How To Speed Up Your Installs Without Sacrificing Quality

How To Speed Up Your Installs Without Sacrificing Quality

Oct 18th 2023

What would you do with your free time if you could do your installs in a fraction of the time? Instead of being stuck on a single job, you could have more time to book new customers. Or you could spend more time with family and friends. Or hit the golf course. Or go hunting. Or whatever you want! The possibilities are endless.

You don't have to cut corners to get a beautiful, site-finished floor installed in record time. Innovations and efficient systems mean that you don’t have to sacrifice quality.

Here are 3 tips to speed up your installation process.

1. Use Bona’s New Pourable Glue + Standing Trowel

Pouring glue can speed up your process by up to 30%!

How does it do this? First, with Bona’s new Quantum Flow, you don’t have waste time scraping glue out of your bucket. You can pour a whole line like you’re pouring finish and then trowel right off of that.

Also, you’re not going to get messy reaching into the bucket to scoop glue out. Stay clean and go straight to work.

If you don’t want to have to get up and down or walk around on your knees to trowel, Bona now offers a standing trowel too. With the flow of Bona’s Quantum Flow, it’s easier to move around which makes a standing trowel more practical now than ever. Adjusting to a standing trowel can take some time and it’s not for everyone, but if you practice a bit, you can go fast.

2. Install Hapwood from Howell Hardwood

Imagine only having to sand once before you're ready to put down stain or sealer. Because Hapwood is pre-sanded to 80 or 100 grit with virtually no overwood, you often only need to make one, maybe two passes after installation.

Howell’s time-tested five step manufacturing process creates boards that fit together perfectly regardless of width, style, or species, and eliminates issues caused by cupping and gapping.

Additionally, Hapwood engineered hardwood flooring remains stable and flat during seasonal humidity changes, so you don’t have to waste time with callbacks either.
