Hardwood Installation In The Greater Boston Area

Being ready for your hardwood installation can make all the difference. Knowing what to expect on your big installation day, it can help to ensure that the process is as seamless as possible.

Before Installation Day:

  • Make sure all furniture has been removed from the room(s) in question.
  • Have a plan for your present floor covering. If you're removing it, do so in advance and clean up. If your crew is doing it, ensure they are aware ahead of time.
  • Make sure children and pets will not be present on installation day.
  • Discuss subflooring preparation with your installation crew.
  • Discuss trim preparation. Your crew may remove it for an additional cost. 
  • Have a waste plan. Your crew will dispose of waste, but it may come at an additional cost.
