Planning the Installation
Consider what you might do before the installation to be prepared.
Do you want to do any of the pre-installation work like removing the old flooring, moldings and baseboards? It will save you money, but can be a lot of bother. Or, Flooring Nerd can do this for you if you wish.
Remember to decide what to do with doors.
It may be necessary to remove doors for the installation. Also, keep in mind that afterwards, doors may not clear the new floor and may need to be shaved or cut-down—you will likely need a carpenter to do this job.
Decide how to dispose of your current floor covering.
Should you prefer to remove your present floor covering, be sure to do it at least one day before the installation.
Again, this is something Flooring Nerd can do for you and likely in a more timely fashion than you can.
Decide who does the clean-up?
Putting in new flooring will produce waste that needs to be cleaned up. Talk with Flooring Nerd about who does the clean-up. We will do it for you if you choose.
How to be ready the day of installation
What you can do
Clear the room or rooms for the installation. Move everything out, including furniture, lamps, TVs, window dressings, etc. Be sure to empty book shelves, china cabinets, and closets.
This is another thing Flooring Nerd can help with. Just figure it into your contract.
