PREP WORK – BEFORE INSTALLATION
When installing a new floor, the first step is prep.
Which sometimes is the difference between a new floor failing or lasting a lifetime. The prep work on a job may consist of repairing an insufficient sub-floor, leveling certain areas, removing squeaks, identifying problems, prepping the surrounding work space with plastic wrap and tape, or finding any number of other variable issues. Not taking the time in the beginning to investigate your projects condition, could result in a complete tear-out to fix the problem which should be avoided at all costs.
Remember that prep work also includes containing the mess that is caused with the construction going on in your home. We’ve grown a reputation for being a trusted flooring contractor, that means we treat your house as if it were our own. This includes taping off sensitive areas, using dust-free vacuum systems, hanging plastic, rolling out paper walkways, reporting damage or found issues, and most importantly disposing of our waste (even if it was your old flooring).
We also deliver your hardwood flooring straight to your home or job-site, our crew will help unload the product into a safe location a couple weeks prior to your job starting. This allows the hardwood flooring to adapt to your job conditions such as humidity and moisture levels because wood is constantly expanding and contracting. WE NEVER install a floor with freshly delivered wood, it is mandatory for your product to match your homes humidity conditions to prevent the installation from shifting, buckling, or shrinking.
