Floor Prep Services

Floorscapes has earned a stellar reputation for our floor prep services. After all, a floor is only as good as the surface it's laid on. 

Floor Leveling Services

Claiming a floor will be 100% level isn't realistic. What we can say is that if you ask a number of local home remodeling companies to recommend floor prep services and floor leveling, Floorscapes would be top of the list. 

Our team is highly skilled when it comes to ensuring that the surface is flat, clean, and dry prior to installing a new floor.  

Floor Skimming

In a way, skimming a floor is comparable to getting stitches. Stitches bridge the gap left by a gouge in an otherwise smooth surface.  Floorscapes identifies problem spots and skims the surface, solving the problem before it exemplifies into a bigger issue. 

Subfloor Prep

Ditches, divots, and just plain downfalls are common in concrete subfloors.  However, causes of concern don't stop there. Bolstering the sub-straights and sanding seams is crucial to ensure the integrity of the subfloor and accuracy of installation.

You Need Floor Prep.

From residential to commercial, you'd be amazed at the unleveled surfaces we've seen. You could place a marble on the floor, watch it gain speed and take a quick curve in either direction. Now, imagine laying a floor on that surface. It might look decent off the rip, but after bearing the weight of average wear, the floor will quickly buckle and deteriorate. Granted, that's one of the more extreme scenarios. 

A question we face on a daily basis is, "Can't you just lay the floor on top of our old floor?" 9.9999 times out of 10, the answer is no, not without floor prep.  Flooring installation without floor prep is like eating soup with a fork -- it just doesn't work. Here's just one example. 

A homeowner might look at their tile floor and think it's a solid surface you can simply lay a new floor over, it's not.  Tile has grooves from the grout. One option is to skim over the tile to fill the grout sections, prep, then install the new floor. Another option is to remove the tile, prep the subfloor, and install the new floor.  However, the variable comes down to the overall plan. 

If a client is simply redoing a single room in their home, skimming, prepping, and installing may be the best option. Alternatively, if a client plans on installing the same floor throughout the entirety of a level, removing, building up the subfloor to bring the new install to the same level, prepping, and then installing is the best option. The best path forward varies depending on the project vision.  However, at the end of the day, finding a local flooring installer who can provide floor prep services is the way to go.

I had the pleasure of having Nate from FoorScapes put in a bathroom tile floor for me. The job Nate did exceeded my expectations!

Work was done beautifully. I had old carpeting removed from my spare bedroom/craft room and a wood floor installed. I love it. Scheduling was a little fluid but I understand complications can arise. They'll be doing another room for me next month.

Tom and the install team were all incredibly professional throughout the process! They responded right away to all of our calls and questions. The cost was reasonable compared to other contractors we reached out to. They were also very considerate with our infant daughter around the install site (pausing using a saw with her around without us having to ask!). And most importantly, the install looks flawless! I'd go back to them for another job in the future.

Our experience with Floorscapes was superior in every regard, and one of the best experiences we have ever had with professionals in remodeling type services. This is a company that does great work with their main business, but just as importantly pays attention to all the small things that can make the difference between a mediocre and superior experience. We wanted a hardwood floor installed in our home and Floorscapes quickly identified a high-quality product that fit the project and matched our ideas. Their craftsmen are experienced, very polite, and take obvious pride in doing in right the first time, with very close attention to detail. They involved us in each decision point and made options clear along the way. All the boxes were checked: punctual, cleaning the worksite carefully each day, and making efforts to be as unobtrusive as they could. Floorscapes also communicated in a highly professional, prompt manner that made us feel like a priority throughout the process. We were given detailed written (digital) estimates and were called and visited at the worksite by a supervisor to ensure that we were satisfied and clear on everything. There were no financial surprises and the entire transaction was transparent. If you're like us, you've noticed that the quality of everything seems to be slipping these days, in both products and services. It was great to find a company that does everything correctly, the way it used to be. If you are looking to have a flooring project done and want it done right, the first time, I strongly feel that you will have a very positive experience with Floorscapes. They will do an amazing job and treat you correctly.

I have used Floorscapes for installation of LPV in my kitchen, hallway, foyer, and then at a later date my living room. Jim and Tom are wonderful to work with and great people to have in your home. They very much enjoy what they do and their work is perfection. I highly recommend them (and have to many neighbors and friends).

Floorscapes just such a wonderful job with the entire process from Jim and Kayla coming out to my house to assess the project, to the final install. Kayla and Jim were so helpful with choosing floors. I was trying to match existing hardwood stain with a LVP and Kayla went above and beyond for me. We had countless phone calls, text messages and tons of samples sent to my house. She was always responsive when I had a question or had a new idea. When it came to the install Tom and the crew were WONDERFUL! They were very professional and knowledgable on the whole process. They included me in many decision making aspects of the project to ensure I would be happy with the work. They were very attentive to all the small details along the way. I couldn't be happier with the service and work Floorscapes provided and I can't wait to hire them again to replace more floors in my house!
