Hardwood PRE-Installation Guidelines

Here is what you should expect before your hardwood installation:

  • Remove all furniture before installation day. 
  • If you plan on not being home at the time of installation, please leave instructions as to gaining entry into your home and a phone number where you can be reached if needed.
  • Ensure pets and children are not present on installation day.
  • The installation may create a great deal of dust that we cannot entirely control. Therefore, please expect to have to clean the installation and surrounding areas.
  • Gas appliances must be reconnected by your gas supplier.
  • If your new floor is higher than your existing floor, it may be necessary for us to trim the bottom of your doors for them to open and close. There will be an additional charge for this.
  • Make sure the job site is clean and ready before we arrive.

We will go over all charges with you before installation. There may be additional charges if the installer is asked to perform work that is not part of the original scope or if a problem is revealed that our estimator could not anticipate.

Hardwood Installation Guidelines

  • Stay off your floors for 24-48 hours after the installation is finished. This will allow the materials to settle. 
  • Do not place heavy furniture on your floors during this time either.
  • Run a fan to remove installation-related smells. 
  • Avoid walking on your hardwood floor with high-heeled shoes at all times.
  • Make sure walk-off mats are approved for hardwood, or they will discolor your floor.
  • Contact our team as needs arise.
