What to Expect When Installing

Installing hardwood floors is an excellent way to enhance the beauty and value of your home. However, hardwood installation can be a complex process that involves careful planning and execution. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at what you can expect during our hardwood installation process and how to ensure that your new floors meet your expectations.

Our Preparation

Before the actual installation process begins, you should take some time to prepare your home for the installation. This involves removing all furniture and other objects from the room in which the hardwood will be installed. Additionally, you should remove any old carpeting or other flooring material that may be present.


During the actual installation process, the hardwood planks will be laid down in a predetermined pattern. This involves our team measuring and cutting the planks to fit the room’s dimensions as well as fitting them snugly together to create a seamless appearance. This process requires a great deal of precision and skill, contact our team of professional installers with plenty of experience.


Once the hardwood has been installed, the finishing process begins. This involves sanding the floors to create a smooth and level surface free of any imperfections. After sanding, a stain or sealant is applied to protect the hardwood from moisture and other environmental factors. This process can take several days to complete, and it is important to allow ample time for the floors to dry completely before walking on them or placing the furniture back into the room.


After your hardwood floors have been installed, it is important to maintain them properly to ensure their longevity and appearance. This involves regularly sweeping or vacuuming the floors to remove dirt and debris as well as using a hardwood-safe cleaner to remove any stubborn stains. Additionally, avoid placing heavy or sharp objects on the floors that could scratch or dent the wood.
