Choosing and buying a hardwood floor is the easiest part. Unless you are a DIY enthusiast with flooring experience, installing a hardwood floor can be an exercise in frustration and difficulty, not to mention time. Our floor installation experts can make the job so easy for you that all you have to do is relax, let them do the hard work and heavy lifting, and then enjoy your floor.
Several steps go into the installation of a hardwood floor, and our flooring installation experts will take care of all of them for you.
The first step is to take a look at the space and ensure that we know what is needed in order to ensure that the new floor can be installed.
Removal of current floor
In order to install a hardwood floor, we first have to remove the floor that’s already there. This could involve taking up carpet, removing old hardwood, or pulling up floor tiles.
This important step ensures that your hardwood floor is going to be installed on a surface that is level and solid. It is done either by sanding and leveling the concrete sub-floor or by laying sheets of plywood.
Acoustic underlay installation
Acoustic underlay reduces noises and vibrations that result from walking, thereby creating a quieter home environment, especially if the hardwood is on an upper floor.
Hardwood floor installation
With the preparation done, we are now ready to install your hardwood floor. The method on installation varies depending on the floor, with the most common methods being glue, floating click, and nailing/stapling.
Some additional services that we offer include the installation of baseboards, quarter round, shoe molding and reducers.
If you haven’t already selected your floor, give us a call or visit our showroom to talk to our experts about what you need. Once your floor has been chosen, our team will visit your home to do an assessment of the space, and we will then put together a detailed project plan and quote. Once you accept the quote, we will schedule a day to come and do the job.
Flooring is not the only thing we are good at. We take pride in our transparent processes that ensure that clients have full access to the project plan and timelines, the pricing, and reports of any unforeseen problems that arise. You will not be surprised by unexpected hidden costs, because you will know everything you need to know before we even start.
Before we start any project, we draw up a detailed plan that includes the costs of labour and material, and adds some contingency to allow for issues that may come up during the project. With everything itemized, you can be assured that there are no hidden charges.
Unlike many other companies that repeatedly push back the start dates on their projects, we show up on the days we promise. Contingency planning is part of what we do, so even if the project before yours takes longer than expected, this is already built into our plan.
We do not believe in the “no news is good news” approach. When we send our installation experts to do a job, we check in with them regularly to ensure that they have materials they need and that everything is going well.
Our flooring installation team come with years of experience and intensive training that makes them the best in their field. They are fully certified to meet the most rigorous standards, and they have a true passion for helping their customers create a space that they can be happy in. Whether they are installing standard hardwood flooring or an intricate herringbone pattern, they pay close attention to detail, to ensure that everything is perfect.
The worst thing about any renovation work is often the clean-up at the end. Our workmen will not leave a mess for you to clean up. We will even take away your old floor and get rid of it, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy your new floor.
