When you choose hardwood flooring for your remodel, you'll find benefits that could serve you for more than 100 years. Durability and fantastic beauty are hallmarks of these materials, and they'll help you well over the years.

Once you choose the perfect materials, installation is the next step. Here are some tips for preparing for installation, so you know what to expect.

Measuring and estimates


After researching and shopping, you'll choose the hardwood flooring that best fits your needs. Next, we'll discuss formats and installation layouts, measure your spaces for the best fit, and provide a professional estimate for your wood floors.

Our estimate includes the product and installation price for every room where we will install your flooring. If you have any questions, this is a great time to ask, and we'll be happy to answer.

Acclimation time


No matter what type of hardwood flooring you choose, the products need acclimation time before installation. Most wood products range from one to three days, depending on temperatures and humidity.

The installation day


Before the day arrives, you'll want to remove furniture, wall hangings, and standing art. We'll also discuss the removal of old flooring if that's necessary.

Once hardwood flooring installation starts, your team will need access to electrical outlets and a passage in and out of the work area. Next, we will discuss the sanding and finishing process, with estimates of how long the entire installation will take.
