Preparing for installation

A couple of days before your installation, we'll deliver your hardwood so that it can acclimate to the temperature and humidity level of the room(s). We'll discuss this with you when we confirm your installation appointment.

Prior to the actual installation of the hardwood, we'll start by moving all furniture out of the room where your new hardwood is to be installed. If you have any unusually large or heavy items that may require special care, we’ll consult with you in advance to ensure that there’s a plan in place to take care of them.

During and after installation

On the day of your scheduled installation, an adult member of your household (someone who is 18 years of age or older) should be home to greet the installation team and show them to the work site. From there, we'll remove your existing floors if needed and address any issues with your subfloor before we begin to lay your new hardwood. Once the installation begins, expect some noise & dust. For everyone’s safety, be sure to keep any small children or pets away from the work area.

You may need to stay off of your new surface for some time. The installation crew will advise you if this is the case. From there, it's up to you to care for and maintain your new flooring! Take a look at our guide full of hardwood care and maintenance tips.
