Experienced, trustworthy, and prepared to take care of any subfloor repair needs in Tacoma

Beneath the flooring you walk on lies the subfloor. When upgrading to new flooring like hardwood or carpet, this foundation needs to be level and strong. If not, your floor may look uneven, wear faster, and/or pose safety hazards. Before installing a new floor, ensuring the subfloor is in good condition is smart. Most flooring companies specify that the subfloor be properly leveled before laying their products. How can you tell if your subfloor is up to par? You'll need to remove the current flooring and have an expert inspect it. If you're unsure or suspect subfloor issues, contact us at Professional Flooring Installations.

PFI works with floors, but we also fix the base underneath, which some others might skip.

If you're thinking about getting new floors or putting in some fresh ones, but you find out your subfloor needs work, don't worry. We specialize in putting in floors, but we're also pros at fixing up the base underneath. Not every company does both. Sometimes, when you're getting ready to redo your floors, a contractor might hit pause. They might say they can't keep going until they've sorted out the subfloor. That's where we come in. We're Professional Flooring Installations, and we're here to handle all your subfloor repair needs in Tacoma, we can always go right into discussing your complete remodel plans. Here are some common problems we deal with:

Concrete's Ups and Downs: If you have an old concrete floor, there might be some prep work needed before installing new hard flooring. When covered by carpet, the bumps in the concrete might have been overlooked since carpet can hide many flaws. Sometimes, we can level only specific areas, while other times, the entire floor needs leveling. Have questions? Your flooring specialist can offer answers and might even provide an early estimate.

Those Noisy Floors: In homes, whether they're old or new, floors can sometimes creak as you walk on them. This can happen when the subfloor isn't securely attached to the frame underneath. Identifying this issue early allows us to secure those areas. While we can usually fix this problem, there are instances where the noise stems from causes that can't be repaired. Rest assured, we'll keep you updated on the situation.

 

Wobbly Plywood: In the Pacific Northwest, a lot of homes are constructed during rainy seasons, which can cause the subfloor to expand and warp. Before upgrading your floors, we'll address this issue. It might entail sanding down raised areas or using a special mixture to fill in any depressions. Once the old floor is removed, our team will evaluate the necessary steps to take.

 

Dipping Floors: Floors that sag down or that might feel soft often have water damage or may have been improperly installed. When it comes to water damage, we usually replace the affected section with brand new and fresh plywood. If the type of subfloor material is actually at the root of the problem, we will then inform you of the cost to change it.

Slanted or Tilted Floors: This issue is common in basements or homes built on "post and beam"-type of foundations. Solving this depends on the type of flooring you're installing. In basements, we usually focus on leveling the concrete with a particular flooring additive product. For wooden subfloors, we might add layers of plywood to even things out or work to fill in smaller depressions.

It is SO VERY IMPORTANT to ensure your subfloor is flat and sturdy before you begin installing new hardwood, laminate, luxury vinyl, carpet, or any flooring type. Professional subfloor repair or leveling sets the stage for success and extends the lifespan of your floors. Keep in mind, though, that the cost and complexity of subfloor fixes in Tacoma can vary. Rest assured, our experienced professionals provide honest assessments and estimates— and we're pretty darn accurate with both!
