The first stage involves all the activities prior to the actual work on site. We will come visit the site at your most convenient time, to conduct measurements and preliminary assessments. Next step is to provide you with a competitive estimate, the overall scope and budgets for flooring materials. After estimate is approved, comes the time to select samples – either at our showroom or at the site. Since is there is a multitude of options nowadays, we can help make an informed decision by giving you advice on specifications, cost and performance of each flooring sample.

Finally, after this, is the scheduling of the actual work on site. If needed, we can be flexible in working in separate phases to allow the customer access to the space. Or we can schedule the work to coincide with customer going away on trips or vacation. We also provide services to protect and move large furniture within the job site or, in certain cases, even storing the pieces offsite with storage companies.

During the course of time, the substrate, whether wood or concrete, can settle or deteriorate in various ways. Adhesives can fail over time, separating wood substrates from joists. With building movement, concrete floors can develop cracks. Because of these processes, it is vital to assess the integrity of the substrate before any new flooring is installed.

Commonly encountered issues with subflooring and substrates are damage, unevenness, and not being perfectly flat. To ensure a good final product, these are issues that need to be dealt with before any new flooring is installed. We will inform you if any additional work is required.
