Before Hardwood Installation

Here is what to expect before your hardwood installation:

  • Have a plan for your existing floors. Who is removing them? Do they need to be removed?
  • Remove furniture or have a plan in place for someone to remove it for you. You are responsible for moving any fragile items or furniture from your home.
  • Measure door clearances. This is to ensure the door does not get caught on the hardwood flooring.
  • Ensure children and pets are not present on installation day.
  • Complete any painting work.
  • Ask any last-minute questions!

During Hardwood Installation

Here's what to expect during your hardwood installation:

  • Your existing flooring and subflooring need to be prepared. This will be a discussion ahead of the installation.
  • Proper acclimation and moisture testing of the hardwood is important so that the floors do not cup, buckle, or develop gaps later. 
  • The crew will then nail or glue boards in place, creating cohesion in the flooring. 
  • Clean-up and QA will occur. 
  • You will complete a walk through, and we will answer any questions that you might have.
