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 process so you know what to expect.

We may need to remove and dispose of your existing floors. Typically, we’ll dispose of old flooring at your home’s trash collection site. If you have any concerns regarding disposal, please raise them with us in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.

We will move all large furniture from the workspace. It is your responsibility to secure any valuables or smaller items.

Before your new hardwood 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 hardwood is installed. This will prevent you from dripping any paint on your new flooring.

During & after hardwood installation

An adult member of your household 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.

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.
