As the calendar moves closer to installation day, we will review with you the large objects such as furniture that will need to be removed from the rooms that are getting new luxury vinyl floors. Please make note of any items that require special care and consideration when being moved. You will need to empty the cabinets, drawers, and closets of all furniture before it is moved. We’ll also check the manufacturer’s instructions and to ensure that you set your heat or air conditioning to create the necessary indoor environment for acclimatation & installation of your product. These prep steps save both time and hassle for a smooth luxury vinyl plank installation.
Most luxury vinyl products offer a floating installation option so they can be easily installed over a variety of existing floors and subfloors. We will discuss with you whether the luxury vinyl is being installed over an old floor, if the subfloor needs additional leveling, and how to dispose of your old floor covering if it needs to be removed. We’ll develop a plan beforehand for any potential waste produced during the installation of your new luxury vinyl. There’s also a chance that baseboards and woodwork may need to be removed for installation, and we’ll help you come up with a game plan for completing moldings & baseboards and touching up any paint after your new floors have been laid. To be on the safe side, we will remove doors that may not clear the newly installed floor and be ready to shave down doors to ensure clearance. All of these considerations minimize surprises, prevent stress, and ensure optimal conditions for your luxury vinyl plank installation.
