Before your installation
We will remove all furniture and objects from the room(s). Ahead of your installation, we’ll review large objects that may require special care and consideration when they are moved. Make sure to empty the contents of any cabinets, drawers, and closets in these areas before our installation team arrives. If necessary, we may set your heat or air conditioning to create the preferred environment for installation, according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
If necessary, moldings and baseboards may need to be removed before the laminate can be installed. In some cases, this may warrant any baseboards, woodwork, and paint be retouched once installation is complete.
Most laminate flooring allows for a floating installation, but it is still important that the subfloor be as clean and level as possible. We will work with you to determine if the existing floor or subfloor is suitable before the laminate is laid and take the steps to prepare it if needed.
It’s always wise to consider the possibility that your doors may not clear and swing free after the laminate is installed. This means we might need to remove doors in order to install the laminate and re-hang them afterward. If the new floor height presents any issues, we can shave or cut down doors to ensure clearance.
Your presence will be required on the day of installation in case the installation crew has questions. Throughout the day, our team can check with you to ensure that the correct laminate is installed in the proper areas. Although there’s no exact way to estimate the length and circumstances of each job, we strive to give you an accurate arrival & departure time. We ask and thank you for your flexibility in advance. We are a team!
Due to the variety of tools and techniques needed to professionally install your laminate, we deem the work area too hazardous for your family to be present. Make sure your loved ones and pets are clear of all work areas during installation to ensure everyone’s safety.
Before the completion of your new laminate installation, we want you to walk through the job with the chief installer. Ask all the questions you have and get a clear understanding of any final details. Your satisfaction is our number one goal.
Establish good ventilation if you or your family are sensitive to odors. If so, provide those rooms with adequate airflow by opening windows & running fans to create a breeze.
