As one of the most important parts of your home, floors are as much about aesthetics as they are about function. The type of flooring you choose for your home will determine your maintenance and cleaning routines over the next few decades and will be considered when remodeling your kitchen and bathroom or changing up the style of your rooms. In other words, your floors are a big part of your home life, and aside from being the material necessary to have somewhere to stand, they'll be something you either enjoy looking at or can't wait to rip up. Flooring installation in Chicago is then equally as important as the Chicago handyman you choose for the job.

How We Handle Flooring Installation in Chicago

Flooring installation in Chicago can refer to installing a floor for the very first time in your new home, but it can also mean replacing an existing floor with a new one of your choosing. Flooring installation is very popular during bathroom and kitchen remodeling projects, where tile is often the preferred choice.

Whether you're tired of your old floors, see they have excessive wear and tear or are installing floors for the first time, we can help. We'll handle everything from the measurements to the finishing touches. All you have to do is pick your preferred type of floor, design, and colors! See below for a thorough walkthrough of what our Chicago flooring installation process entails.


The first step to your new beautiful floors is getting to know your wants, needs, and the actual measurements of the floor. At Mr. Handyman of Lincoln Park, we're nothing if not thorough, so we'll arrive at the prescheduled time of your appointment and have a discussion with you about your hopes and dreams in terms of your flooring. Once we understand your vision, we'll take measurements of your current floors to find out how many square feet will be needed for the project. Once we know how many feet of flooring material will be needed, the next order of business is to give you a quote. Keep in mind that the quality and type of flooring you choose will directly affect the overall price of your service. We know flooring project costs are a concern to homeowners, but you can count on us for transparency every step of the way.


Once your flooring materials are delivered to your home, we can get started with the preparation. Depending on the current state of your floors, we will either be able to get started on prepping the subfloor right away, or if you currently have floors installed, we'll need to remove them. While sometimes it's possible to install new flooring material over old material, in many cases, it makes more sense to remove the old floors first to ensure your new floor is completely level. Other preparation steps include removing baseboards, doors, and furniture from rooms.

Floor Installation

When your subfloor has been prepped, we'll need to lay out and secure your new flooring. Working meticulously to ensure no detail is missed, we want to ensure your installation is completed correctly the first time to prevent the need for premature repairs and replacements or run-ins with water damage in the near future. Our installation process will differ from material to material, but you can count on our professional team to create stunning flooring in your home.

Final Touches

When your flooring is installed, there may still be additional work to be done to ensure your project is complete. For example, you may wish for us to take care of your baseboard trim installation as well or apply grout sealer to the grout between your porcelain tiles. These finishing touches will protect your floors and ensure they remain in great shape, but some final touches, such as rehanging doors, contribute to putting your home back together after your installation. 

Types of Flooring We Install

  • Tile: There is a wide range of materials available within the tile flooring category. As one of the most popular materials for kitchens, bathrooms, and patios, tile has excellent moisture resistance, is easy to clean, and is durable. 
  • Vinyl: With affordable and luxury options, vinyl plank is an excellent option for floors throughout your entire home. A popular choice for those who would like to mimic the look of wood but want the durability, resistance to water damage, and scratch-resistance of tile, vinyl flooring comes in planks, sheets, and squares.
  • Laminate: A multi-layered flooring with a printed image on top, laminate flooring installation in Chicago is versatile. While vinyl flooring is completely synthetic, laminate has a fiberboard core, which makes it the ideal flooring choice for high-traffic areas.

To prepare your home for your flooring installation in Chicago, you should remove all breakables and furniture from the floor. In some cases, a Chicago handyman can help remove furniture, but be sure to discuss this with us before your installation date. Depending on where the flooring is to be installed, you will need to disconnect your appliances from the gas lines or electrical outlets as well, clean out closets, and remove pictures or mirrors from walls.
