What to Expect During the Installation Process
During the installation process we will be nailing down flooring using air operated nail guns. In this process we will be striking the nail gun continuously until all the flooring is secured, we will create a lot of noise and stir up some dust while this is taking place. Every run of flooring will require saw cuts to be made for proper fits. These cuts will be made outside the residence to minimized the housekeeping issues, but some dust will be created when the material is returned to the residence for use, We will be working very close to the trim, walls, and fixtures during the install. We are applying a great deal of force to secure the flooring to the sub-floor, this may result in some Bumps, scaring or marring. We will make every effort to avoid this, but some will occur, so some touch up painting may be required when the work it complete. Once the install is complete, the floor must be down at least 2 to 3 weeks before sanding and finishing process can be started.
Sanding & Finishing:
Depending on the size of the job we will need 4 to 7 days of access to the residence, during this time no traffic on the floors will be allowed. You will need to make arrangements to either be away or have alternate routes around the areas being finished. Make sure no pets are in the residences while our work is in progress. We will be sanding, edging and scraping the floors in your residence during this process.We will need access to 220 volt service to operate our sanding equipment. Once the poly coats are applied, do not open doors or windows. This may allow dust, hair, or trash to get into the poly coating. It would be best to not enter the work area while the drying is taking place. No floor finishing product is scratch proof. Care must be taken when returning furniture and fixtures to the re-finished floor area. It takes several days for the finish to cure completely and provide the maximum protection.
Will you move and replace my furniture for the project?
We generally do not move furniture. It is the homeowner's responsibility to have this done prior to our work starting.
What's your policy on plumbed appliances and fixtures?
We cannot disconnect or reconnect any water supplies to any appliance, or plumbing fixtures.
