During Hardwood Installation | Sanford Carpet & Flooring

What to expect during your hardwood Install

While no two installations are the exact same, here is a rough overview of what you should expect during your hardwood installation:

  • Your existing flooring may need to be removed, and your subflooring may need to be prepared. 
  • For a glue-down hardwood installation, adhesives will be spread on your subflooring, and hardwood planks will be laid individually. Your crew will cut the hardwood pieces to fit the layout of the room while ensuring that no gaps exist at the culmination of the job
  • For a nail-down hardwood installation, a similar process will be followed as the glue-down installation, but instead, the crew will use nails instead of adhesive.
  • We will then clean up and provide our quality assurance check.
