Let’s take a look at the top 4 reasons to start your flooring project this summer:


Let’s be honest, installing floors can kick up quite a bit of dust and sand. Thanks to summer, you can fling open your windows and invite the breeze in to do the cleaning for you. So open up those windows wide and let the sunshine flood in!

Natural Light:

Long summer days mean more daylight, and that translates to more time to work on your project. Plus, with bright, natural light, you can accurately match colours for a stunning result.

Moving Furniture:

Taking on a big flooring project often means playing musical chairs with your furniture. This can be a breeze when you leverage the outdoor spaces during dry, sunny weather.

Open Doorways:

During the installation process, you might need to keep doors and windows open. In winter, that’s an invitation for a chilly draft. But in summer? No sweat!

So, Manitoba, let’s make the most of our quicksilver summers! There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of wrapping up a major project and boosting your home’s value. So, get out there and make your home the masterpiece it deserves to be!
