Hardwood flooring is one of the most popular residential flooring choices, and while DIY hardwood installation is possible, hiring a professional often leaves you with a more even installation. Even installations allow for easier maintenance, a cleaner aesthetic, and less hassle for homeowners. If you’re considering a professional hardwood installation, here are 3 key things to keep in mind about the installation process.
1. You typically don’t have to relocate during a hardwood flooring installation.
You will not be able to use the living area on which the hardwood flooring is being installed, but you will be able to remain in your home if you choose as long as you are able to avoid walking on the installation area itself.
2. We’re usually out of your hair in a week or less.
Depending upon the area that is being covered, the type of wood, and the shape of the installation space, we could be finished with your hardwood flooring installation in as little as 2 days. A week is generally a good span of time to set aside, but we do our best to work efficiently while providing superior service.
3. You will be able to walk on your new hardwood flooring within hours of the installation being completed.
There’s nothing like seeing a project completed, and the thing that people want to do more than anything once their hardwood flooring installation is complete is walk on their shiny new floors. While you will not be able to walk on them the minute they are finished, most floors are able to be walked on by feet in stockings within 4-6 hours. We recommend that you wait 24 before walking on them in shoes, 48 for pets and furniture, and a couple weeks before placing carpet or area rugs, however.
Thinking about replacing flooring in a home can be a daunting task, but if done correctly, a hardwood flooring installation can be a piece of cake and can have you with freshly installed beautiful flooring in no time.
