Flooring Installation

A new floor brings many benefits, but installation is key

You enjoy many aesthetic and functional benefits when you install a new floor. Depending on the material you choose, flooring installation can take as little as a few hours or as long as two weeks. The installers at The Carpet Store in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, can complete any residential or commercial flooring job. First, our flooring specialists can help you find the right product for your home or business.


Carpet installation occurs after the subfloor is repaired if any damage is discovered when the existing floor is removed. Installers use a carpet stretcher to pull the carpet across the floor, so it lays flat throughout its lifespan. Seams are hidden, and tack strips are put in place. Some carpeting is glued to the subfloor.


One sheet of vinyl is cut from a roll to cover a small room while a larger room takes two or three sheets. An entire sheet can be glued to the subfloor or around the perimeter of the room only. Luxury vinyl comes in planks and tiles. This thicker vinyl usually clicks and locks together so a floating floor can be constructed.


Like luxury vinyl, laminate comes in planks and tiles that usually mimic hardwood and stone. While some brands are glued to the subfloor, most laminate fits together, so the floor floats over the subfloor. As with carpet and vinyl, a special underlayment must be placed beneath the laminate before it is installed.


Ceramic and porcelain tile installation are more complex than carpet, vinyl, and laminate installation. Porcelain, in particular, is hard to cut because it is brittle. Tiles are affixed to a fiber cement underlayment or a cement board with mortar. Then, the joints between tiles are filled with grout.

Solid hardwood

It takes one week to nail unfinished solid hardwood boards to a wood subfloor and then sand, stain, and seal those boards. Acclimation takes an additional week. Prefinished solid hardwood and engineered wood, constructed of a surface layer of hardwood and a plywood base, can be installed in one day.
