If you want an easy and care free installation- and we all want that!

- here's a checklist of things to do before the installer arrives.

  • Make sure you know who's removing your existing flooring. if you wish, the installer will do it. If not, you should make arrangements to have it removed. to minimize dust, vacuum your old carpet before it's removed and, after its up, vacuum the floor thoroughly.

  • Who's moving the furniture? Decide in advance if you want to take on the responsibility or if you want the installer to handle it. Either way, be sure to remove all fragile items from the room, and don't leave anything - such as drapery or plants - hanging over the installation area.

  • Measure  door clearances before you have your floor installed. If the new floor is thicket 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.

  • Paint first. If you're planning to paint, wallpaper, or do any other remodeling in the room, it's best to do it before your carpet is installed. Keep extra paint to touch up any post - installation nicks.

  • In General, your hardwood 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

  • In general, your laminate should run parallel to windows or, in narrow rooms, to the longest wall.

It's also a good idea to check with us directly to find out if there are other actions we recommend before installation. Just call a member of our friendly staff.
