The Truth About Replacing Your Floors


When you start thinking about replacing your floors, do you get overwhelmed? It can seem like a daunting task. You look around, see your furniture, and wonder, where would I put it all? I don’t want to move out of my house for weeks. How will we function without a kitchen? 

It may seem like replacing all floors in your home with vinyl plank flooring or hardwood flooring will take weeks and require you to move out. This is not the case, not even in large homes where all flooring is being replaced. The truth is most jobs can be done in 5 days or less.

Order of Installation

Riverbend Interiors has specialized crews that only install what they are great at. This means we have a crew that only installs vinyl plank flooring, a crew that only installs carpet flooring, a crew that only installs tile flooring and one that only installs hardwood flooring

Our specialized crews ensure the work is done quickly, with the best possible final product. There is also a proper order to the installations when doing multiple products. Tile goes first, then hard surface, and finally carpet. 

The Logistics of Furniture, Appliances and Baseboards

As professionals, we here at Riverbend have a system that allows you to stay in your home with minimal inconvenience. While it’s true you will have to move the little stuff and electronics, we move the large stuff out of and back into a room often on the same day. Our process means you can sleep in your room, and we move the furniture out of the room in the morning, lay the flooring, and then move the furniture back in before we leave that day. 

Flooring can be done in multiple small rooms in one day. The same goes for the kitchen. We move the appliances in and out with an air sled so as not to damage your new flooring. In most cases, it can be done in one day. The installation crews will remove and reinstall any baseboards and doors that need to come off for the installation. 

Riverbend will work closely with you to set a schedule day by day so you know what to expect and to make sure your world is not disrupted more than it has to be.

What to Expect Before the Installation

The installation process begins after you have accepted a quote from Riverbend Interiors. The product will be ordered, and once the order confirmation comes in, the Riverbend scheduler will work with you to choose the most convenient date and one that is the least disruptive to your life. 

Customers often choose when they are on vacation, but this is optional. At this point, the scheduler will let you know roughly how many days your job will take. A more detailed schedule will be shared a week before the installation date, and all the job details will be gone through, so you will know exactly what to expect.

What to Expect During Installation

On the agreed-upon date, the installation crew will arrive at your house. If you have questions about the installation process, you’ll meet with your lead installer about the details. You should have a pretty good idea of the plan before they arrive, but it’s always good to go over the details with the installer as they will better grasp the scope of work once they see the workspace. They will tell you how long they will work each day and what they expect to accomplish that day.  

Installing New Floors with Riverbend Interiors

That’s it! After the crew has completed the job, a Riverbend employee will reach out to ensure you are satisfied with the process and outcome. New flooring may sound like a huge undertaking, but it can be painless and rewarding with the professionals at Riverbend. 

The beauty and character you will add to your home will be worth the minor inconvenience of the installation. Whether you’re looking for vinyl plank flooring, hardwood flooring or carpet flooring, our professional team can help transform your home. Contact us today.
