About Our Littleton Floor Installation Service
You’re building a new home and need to think about flooring. There are a few questions you need to ask yourself, such as what kind of look suits your personal style and living space most? Or what material makes the most sense for your family? Below, we’ll give you a rundown of the most popular flooring options to help in the decision-making process, along with some details about how they're installed.
You can’t beat the natural beauty of hardwood flooring. With options including oak, hickory, maple, and walnut, you can tailor your flooring to match your unique design style preferences and match existing or new wooden furniture. Hardwood flooring installation can be a finicky process, and we will always be sure that the wood has acclimated to your indoor climate before installing it.
After the wood is ready, we’ll need to prep your floors by removing baseboards (if present) and leveling the floor. Using an underlayment to protect your subfloor from moisture, the next step in the process involves either nailing, gluing, or locking hardwood planks into place. The method we choose depends on the type of hardwood floor you have chosen. Solid hardwood floors will need to be laid plank by plank and secured with glue or nails, while click-lock planks do not.
The preparation for tile floors is the same as for wooden floors and involves ensuring that the floor is level before prepping the underlayment. We’ll then need to place and drive in the backer board before filling and covering the joints. Next, we’ll lay mortar and plan out the tile pattern, then lay the tile. Then comes the grout. Our flooring installers must work fast with grout as it is a fast-drying liquid. Tile is an excellent choice for homes with kids and pets. There are many different types to choose from, including ceramic, slate, stone, quartz, glass, and more.
The success of laminate floors is highly dependent on preparation. We need to make sure that the subfloor is flat, clean, and solid before we begin. Once it is, we can lay underlayment, prepare the door jambs, and lay the laminate. There are many advantages to choosing laminate flooring, including being easy to clean and maintain, durable, affordable, and quick to install.
Luxury vinyl plank is very easy to install, is durable, moisture resistant, and does not collect stains easily. There are many different colors to choose from to suit the style of your home, and the installation process is similar to laminate, though the quality is slightly higher. Vinyl floors are one of the most popular types in Colorado homes.
In addition to the above types of flooring, we can also install:
- Engineered wood
- Natural stone
- And many more!

Flooring Installation in Littleton | FAQs
With so many different flooring options, it can be difficult to know where to start. Whether you’re just beginning the process or already have your preferred floors picked out and ordered, you may still have questions about the process. See below for the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions–and don’t hesitate to reach out if you need any more!
What is Better, Vinyl or Laminate Flooring?
It depends on what you categorize as “better.” If you’re looking for a type of flooring that has higher value and is more durable, stable, moisture-resistant, and stain-resistant, then vinyl is the better choice. Laminate will cost less, but it should not be used in rooms with heavy traffic and humidity. If you choose laminate for your kitchen, it can become damaged fairly quickly. If it’s aesthetic appeal you’re after, you may also find vinyl to be the better choice. Made from a higher-quality material, it’s a relatively low-cost flooring choice with a premium look.
Can I Install My Own Flooring?
Installing your own flooring isn’t out of the realm of possibilities, but you should be aware of proper installation techniques and have all of the right tools and equipment. The equipment required to install flooring can include:
- Vinyl & Linoleum: flat bar, floor scraper, straight edge, adhesive trowel, level, tape measure, floor roller, chalk line, utility knife, linoleum cutter.
- Floating Wood & Hardwood: chop, miter saw, floor scraper, flat bar, tapping block, tape measure, pull bar, level, rubber mallet, spacers, jig saw, pneumatic flooring nailer, air compressor, drill bits, drill, nail set, table saw.
- Ceramic Tile: level, sponge, notched towel, wet saw, spacers, nippers, buckets, tile saw, grout float, tape measure.
These are most of the tools needed for each job, but you will also need to procure the actual flooring. If you would rather skip the hassle, leave it to our experienced team of flooring contractors. We will arrive with all the supplies required for the job, and if you need us to pick up the actual flooring as well, we can!
What is the Most Affordable Type of Flooring to Install?
There are many different types of flooring to choose from, and within each category, a range of prices vary in terms of design, quality, thickness, variety, and so on. If you have a certain budget to stick to, let us know. We can help you pick out the type of flooring that is right for your home and budget. With that said, if you are looking for the most budget-friendly type, ceramic tile and vinyl planks top the list.
Do I Need to Remove All Furniture Before Flooring Installation in Littleton?
Yes. No matter what type of flooring you are having installed, you will need to remove all of your furniture, rugs, and accents from the floor. We recommend getting a friend to help you move heavy couches and entertainment centers. There’s no need to clean your existing flooring, such as carpet, as we will be removing it before the installation process. Just be sure the area is completely free from obstructions. This will help make the installation process run more efficiently.
