What preparations are required before installation?

Prior to your hardwood floor installation, you should move all of your furniture, accessories, and decorations out of the room in which the floor is going to be installed. The room should be completely empty so that the installation team can get to work as soon as they arrive on site. Leave it to our team to do the rest.

Should I leave the house during the installation?

You can leave the house while the installation is underway; however, it is a good idea to be nearby or a phone call away in case the installation team has any questions or if difficulties arise.

How long will the installation take?

The average installation job will take us about 2-3 days, but this time is dependent on the work spectrum and the square footage of the room.. Calling and booking an appointment for an estimate will ensure the most accurate time frame for the length of your project.
