Service & Installation

When will my installer arrive at my home?

We will call the day before installation and let you know when the installer will arrive at your home. Most installations start in the morning.

Do you move furniture?

We will move furniture for an additional charge for all product types except for sand-and-finish hardwoods.  Because the process of sanding/sealing/staining/finishing hardwoods requires all areas of hardwood to be free of furniture, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to have furniture and personal belongings relocated. 
Is there a product minimum or limit on purchases?

Can laminate flooring be installed in all of the rooms in my home?

Laminate floors can be installed in any room in the house, including bathrooms.  Proper installation procedures are required and can vary depending upon rooms.

Can Laminate flooring be installed over my existing floor?

A feature of a floating floor is the ability to install over some existing flooring materials.  When we measure for your floors we can determine if this is an appropriate technique.

Can my Hardwood floor be refinished?

Solid hardwood floors, both pre-finished and site-finished, can be refinished. Some engineered hardwoods can also be refinished but require inspection to determine this.  Laminate floors cannot be refinished.

Do you dispose of old product?

We will dispose of old flooring materials for an additional fee.  Exceptions are vinyl materials that may contain asbestos in the vinyl or the adhesives.

We recommend the Bona hardwood floor cleaning product line and we carry these products in the store.  Do not use products containing citrus oil or furniture cleaners like Murphy’s Oil Soap on your new hardwood floors.  Do not use steam cleaning systems.

Do I need to worry about fading?

Laminate floors are inherently fade-resistant.
