Flooring installation


Here's what you need to know about professional flooring installation

The best way to protect your new floor investment is professional flooring installation. The process ensures your peace of mind and the proper function of your floors. No matter which material you choose, this is always your best option.

For some materials, professional installation is quick and easy. For others, it takes more time, precision, and special tools. And it pays to know a little more about each of your options as you begin shopping.

What kind of installation do you need?

Each material requires a different flooring installation technique. If you need a quick and easy installation, you'll want to choose products that match. Laminate and luxury vinyl are excellent options that take a day or less to install.

If you have more time for the installation to go longer, you can choose a different material. Solid hardwood, stone, and porcelain tile, for instance, need more time. But these floors last much longer, so the extended installation time is worth it.

Quality installation makes a world of difference in the appearance of your flooring. An installation completed right can make budget-friendly flooring look high-end, but conversely, a second-rate installation can leave even the best flooring with obvious seams, lumps, gapping and other issues. It’s important to remember that mistakes made during installation can comprise the appearance, functionality and lifespan of your flooring. Dedicated Flooring uses qualified professionals to ensure the best installation possible.


Whether you love hardwood flooring or ceramic tile, natural stone or red oak, one thing to always consider is what the flooring installation costs will be. Of course, these installation costs will depend on the type of floor you ultimately select and the specific requirements of each to have the flooring installed. Generally, there are additional fees for removal and disposal of existing floor, sub-floor leveling, and cleaning and furniture removal. Take the time to speak with an expert about options and costs associated with installation. Many manufacturer warranties require a floor is professionally installed for the warranty to be valid.


The sub-floor lies beneath the top surface flooring and is an important consideration for proper installation. Prior to installation, you’ll want to make sure your sub-floor is clean of debris, level, dry and sturdy. That way, you can minimize allergens, dust, mold and mildew that can form when a sub-floor is not properly prepared. Typically, the preferred sub-floor for each installation is found within the installation guide and can vary from one flooring retailer to another. A properly kept sub-floor is critical to the longevity of any floor regardless of product type.
