We strongly recommend customers be home when the installers first arrive. This allows the installers to review the materials with you and confirm installation areas. The Installers may also ask where they can set up … make cuts. Our installers always use drop cloths to protect nearby furniture and delicate items.
The installers will need to remove the existing floors and it should be known that they will have to use tools like saws, crow bars and even scrapers that will generate noise, dust and may cause nail pops in the ceiling below.
The installers will install your new floor as discussed with your estimator. There are a few different methods of installation that are appropriate for a variety of scenarios and will impact the look and feel of the flooring once installed. For example, hardwood and laminate floors can be installed using nail/staple, glue, or click float installation methods. Nailed/stapled and glued floors are more permanent while floating floors can move a bit under foot.
