Many people forget to revitalize their flooring when they are updating their houses. If you’re looking to sell your house or if you just don’t have a lot of time, you might want a flooring installation that doesn’t take very long. While there are going to be a lot of different factors that will weigh into the length of time for your installation, there are some general rules of thumb. It also depends on what kind of flooring you have at the moment.
What Floor Do You Have?
If you have carpet, the removal of the carpet will likely be one of the faster removals. Carpet can be cut and removed fairly quickly. Once it starts to come up, a capable carpet puller can remove large amounts of the carpet. Alternately, if you have individual tile flooring, the removal will take quite some time. Discrete tiles, such as those in a bathroom, have to be removed individually. So, that will complicate how long it takes to install your new flooring.
Also, the shape of your floor will factor into how quickly it can be stripped. A square room is obviously easier to strip than one with a lot of different areas.
What Floor Do You Want?
Once the old flooring has been removed, it’s time for your new flooring installation. Typically, wood, faux wood, and tile are applied by gluing them to the subfloor. This is done by spreading an adhesive and arranging the tiles or planks. A good installer can do this fairly quickly. Carpet usually is a little bit faster than tile or wood. Vinyl is also fairly quick because it can come in sheets.
