How to prepare for hardwood flooring installation Vancouver WA:
We want you to know what to expect before we do your hardwood flooring installation. It is always best to be prepared for that big day when we show up to do your new hardwood floor. When you are prepared ahead of time, it can make the process go faster and more smoothly. It will also decrease the stress for you and your family on installation day.
Because hardwood flooring installation is a demanding, precise and detailed process, our first bit of advice is to choose a professional installer. You will be glad you have an experienced and dedicated professional working for you on your installation. At the end of the job, you can expect superior quality and beauty.
Next you will need to remove all furniture and other objects from the area where the installation will take place. The area must be climate-controlled, which means heated or air-conditioned, and indoor humidity needs to be within a certain range.
Then you will need to consider how you are going to remove the old floor covering. This in itself is a big job. We recommend that you consult with us about the cost and disposal method for your your old floor. If you prefer to remove it yourself, do it at least one day prior to the arrival of your new hardwood product to allow time for cleanup and for floor preparation.
The subflooring is the next thing that needs to be considered. Your current subflooring may need to be prepared for the installation of the new floor, or a new subfloor may be needed. We encourage you to consult with us. It is important that the subfloor be as clean and level as possible.
Finally, remember that hardwood flooring installation Vancouver WA will produce waste. Talk with us before installation day to make the best plan for cleanup.
