Laminate Installation - What To Expect
Preparing for your laminate installation
Our team will remove all furniture & other objects from the installation area, and we'll replace it when the job is complete. Before they arrive, please empty cabinets & closets to help protect your valuables. Be aware that the installation area must be climate-controlled (heated or air conditioned). Indoor humidity should be maintained between 45 and 65 percent.
Our team will remove your old flooring, if needed. We'll also replace shoe molding, and we have the ability to add baseboard replacement onto your project as a specialty service. This can all be discussed with your estimate technician during the project planning phase.
During your laminate installation
Be prepared to be at home while the installation is taking place to answer any questions the installation crew may have. You'll also be able to assist in ensuring the correct placement of the laminate. Because it can be difficult to estimate the complexity and length of each job, installers are not always able to give an exact arrival time; however, we will do our best to keep you updated. Your installers will use a variety of tools and techniques during the installation that can make the work area hazardous. Therefore, it is important to keep children and pets away from the area until the job is finished.
Once the installation is complete, conduct a thorough walk-through. Doing so allows you to see the finished product, and you can ask any final questions you may have. If you are sensitive to dust and odors, keep the area well-ventilated for up to 72 hours after the laminate is installed.
