Hardwood Installation

Hardwood floors are a beautiful addition to your home, and we’re excited to help you get your installation started. We recommend hiring a professional installation team to ensure it’s all done properly. These tips will help you prepare so everything goes smoothly on the big day.

At the Store

When purchasing your hardwood floors, ask your flooring retailer if they have professional hardwood installers on staff. If not, ask them to recommend an independent installer for your area. In most cases, the retailer will handle all the details of arranging the installation.

Be sure to ask about additional fees for things like old flooring removal and disposal, and moving larger furniture pieces.

Preparing for Installation

 Aside from clearing the installation areas in your home, there are a few other ways to prepare:
 
  • Make sure your hardwood floors are delivered to your home at least two days before installation so they can acclimate to the environment. Use the temperature and humidity guidelines recommended for your hardwood floors.
  • Always examine your new flooring for damage or defects before installation.
  • Be sure to read and follow the installation instructions.
  • Take care of any repairs to the subfloors before installing any new flooring.

During Installation

Your professional hardwood flooring installation team will arrive with the expertise, tools, and supplies to install your new hardwood. They’ll need access to electrical power outlets and an area to store their electrical tools, so be prepared to help them set up.

Installing new floors in several rooms at once can be overwhelming—be prepared for some mess from removing the old flooring, and keep in mind that your furniture and belongings will get moved around a lot.

After Installation

Keep your new hardwood floors in excellent condition with our hardwood maintenance guidelines.
