Hardwood Installation Matters
Avoid any bumps in the road to your home design project. Use our installation guide for great tips on the transition of your old floors to the new.
Today's hardwood flooring is extremely versatile. There are more ways than ever to install your hardwood flooring.
Our Quick-Pick icons indicate the preferred method for your selection: nailing, stapling, gluing, floating or the new "click" fit (glue-less), where plank edges snap together like the pieces of a well made puzzle.

Things to Do Before Installation
We want you to have a clear understanding of the services we provide as well as to be aware of items you will need to handle prior to the installer arriving at your home. After your purchase, items crucial to the smooth installation of your new flooring will be detailed by your sales professional in a pre-installation check list and may include some of the following:• Verify the installation date.
• Ensure removal of all "breakables" from the room.
• Determine who will remove furniture, appliances and the sub-floor, if needed.
• Arrange for the disconnection of gas appliances and icemakers.
• Determine if any change to the height of the new floor will require adjustments to doors in order for them to close properly.
• Ensure the removal of items in storage areas and closets where the floor is to be resurfaced.
• Make certain drapes, wall hangings and pictures are removed from walls.
• Verify that your in-home temperature is appropriate for installation.
