Our Process

3. Floor Preparation

Before we start the installation we will make sure your subfloor is leveled.
If needed we will replace plywood or use cement to level concrete subfloor.
Our Process

4. Underlayment Installation

Underlayment is a thin layer of material such as cork, rubber or foam. This layer of material helps cushion, sound absorption, insulation and reduce wear with your flooring.
In order to get perfect results, we will install the underlayment and then we will install your flooring on top.
Our Process

5. Flooring Installation

There are 4 different installation methods that change based on the type of flooring you choose and the type of subfloor you have.

Laminate or vinyl flooring: usually these floors coming with a click system that connects together, it’s called “floating floors”

Solid hardwood & engineered flooring: this type of floors can be installed in 2 different ways:
Glue down or nail down or in some cases, we use both.
If your subfloors are concrete we use moisture barrier glue. This step will prevent the floors from buckling up or get warped.
If the subfloor is plywood we nail the floor down to the plywood subfloor, in order to get the best results we also use moisture barrier glue.

Carpet: these floors are always glued down to the subfloor.

Tile: in order to get the best tile installation for tile we first apply floating cement on walls or floors in order to level the surface and then use thinnest to glue the tile.
