Prepare for Installation

We are excited about your upcoming installation and here are some things for you to know.

  • Please be sure that your power is on and that adequate power, light, AC, and heat are functioning properly and at normal temperature.

  • The permanent HVAC system should be turned on and set to a minimum of 76 degrees Fahrenheit for a minimum of 7 days before and after installation. Once the installation is completed, the temperature should not exceed 80 degrees.

  • Move all small contents and breakables from furniture and work areas.

  • The installers will move and replace the furniture and/or appliances if we have quoted to do so. If you plan to move your furniture then please do it before installation day.

  • Disconnect and move all electronics from the work area.

  • Strip the beds and remove all items from closet floors.

  • Pets should be kept out of the installation area.

  • Waterbeds and aquariums should be drained and plants should be moved out before arrival.

  • Certain types of installations may involve demolition, sanding, or subfloor repair and may create dust. It is recommended to cover the cabinets and countertops for easy cleaning and cover furniture in adjacent areas.

  • Normally, we will remove and dispose of your old flooring. If you want to keep it, please inform our installation team.

  • Occasionally, we will discover unforeseen subfloor damage that was not visible when we estimated. If we can perform the repair work, we will give you an estimate of the charges for your approval. Such charges will be added to the balance due on your job.

  • Although we work to minimize it, normal installation methods may scuff your baseboards, walls, and door casing. Please be sure to have touch-up paint or stain for after the installation touch-up.
