official-looking website can very well end up being a scam!


Don’t fret, though; there are plenty of indicators that the flooring site you’ve found is reputable, and as a creditable flooring seller ourselves, we know them like the back of our hands. Below, E Hardwoods & Flooring shares with you a few signs that the flooring site you’ve found is worthy of your business.

Internet Security is Financial Security

It pays—literally—to take your online flooring purchase seriously. No matter if you’re in the market for vinyl flooring, solid hardwood flooring, or engineered hardwood flooring, one bad website can easily lift your debit or credit card information, which can result in huge amounts of lost funds and no flooring to show for it.


When you’re looking to purchase flooring online, the following can serve as indications that a website is safe for you to purchase from:


  • You can find information on the products easily | A good website strives to be transparent and to display information about its products in an easily accessible place. Doing so ensures well-informed customers! Check out how we display our flooring for a prime example of this.
  • There’s contact information posted | Your website of choice should have both a discernable physical location and contact info you can use to get your questions answered. Anything less than transparency is indicative that the website might not be legitimate.
  • The site doesn’t make unreasonable promises | While we at E Hardwoods & Flooring pride ourselves on our affordability when it comes to flooring, there is a line as far as price goes that shouldn’t be crossed. Any deal that seems drastically outside of what the market tends towards (look at multiple sites!) should be questioned.

E Hardwoods & Flooring Strives to Be Accountable and Transparent

As you can buy hardwood flooring online from us, we work hard to be the most transparent and communicative flooring site around, while also bringing you high-quality products.
