Flooring installation FAQs

Is the installation process the same for all flooring types?

No, it isn’t. Each flooring type has its installation requirements, with products like laminate and luxury vinyl offering the quickest and easiest installs. Hardwood, stone, and porcelain tile take much more time because precision is an integral part of the process. Carpet also takes more time, as seams need to be connected and the material stretched before it’s finished.
What can I do to prepare for my flooring installation?

There are several things you can do to get ready to have your flooring professionally installed. The first thing is to remove any furniture, wall hangings, breakables, or other irreplaceable items. Be sure there is access to power outlets and ensure that your HVAC service is set to recommended settings. You might also want to ask about door removal, if necessary, for flooring that will be higher than that of the flooring being replaced. For more ideas of what you can do before installation, be sure to speak with your flooring professional.

Which hardwood flooring offers the fastest installation?

Engineered flooring can usually be installed faster than solid hardwood, but you’ll have to find out more about your expected acclimation process to be sure. Also, prefinished materials offer quicker installation because they already have a stain color, sealant, and finish applied before leaving the manufacturer. If you prefer a more comprehensive range of stain color options, you’ll want to consider site-finished materials and a longer installation time.

Is it necessary to install an underlayment beneath laminate flooring?

For laminate flooring, a quality underlayment can remove the “click” sound that often accompanies footsteps and adds more comfort and warmth. It’s also a great way to reduce noise levels and echo while also acting as another insulation layer for heat retention. Some laminate floors come with underlayment attached, so be sure to ask when in doubt.
