7 Questions To Ask A Hardwood Flooring Installer

When you’re deciding who will install your floors, keep this list of questions so you can make an informed decision.

  1. Will the project manager be conducting a full on-site inspection to make sure the space is ready for the flooring to be installed?
  2. Will they take care of the removal process? You’ll want to know if the removal of your old flooring is part of the installation service they provide.
  3. How do they prepare the floors? Before any new hardwood flooring can be laid, it is important to have a flat and level sub floor. Find out if the installers have experience fixing subflooring issues and if it’s one of the services they provide.
  4. What installation methods and additional service options do they provide? If you need acoustic underlay, can the installers provide that service and do they have extensive experience installing underlayment?
  5. Does the installation team have extensive experience installing the same type of floors? Ideally, they should have experience in all types of hardwood flooring installation, such as glue down installation, glue together floating installation, floating click installation and nail/staple down installation.
  6. Are they able to skillfully install hardwood flooring patterns? Parquet, chevron, and herringbone hardwood floors should be options they can provide and have had experience in installing.
  7. Is the work guaranteed? And if so, what is the length of the warranty? It is important to get specifics about what they guarantee for your peace of mind and to avoid issues in the future.
  8. What finishing services do they offer? A qualified installer should be able to offer finishing options, such as installation of baseboards, quarter round, shoe molding, transitions, or reducers to complete the project.
