The Hardwood Installation Process

We will schedule a time to come in, take measurements and give you your freeestimate.
After you have purchased your flooring and have it delivered, it is important that it sits in the room that it is being installed in for 2-3 days. Why? so that it gets used to the climate of the house.We will ensure we take this into account when scheduling the installation.The process is the same for prefinished or unfinished hardwood flooring.

Once we have set the date, it is time for the installation process.
Professional installation: Our installers and Re/finishers are highly professional 

We start with the basics:

Securing the sub floor: to ensure no squeaks or unevenness in the floor, we may need to secure the sub floor by screwing, removing and replacing portions to ensure solid quality foundation

Installing the wax underlay: uses a vapour barrier to help keep moisture away from the floor

Installing the hardwood: We arrive with all the flooring needed, and install the solid or engineered  floors properly and efficiently.

We use cleats or staples for a safe hold. We nail our floors every 6-8 inches apart which is the industry standard. 

Installing flooring trim: baseboards, transition pieces and quarter rounds. This is the final step in the installation process. We will stain the trim to match the hardwood and install it throughout the needed areas. These are used around the room, in between doorways and between areas of uneven levels (carpet, laminate or tile to hardwood)

After the job is done, we will clean up and remove any waste.
We will follow up with your after the installation process is complete to ensure your standards are met.
