Flooring Installation Guide

Flooring Installation Guide

What you need to know for your installation project

Flooring Installation Guide

Before beginning your flooring installation project, it’s important to consider various factors such as the type of flooring you want, the installation method, and any furniture that needs to be moved during installation. The flooring installation process and cost can vary depending on the type of flooring you choose. For example, installing hardwood floors can be more complicated than installing laminate flooring due to the materials’ nature.

If you plan to install flooring in a room that is already furnished, you should consider how to move the furniture without causing any damage to the floors or furniture. Having flooring installation experts install your floors will ensure that your flooring is installed correctly and will help prevent any problems in the future.

  • A Carpet Land sales associate will calculate the sales total after the measurement. For pricing questions, please contact your sales associate.

  • Your sales associate will contact you within three business days with your estimate.
  • Your verbal or written approval is required to move forward with your order.


  • Upon approval, payment for material and tax is required, as well as a signed work order. Payments may be made via cash, check, or credit/debit card. We also offer financing options, subject to approved credit. The balance of your order will be due upon job completion.
  • We will order materials as soon as payment is received. Payments may be made over the phone, by mail, or in person. Payments made by mail may delay the ordering of materials.
  • Upon the arrival of special order materials or if in stock, orders will be scheduled for installation.


  • The room temperature must be at a minimum of 69F for at least 24 hours prior to the installation.
  • All rooms where flooring is being installed should be completely clear of furnishings prior to the scheduled installation; unless being moved by Carpet Land.
  • For a fee, our installers will move standard, empty furniture that does not require disassembly. Excessively large or heavy furniture may require additional fees to move.
  • Valuables, collectibles, lamps, wall hangings, bed coverings, and small items must be removed by the customer prior to the installation. Also, all closets must be cleaned out to waist level.
  • All electronic devices and items that would require tuning/leveling must be disconnected and moved by the customer prior to the flooring installation. Some examples would be grandfather clocks, pool tables, aquariums, televisions, computers, stereo systems, pianos, or antiques.


  • No flooring/carpet seam is invisible. The visibility of seams will vary with the type of carpet/flooring that you have purchased.
  • Please alert your installer to any concealed supply lines, audio/visual communications, or security system wiring to prevent damage during installation.
