Here are some suggestions from us as to what to expect and what to avoid.

Preparation is key

Don’t skip this all-important step in the installation process. Flooring surfaces must be clean, level, and free of debris such as adhesives. Then call in an expert to assess the surface, to determine the best way to remove the old flooring and to examine the subfloor.

That’s also a good time to ask some questions, such as who removes what; when it’s okay to walk on it and when furniture can be moved in (they are often two separate time-tables); how long it will take before you can walk on the floor; if windows should be opened and how to dispose of old materials.

Professional installation or “guy down the street?”

We all want to save money, but the flooring is likely to be the biggest investment you'll make in your home. It's also an expression of your style.

Professional installers protect your investment and guarantee quality. Since they do installations every day, they’re experienced and can spot and avoid a potential problem; then handle it quickly if it does happen. It will also save you money in the long-term since these installations usually require less repair and replacement. Many manufacturers also include a clause in the warranty stating very specific installation requirements; if not followed, the protection will be voided.

While some do sub-contract installation, it’s usually best to go with an in-house team, such as what we offer. When it's in-house, they are familiar with your purchase and have a better understanding of you, your home, and your challenges. The communication is better and it’s always clear just where responsibility lies; if there’s damage, it can be a little vague with too many loopholes as to whom is responsible.
