Before, During, And After Your Hardwood Installation

By taking the proper steps at every phase of installation, you can prepare for outstanding finished results!

Before Your Installation:

New hardwood installation will require a perfectly level subfloor and a completely empty room! Remove all furniture and items from your room, closet spaces, and walls. We can help you assess the proper flooring removal steps, subfloor prep, removing trim and doors, and other considerations. The new hardwood planks will need to acclimate to your home’s humidity and temperature for 2-3 days beforehand.

During Your Installation:

Establish adequate ventilation in the home during your hardwood installation. Since your hardwood installers are using tools such as power saws, nailers, staplers, and hammers, it is important to keep kids and pets away from the process. We also advise designating a work area in the home for your installers to resize and saw planks as needed. Be home and available during installation to answer questions and address any complications.

After Your Installation:

Use this time to ask your installers any questions you may have and make sure that your doors have full range of motion with the new hardwood. Although your new hardwood can receive light foot traffic without shoes within the first 6-8 hours, we recommend waiting at least 24 hours before foot traffic with footwear. Wait at least 48 hours before restoring your furnishings and wait a full week before placing area rugs on top of your new wood floors.
