Replacing flooring is a big job that disrupts everyday life. Our staff will schedule deliveries and the installation at your convenience. When your space was measured for an estimate an installation plan was also drawn up. On this plan it notes where joints and seams should be placed so they are not noticed. The plan should also include the height of the new flooring, taking into account if a door may need adjusting to work with the height of the new flooring.
Because hardwood expands and contracts in relation to its environment, we deliver it in advance to allow it to acclimate. These normal micro-movements are offset by a small gap around the perimeter of the floor that is hidden by the baseboard.
There are several things you can do to ensure a smooth installation from our professionals. First make sure the kids and pets are not anywhere near the work area. Second, an area adjacent to the where the installation will take place should be cleared and the work area should have easy access to power and water. Next, the area being working on, should be cleared of all furniture, appliances and accessories. If you need help removing and disposing the old floor, let us know and we can tell you what we would charge for that. Oh, if by chance you have any propane or natural gas lines, they require a licensed professional to disconnect before and then reconnect after the installation.
If you have questions or need assistance with any of the above, let us know and we will help. Carpet Corner’s professional installation services are available in Kansas City, Gladstone, Overland Park, Olathe and Independence.
