Preparing for Flooring Installation


  • Unless otherwise specified, the customer is responsible for movement of all contents, furniture and appliances before the installer arrives.
  • If the installer is moving furniture (must be purchased), the customer is responsible to remove all breakable and loose items (such as bedding, drawer/shelf contents, lamps, vases, toys, etc.) and must disconnect and remove all electronics (TVs, computers, etc.) before the installer arrives.
  • Our subcontractors cannot disconnect or reconnect gas appliances, dismantle or move aquariums, pianos or pool tables. Alternate arrangements will need to be made by the customer.
  • If the customer is removing exisiting flooring:
    • Unless otherwise discussed, remove all exisiting layers of flooring, down to the subfloor, leaving it completely exposed
    • Remove any residual staples, adhesive and ensure the subfloor is flat, smooth and dry to receive new flooring
    • Leave all existing tack-trip (aka smooth edge) for new carpet installations
    • Sweep or vacuum the area
  • Hardsurface products will be delivered 24-72 hrs prior to installation to acclimatize. Product cannot be placed in the garage during this period.
  • The customer is responsible to provide adequate heat, power, light, humidity and ventilation 72 hrs prior and throughout the duration of the installation.
  • If you have any concerns, questions or need to reschedule your installation, please contact your sales representative as soon as possible to discuss.

Note: The Carpet Studio strives to meet all timelines discussed; however, we do not have control over back-orders, shipping delays and/or manufacturing issues of our vendors. The duration of your installation is based on the inital scope of work; however, renovations do not always go as planned. The possibility exists for a delay, resulting in the potential for your installation date and/or timeframe to be changed.


  • Unless otherwise arranged, installers arrive in the morning between 8:00 – 10:00am.
  • To correct unforeseen floor surface defects, not apparent during the time of measure, additional charges may be required after the installation has begun.
  • Changes to floor thicknesses will affect existing baseboard and door trims, paint, cabinets, appliances, doors, etc.
  • Scuffing of baseboards and wall paint may occur during baseboard and/or carpet installation. The Carpet Studio will attempt to minimize any damage but cannot guarantee against such occurrences. Caulking and paint touch up is not included.


  • We strongly recommend holding on to any extra material leftover after installation for future maintenance. Return of product must be authorized by your sales representative. A restocking fee and freight charges to return to the supplier will apply.
  • If an e-mail address is provided, floor care and maintenance information will be e-mailed after the job is complete and invoiced. Product care and warranty information is also available at any time on the applicable manufacturer’s website.
  • Acceptable forms of payment are: personal cheque, Visa, MasterCard, bank debt card, cash or Interac e-transfer (please send to
