There is nothing like a beautiful floor to update or elevate your home. There are several factors to consider when deciding what  flooring product to install in your home, including selecting a floor that will protect your investment and add to your home’s value when the day comes to resell. Other factors include lifestyle, young children, pets, budget, overall home design, and type of foundation. Our project managers can answer all questions to help you make that decision.

Typically, we schedule a formal measure of your property and then an appointment in our showroom to select your flooring, or we bring samples. That way, we can provide an accurate estimate with exact measurements, considering foundation type, door and cabinet heights, etc. If you prefer, we can schedule an appointment in the showroom
before the formal measure.

Our project manager will determine the timeframe for the project and walk you through each step, from moving furniture, demo and haul-off old floor installation, completion, and final walk-through.

During the initial walk, we can determine what furniture needs to be moved and provide alternatives, such as on-site storage.

Typically, we recommend doing the floors after any significant renovation of countertops, islands, or moving walls and before painting so that potential dust or debris will be eliminated after the floor is installed. Our project managers will be happy to discuss these options with you.

We will arrange to haul off any unused materials or debris. This will be discussed with you when scheduling your project, and we can also arrange for maids to come in afterward if needed.

We are as accommodating as we can to your timeframe. Our customers often plan flooring work when they will be traveling or upon closing on a new home. We do our best to accommodate your schedule.

There are several factors to consider, but as a rule of thumb for solid hardwood installation, we say 3-5 days for the first 1000 SF and another day for each additional 1000 SF; if the floor requires sanding, staining, and finishing, this may take a little longer. Engineered flooring, LVP, and Waterproof flooring can typically be installed more quickly. Of course, the demo needed, furniture in the home, etc., can affect project length. For a more specific timeframe, we recommend a formal walkthrough and estimate.

Solid hardwood floors can typically be refinished. Floors are sanded to the natural wood, custom stain, and finished to clients’ specifications. Samples of the new stain are placed on your floor for your approval. Floors are stained and protected with water or oil-based polyurethane and could last a lifetime, depending on foot traffic.

Typically engineered floors are not manufactured to be refinished. There is only a very thin layer of wood on a plywood plank. Occasionally, if the engineered floor has a significant enough wear layer, it may be a candidate for refinishing.
