You will need to collect all the tools before an installation, or at least ensure that your flooring company has these tools on hand. A jamb saw, a panel saw, an installation kit, a rubber mallet, a tape measure, and a pencil are all important to the designing and installation of new hardwood flooring. They should have the material, a vapor shield, flooring nails, duct tape, and caulk to help complete the job.
When all the materials are accounted for, the work can begin! Check the humidity levels before beginning work to eliminate the risk of warping the wood. Ask your company to provide safety equipment to all employees to mitigate the risk of injury. Talk to flooring installation companies near you to find the best people to work on your home. With these steps, you will be ready to start your installation project.
