Before laminate installation
Laminate is one of the easiest types of flooring to install. However, we still recommend trusting the experts here at Messina's Flooring. Our knowledgeable and efficient flooring techs are ready to help, and we'll make sure your job is done within warranty! Read on to learn more about the process.
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.
Next, we will move all large furniture from the workspace. It is your responsibility to secure any valuables or smaller items.
Before your flooring is installed, we'll measure door clearances to ensure that your existing doors will clear. If necessary, we may be able to sand or cut your doors down.
If you plan on painting your room, it's best to do so before new laminate is installed. This will prevent you from dripping any paint on your new floors.
During & after laminate installation
An adult member of your household (someone who is 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 kids and pets are away from the work area for their own safety.
We'll then remove your old flooring and prepare the surface for new flooring, if needed. Typically, this involves cleaning and leveling out the subfloor. We'll also conduct moisture testing to ensure there will be no chance that your laminate will buckle or cup later on. Finally, our installers will cut and place your laminate in the pattern and layout you've previously decided on.
After your installation is complete, we'll clean up your workspace. You may notice lingering dust and odors, which can last for a few days. By opening windows and running fans, you can ventilate your space and help clear the air more quickly.
