Installation is major construction. We install an average of 300 to 500 square feet per day. This average may vary due to the number of room sizes. We are installing hardwood flooring close to your existing walls. Our workers are experienced and knowledgeable. However, please realize that we are working against walls and need to nail as close to the wall as possible in order to have your flooring firmly nailed in place.
There will be dust during installation due to cutting of hardwood flooring. If at any time during or after installation you have a question or concern, please speak to the installer immediately or call our office.
During the sanding process, dust in your home is inevitable and we will hang sheets to help keep dust levels down. We sand an average of 1000 square feet per day depending upon the condition of the floor.
Staining or Natural is the first coat applied. First coat is applied on Day One if sanding is completed. The first coat takes approximately 3 to 4 hours to completely dry. Longer drying times may occur due to weather and/or using a dark stain color. When the floor is dry, you may walk on it, taking care to not scratch off any stain color.
Finishing consists of two final coats of polyurethane. These coats are completed on Days 2 and 3 providing sanding and first coat were completed on Day 1. On Day 2, the coat of polyurethane applied takes approximately 6 to 8 hours to dry. The final coat will be completed once the 2nd coat is completely dry and takes approximately 8 to 10 hours to dry. Weather conditions are a major factor in drying times. During the winter, keep your heat turned up and in the summer have your A/C on - this will keep an even flow of air moving which helps drying times.
Each day once the floor dries, you may walk on it if needed. 24 hours after the final coat has dried you may move your furniture back in. Do not slide anything across your floors or it will leave scratches. Rugs may be put down after 10 days of the final coat of polyurethane.
