Before Installation Day
Your old floor covering
We’ll help you decide how your old floors will be removed & disposed of. This can be time-consuming: Your existing subfloor may need to be leveled out before new floors are laid. In many cases, moldings & baseboards need to be removed prior to laminate installation. Painted baseboards, woodwork & paint may need retouching after installation is complete.
Prepare a door plan
When laminate is installed, there’s always the possibility that your doors, especially closet, basement and bedroom doors, may not clear the height of the new floors and swing free. Our installers may remove doors to install your flooring and will re-hang them if needed. We may recommend shaving or cutting down doors to ensure clearance.
Be clear about cleanup
Installing new floors will inevitably produce some degree of mess. Our team will handle all the cleanup, and if there's any waste we'll typically leave it at your property’s normal trash collection site. If you foresee any issues with this arrangement, don’t worry – we’ll clarify all the details before the scheduled date of your installation.
