What to Expect During Home Flooring Installation

If you’re remodeling your home, then you’re probably considering home flooring installation. Learn exactly what to expect during this exciting process as you update your home with beautiful new carpet, laminate, or hardwood flooring.

  • Choosing a Material: A quality flooring company will have a variety of materials and styles for you to select from. Among the most popular materials are carpet, hardwood, and laminate flooring. When choosing a flooring material, remember to take into account the function of the specific room. You might want to use flooring that is stain-resistant in areas like your kitchen, but choose an elegant carpet design for your living room.
  • Cleaning the Room: After selecting your material and choosing the service of a quality flooring company, your flooring installation will begin on a set date. Try to remove as much furniture and heavy objects as you can. If the room has doors, then you will also want to remove those to prevent the flooring installers from missing any area of the room. Discuss with the flooring company whether they will remove and reattach the doors in the room or whether that is your responsibility as the homeowner. Any previous flooring will also need to be removed. For example, if you are installing hardwood floors on a carpeted surface, then the carpet will be removed before the hardwood flooring installation can begin.

  • tFinding a Starting Point: You and your flooring installers will agree on a beginning point for the flooring. Choosing a beginning wall is important because it will be the focal point of the room. The ending wall sometimes has irregular patterns or seams, so be sure that furniture or a door will cover any of these areas.
  • Interacting with Professional Installers: Besides completing a quality flooring job, you should expect professional interaction during every step of your home flooring installation process. From calling for estimates to the final hour of the flooring installation, every person you speak to should be kind, courteous, and conscious of your expectations for the completed project.
