The installation process



After the product as been selected, the flooring consultant makes an in-home measurement visit to determine the square yardage and to access any other flooring concerns.


Tell us what time and day you would like one of our flooring specialists to install your flooring. We'll put you on the schedule and ensure it gets done on your time.


Remove existing flooring/staples or have an installer do it. Ensure all remodeling is completed in your room (including painting). Lastly, ensure all furniture, tapestries, or other items are removed from the room.


Decide which direction you would like your hardwood, tile, or laminate to run. In general, your hardwood and laminate should run parallel to windows or, in narrow rooms, to the longest wall.

Frequently asked questions

Who removes my old flooring and furniture?

You're responsible for removing your furniture. Our installers will help remove the old flooring and dispose of it. You must remove any fragile items from the room. Don't leave anything such as tapestries or plants hanging over the installation area.

Which way should my hardwood, laminate, or tile run?

In general, your hardwood or laminate should run parallel to windows or, in narrow rooms, to the longest wall. Added stability is achieved by installing hardwood perpendicular to floor joists. If your tile has any linearity to the pattern, decide whether you want it to run in one direction or to be quarter-turned, so that an overall "checkerboard" type pattern is achieved.

When is a good time in schedule installation?

It's best to have your new flooring installed after all other remodeling in the room is complete. This includes painting, wallpaper, or other construction. Keep extra paint handy to touch up any post-installation nicks.

What about the doors?

Measure door clearances before you have your floor installed. If the new floor is thicker than your existing floor, door bottoms may rub. Plan in advance to have someone shave or saw the correct amount off the bottom of each door so it does not drag.
