flooring-project-side-effect Project Preparation is Important

Your walls, the cabinets and the furniture are all exposed during a wood flooring project refinishing, as well as installation.

We believe that, if the proper project preparation steps are taken, these issues become almost non-existent.

This is how:

The Walls

Dings, scratches and dents from touching them with tools or wood boards are common occurrences. With us the walls are protected, too. Prior to the beginning of the project, all the walls of the rooms we are going to work in, are going to be covered up to 4 ft in the air.

The Cabinets

The cabinets are another part of your home that is “project sensitive” and very hard to clean afterwards.  If proper project preparation is not done prior to the beginning of the project, the dust will get inside your cabinets, on your plates, glasses and silverware that will require days of clean up after the project is done.

In order to avoid this from happening,  prior to the beginning of the project, we will completely cover your kitchen cabinets with plastic.

The Furniture

During a flooring project, sometimes, the furniture will have to be moved around therefore exposing it to the risk of being damaged. Our crew is specifically trained to handle this type of situation and we will take all the necessary steps to make sure there will be no damage done to your furniture.
If there are pieces of furniture that we feel we won’t be able to move without the risk of damaging it, we will tell you beforehand and we’ll try to find a solution to the problem, together with you.

And more...

As much as we tried to put together a set of steps that are to be implemented in the process of floor sanding, we have learned that every house is different and every homeowner's expectations are different.

Being able to customize our approach in order to meet our customer's needs and expectations is something that we're known for. If you feel that our website wasn't detailed enough to make you understand our process or if you feel that your needs are different, contact us for a free estimate and we'll work with you to make this experience as smooth as possible.
