We offer a variety of installation options, depending on your budget and lifestyle. Professional installation is critical to make sure your new flooring looks the way you want it to look and wears as expected. A professional installer will have experience with different types of hardwood flooring and will have the specialized skills required for a successful installation. It’s also important to remember that a professionally installed hardwood floor will more likely be covered by your manufacturer’s warranty.
You may have to remove your existing flooring to make a suitable installation surface for your new hardwood. This process will depend on the existing flooring. It's recommended to have this work done professionally, since a professional will be able to get a smooth and level surface.
The room where your new hardwood will be installed must be completely empty of furniture. Consider hiring a moving service for large or heavy items. A professional moving team can empty a room or even a whole house quickly. It’s also a good idea to take down photos or other items hanging on the wall, as these can be damaged during the installation of your hardwood flooring.
An adult member of your household (age 18 or older) should greet the installation crew upon arrival and show them to the work area. You should receive a walkthrough of the job from the lead installer, so you can have a clear idea of what the process will involve. You should feel free to ask them any questions you have about the job. Keep children and pets away from the work area for the duration of the job to ensure their safety and to keep the job going smoothly.
Stay off your new floors for the required amount of time after the job is done. Any stain or varnish that has been applied will need time to cure properly. The lead installer will be able to advise you on how long this will take. Open windows for ventilation if the smell of the varnish or stain bothers you.
