Measuring for installation

  • Measurements will take approximately 5-25 minutes depending on the scope of your project. We use laser distance measurers so we only need access to walls to get accurate distances.

  • At this time we can answer any questions you may have, as well as make suggestions to what types of flooring would be suitable for each specific area.

  • Now that we have measured, the estimator will turn the measurements in to the sales team where an estimate for your project will be created.

  • If you have not already, now would be good time to stop in to one of our two locations to pick out some materials to be added to your estimate.

  • If you have already picked out materials, the sales team will contact you with your estimate as well as email it to you for your approval.

  • Upon your approval of the estimate you will need to come in and put a down payment on your project so that we can get any special-order materials on the way.

What to know:


  • Doors may need trimmed after new flooring is installed

  • Unforeseen issues discovered once installation begins may require additional labor and materials

  • Most flooring requires a clean smooth subfloor that is flat to within 3/16 of deviation from flat over 10: Additional labor and material may be needed to achieve this requirement.


  • Concrete subfloors and crawl spaces require a moisture/vapor barrier.

  • New flooring will need to acclimate prior to installation.

  • An expansion gap is required at the perimeter of the room and will need covered by the existing or new base.


  • Tile patterns and large format tile require extra material as well as extra labor.

  • Different types of tile and where they are installed require different sealing and grouting options.


  • We may be able to install new vinyl products over existing sheet vinyl.

  • New vinyl may require an underlayment, either liquid or luan.

  • Seams are not invisible, vinyl flooring is available in 6' 12' 13'2" widths as well as floating and glued down plank.


  • Tack strips are normally reused if they are in good condition.

  • We reserve the right to refuse the removal of heavily soiled carpet.

  • Seams may be visible based on location, lighting, and type of carpet chosen. Choosing 12' or 15' wide carpet can directly affect the placement of the seams.
