Common Questions

Can I install my floor myself?

Installing hardwood flooring by yourself is possible. When you install the floor you must follow the manufacturer's instructions, and Grand Floors' expert advice. Buying a luxurious floor that is installed in a haphazard fashion makes the flooring itself a waste. Choosing to have a professional install your floor is the easiest and most time efficient choice for your new hardwood or engineered hardwood floors.

There is a lot of prep work involved before you install any flooring. This includes carpet removal, subfloor preparation (re-screwing and grinding), and sometimes even leveling. Most of the DIY clients are not familiar with the procedure, so we strongly recommend calling Grand Floors for professional advice even if you are doing it yourself.

What preparations are required before installation?

It is important to move all of your furniture, accessories and decorations out of the room in which the floor is going to be installed. Ensure the room is completely empty so that the installation team can get to work as soon as they arrive on site. Our team will do the rest.

Should I leave the house during the installation?

You may leave the house while the installation is underway; however, it is a good idea to be nearby or a phone call away in case the installation team needs questions answered, or if any difficulties arise.

How long will the installation take?

The average installation job will take our team about two to three days (700-1000 square ft.), but this time is dependent on the work spectrum and the square footage of the room that is being updated. Calling and booking an appointment for an estimate will be your best bet in getting the most accurate timeframe for the length of your flooring job.

Methods of floor installation

There are many methods to install flooring. Installation is dependent on the type of product chosen for the flooring.

  • Hardwood (solid) has to be nailed or stapled down to the wooden subfloor, crossing joist with an underlay moisture barrier required.
  • Engineered hardwood can be nailed down (wooden subfloor), glued down (on wooden subfloor, or concrete), or floated on foam and any subfloor (click or glued T&G).
  • Laminates has to be clicked and floated on foam (on any subfloor).
