You've done your homework, asked the questions, answered the expert’s questions and selected the product. It's not quite time to leave it to the experts yet though.
There are still a few things for you to do to prepare for the installation:
- Watch your children and pets. You love them, we love them but we don't love them while we are working on your installation. While they are adorable and cute, they are also quick and mischievous. We are working with heavy tools etc. and while we are very experienced at safety precautions, unexpected activity from children or pets could result in an accident. So please keep everyone safe and keep children and pets away from the area.
- Create alternative living spaces. While your floors are being done, you will not be able to use the room. This may mean making alternate arrangements. If you are replacing the floors in your bedroom, you may need to sleep in another bedroom or it may mean camping out in the living room. Bathrooms and kitchens also must be worked around. An extra bathroom is a huge help, or perhaps a neighbor can let you use their bathroom while yours is out of commission. The kitchen is difficult as well, so plan on having alternate cooking area or eat out while you are under construction.
- Make sure that someone is available to let in the installers in and answer any questions that may arise. This may mean taking some time off work, so please make the arrangements ahead of time. It will help make your installation smoother and quicker.
- Ask questions. We know this is a new process for you and there are a lot of questions. We are here for you every step of the way to help you. We will answer all your questions so that you can feel prepared and comfortable with the installation process.
