Removing Existing Floors
Do you want to replace your old floors? We offer removal and disposal services of existing floors. Our services include the removal of vinyl tiles, hardwood flooring, ceramic tiles, and carpets.
We will get your floors ready for the new floors. Our subfloor preparation includes levelling the concrete subfloor or installing new sheets of plywood. We do this because a flat and solid subfloor is the key to the proper installation of wood floors.
Acoustic Underlay Installation
We are happy to help with the installation of acoustic underlay. We have a number of options to meet your needs. The choice of acoustic underlay will depend on your budget, job requirements, and sound.
Certified Hardwood Installation
We offer several certified hardwood installation options. You can choose from glue together floating installation, glue down installation, floating click installation, as well as staple/nail down installation for hardwood flooring.
To finish things up, we offer professional finishing services. Our services include the installation of baseboards, shoe moulding, quarter round, transitions and reducers. These solutions provide the best finishing touch to any project.
Flooring Installation Methods
Naildown / Staple installation
This type of installation is only applicable for flooring being installed onto a wooden sub floor. For this type of installation the flooring is generally solid or engineered. the floor is laid down with random length strips.
Glue Down Installations
This is mostly used where the sub floor is concrete. Solid wood is not installed on concrete as this process can cause cupping. The two most common products used in this type of installation are engineered and laminate flooring.
This type of installation is generally used for installing engineered or laminate flooring. It can be regular tongue and groove or ‘click’. The subfloor is usually concrete or an uneven wood subfloor.
A foam cushion padding is laid onto the sub-floor and the engineered or laminate is laid on top. The tongue and groove of each plank are glued together or if ‘click’ are locked together without glue.
Not all engineered flooring can be floated. Floating floors can also be installed on top of old existing floors where one does not want to remove the old floor.
A point to remember is that when a floating floor has been installed it becomes one single piece (slab) of flooring. One must therefore allow room at the sides for some expansion and contraction.
Floor Installation Warranty
With the correct and proper installation of a hardwood floor a customer’s investment will be protected, appreciated and enjoyed for many years. Furthermore, regular maintenance and cleaning will add to the longevity of the flooring. Neglecting the recommended installation procedures and/or maintenance could void the warranty (see warranty section).
*** We recommend all installments be carried out by professional certified installers. No matter the quality of a hardwood floor, a poor installation can ultimately lead to customer dissatisfaction. Using a non-certified installer, to save a few cents on an installation, a client can easily jeopardize the value of their investment.
