Flooring is a vital component of your home that can provide an aesthetic to your interior design and spacing. With so many different options available, choosing the right flooring for your home can be a tough decision but choosing the right installers is crucial for any project. Flooring can increase the value of your home so hiring professionals insures the job is completed properly and neatly.
Flooring surfaces are made to withstand constant use but proper installation can make sure your flooring endures years of usage. At D&L Builders, we want to assure that every flooring installation project is completed with the utmost care, quality, and consideration. To maintain that standard, we provide in-home consultations and detailed estimates for your approval prior to starting any flooring project. The consultation goes over the step-by-step process and estimated timelines for the project while the estimation takes into consideration the square footage, flooring materials, layout, and labor.
Every flooring installation project is different but our process with every client remains the same. Below is a step-by-step description to give you a brief overview of our flooring installation process.
When it comes to flooring, there are many different materials to choose from. Once you choose the material that is right for your home, our team analyzes the material to determine the time and labor required to properly modify and install your flooring. In some cases, the material of the flooring needs to be ordered from the manufacturer so the time for delivery needs to be considered in the timeline. Our project manager will work closely with you to coordinate the delivery of the materials at the job site.
Our flooring installation process is typically done in the following order:
In order to begin the process, we remove all furniture from the spaces that will need flooring. We then cover the cabinets and any furniture that can’t be moved so they are protected during the removal of the old flooring as well as the installation.
This process can vary depending on the old flooring. If your home has existing tile, this will need to be demolished and removed. Carpet and laminate flooring typically require a few tools and manpower for safe and efficient removal. However, the removal of hardwood flooring is a lengthy and difficult process.
After removing the old flooring, the subfloor needs to be inspected to make sure that it is leveled. In some cases, plywood or cement is needed in order to level the subfloor. Once this is complete, we proceed with the underlayment installation. The underlayment is a layer of material that sits between the subfloor and the flooring that works as a type of cushion to insulate, absorb sound, and reduce impact.
Once the floor is prepared, we are ready to install the new flooring. With every flooring material comes a specific installation method. For example, laminate and vinyl flooring typically involve a click system that connects the pieces together. Hardwood floors require glue or nails for installation. The carpet is always glued down to the subfloor while tiles are installed with cement and glue.
After the flooring installation is completed, we thoroughly inspect the job to make sure the installation was done neatly and correctly. This includes any finish that needs to be applied to the surface, the cleanliness of the site, the removal of potential gaps between flooring and baseboards, and a level surface. Once we have inspected the completion of the project we perform a walkthrough of the job with the homeowner to assure that the quality meets expectations.
We stand by the quality of our work and promise to deliver complete satisfaction. Flooring is an investment for your home and we guarantee that all flooring projects are done correctly and are installed to withstand years of use. Our professional flooring installation crew is clean, efficient, and detailed. We take no shortcuts when it comes to the installation process and follow all guidelines. Your satisfaction is our top priority and we make sure to go through everything with you to assure high-quality work.
