Before hardwood installation
Once you've purchased your new hardwood flooring and have scheduled your installation, we'll walk you through the rest of the installation process so you know what to expect.
First, we'll likely need to remove and dispose of your existing floors. Typically, we'll take the ripped up flooring with us and dispose in our dumpsters. If you have any concerns regarding disposal, please raise them with us in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements. We'll then make sure your subfloor is flat and clean and ready for the installation.
Next, we will move all large furniture from the workspace. It is your responsibility to secure any valuables or smaller items.
Before your hardwood is installed, we'll measure door clearances to ensure that your existing doors will clear the new hardwood planks.
If you plan on painting your room, it's best to do so before your hardwood is installed. This will prevent you from dripping any paint on your new hardwood.
During & after hardwood installation
An adult member of your household (someone at least 18 years old) should be home to greet the crew and show them to the work area. It is important to ask any final questions you may have at this stage, and you should make sure children and pets are safely away from the work area.
We'll then remove your old flooring and prepare the surface for new flooring. Typically, this involves cleaning and leveling out the subfloor. We'll also conduct moisture testing to ensure there will be no chance that your hardwood will buckle or cup later on.
Finally, our installers will nail or adhere each plank according to the pattern and layout you previously selected. We'll also be able to handle any room shape irregularities. It's a good idea to check with us directly if you have any other questions or concerns leading up to or during the installation process.
