Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions we hear in our flooring store in Georgetown, KY but feel free to contact us if you need more information.
Do I need to prepare for a flooring installation?
Yes, preparation is key to avoiding problems that could add to time and costs. Installs can be different, so always ask:
- Who moves the furniture?
- Who disposes of the old floor?
- Who inspects the subfloor, and what could be the cost if needed?
What is the easiest floor tile to install?
Peel & stick tiles are easiest, looking at luxury vinyl tile (LVT) or laminate. This product can be installed via the floating flooring technique, where the pieces click together, mat, and then hover over the subfloor without any glue or nails.
What are my choices of installation techniques?
Glue and nail down. Solid hardwood is always a traditional tongue and groove/nail down, while engineered hardwood, laminate, and luxury vinyl can also be installed as a floating floor. The pieces click together, mat, and hover over the subfloor without nails or glue.
How long does a flooring installation take?
That depends on the type of flooring you choose, as well as the condition of the subfloor. Many floors can take just a half-day, but it will take longer if subfloor work is done. Solid hardwood is the most extensive and can take several days. Talk to your flooring expert to get a timeline specific to your situation.
