Here are a few things to consider before your professional hardwood installation

  • Clean your existing flooring so that the installers have a clean surface to install.
  • Talk to your installers about furniture removal and how that will be handled. Typically you will want all furniture removed from the room before the crew arrives.
  • Make sure all pets and children will be gone on the day of the installation.
  • If you have plains to paint your room, do so before the installation. The last thing you want is paint dripping on your brand-new flooring.
  • Ask any last-minute questions to your crew!


Here’s the procedure an experienced hardwood installation crew will follow:

  • Your installer will evaluate your floor and subfloor construction to decide what considerations must be made before installation.
  • Your installer will complete moisture testing of the wood flooring and subfloor. This is done so that the floors won’t take on gaps later on. 
  • Your installer will nail or glue boards in place. 
  • Your installer will assess the work and answer any questions that you might have. Please allow 24 hours or so to let the materials settle.
