This type of molding is installed along the baseboards to provide a more finished look and to aid with cleaning, especially in corners. Also shock-resistant, durable, and humidity-resistant, base and shoe molding is made from a variety of wood types to match or complement your existing or new floor. Installation is provided as a finishing touch after we’ve completed laying your new floor.
A hardwood floor is only as good as the subfloor below it. Before we install any flooring type, we assess your subfloor and provide repairs or preparation as required. Repairs involve removing the broken-up concrete or rotten wood portions, and analyzing the quality of the wood that sits over the joists before we form a strategy to fix the damage. Preparation includes using flat spud bar to remove drywall and a notched flooring trowel to remove staples. Finally, we’ll check the floor for levelness and squeaks, and smooth out any low spots with a flooring edger.
