Looking forward to your hardwood installation day.
Once you've selected the perfect hardwood for your home, you'll probably be eagerly awaiting installation day! You can trust our professional team to get the job done efficiently. Read on to learn more about the process.
Before Hardwood Installation
You want a problem-free installation and, to help ensure it, here’s a checklist of things to do before we arrive for installation.
You'll want to move your existing furniture or have the installer do it. Also, remove all fragile items from the room, and don’t leave anything—such as drapery or plants—hanging over the installation area.
Measure door clearances before you have your hardwood installed. If the new floor is thicker than your existing floor, door bottoms may rub. Plan in advance to have someone shave or saw the correct amount off the bottom of each door, so it does not drag.
If you’re planning to paint, wallpaper, or do any other remodeling in the room, it’s best to do it before installing your hardwood. Keep extra paint to touch up any post-installation nicks.
After and After Hardwood Installation
On the day of the installation, be prepared to be home to meet the installers and direct them to the work area. You should also plan on being available during the installation in case the team has any questions.
Once the installation begins, make sure children and pets are kept away from the work area. Our installers use a variety of tools and techniques that can make the work area hazardous.
When the installation is complete, you should do a thorough walk-through. This will allow you to see the final results and ask any additional questions. We want you to be 100% satisfied with your hardwood!
