- Contractors will not move certain items such as antiques, electronics, pianos, pool tables, waterbeds, aquariums, safes, pin ball machines, exercise equipment, sleep number beds, boxes/totes etc.

The morning of your scheduled install, our installers will arrive during the two hour window which you have scheduled. This time is to allow our crews to travel and to pick up any product that may be needed for installation.
Our installers will go over your new flooring prior to installation to assure that everything matches your anticipated products. At this time they will also go over any seam placement that may be needed
If you have purchased furniture moving, our installers will move furniture as directed by the job contract and detail.
If you have purchased removal of your existing flooring, our installers will begin to remove as directed by the job contract and detail. Please note, we are not able to remove any vinyl flooring or tiles in houses built prior to 2004, due to possible asbestos.
Our installers will then begin to install your new flooring, making sure that everything is in accordance with the manufacturer guidelines.
