The Grove Installation Schedule

Welcome to the job blog for The Grove, 8929 202 St, Langley, BC. This job blog will provide you with regular updates about your flooring project.

Our goal during the carpet installation is to make the process as smooth and pain-free as possible. If you have any concerns, feel free to contact the office at 604-856-4799.

The lead installer of our on-site installation crew is Tamim. Feel free to say hello to him and the crew – they are wearing MIRA Floors & Interiors shirts.

 

Current Update:

Oct 4th: We are ahead of schedule!! Building D should now be complete! Building E tear out to be complete today and 4th Floor install to be complete today. Building E Floors 1-3 are to be complete by Oct 6th. This leaves us with the exciting news that we hope to be complete this whole project by end of day October 6th!!!

 

**GLUE: The nature of the glue for carpet tile is that we have to trowel it out and then let it tack up. So it has to sit for a short period of time. During this time, ideally nobody walks through the hallway. When we are in install mode in your building please when opening your door, do a quick look to make sure there is no wet glue in front of your door. If there is our installer should be within talking distance, so problem solve the timing with our team. Things in A Building have gone well and we thank you all for your patience. **

 

Updated Schedule:

Building A:
Tear-Out: Sept 17 – 18
Install: Sept 18-21

Benefits of Hiring Professional Consultants For Your Commercial Painting & Flooring Projects

This Month, we’re pleased to offer a guest blogger, our affiliated commercial painting company, Wolfgang Commercial Painters’ Marketing Manager Deana Srdic. Deana weighs in on the benefits of using a company which offers professional consultants.


Investing in your home should be a rewarding process from decision to make a change, research, selection of supplier and finally, the completed project. To ensure a successful interior design process, both MIRA Floors & Interiors and Wolfgang Commercial Painters offer complimentary, no obligation quotes and professional consultant services for window and floor coverings and paint colour.

Here’s our take on the top three benefits of working with a company offering a consultant:

1. A professional, third opinion

MIRA Floors & Interiors and Wolfgang Commercial Painter consultants are professionals. Their day to day business interactions are centered around helping you find the right window, floor and paint colour to perfect your space. They aim to complement personality, space restraints and end goals, completing the design process seamlessly. MIRA Floors & Interiors and Wolfgang Commercial Painters consultants offer value and can work on or off site, whenever is most suitable to you. Our consultants are a reliable third party when choosing colour and design schemes. Plus, they’ve got years of professional experience; they know what works and won’t.

2. Endless selection
Ideal window, floor and colour pairings are easily passed over and often not considered before making a decision. Our consultants suggest winning combinations that are timeless and suit the individual’s personality and needs. Our consultants listen first, then get to work creating palettes sure to please. They also bring along window covering, floor and colour samples for a tangible sample to test and discuss.

3. Simplicity!
Book a free consultation with MIRA Floors & Interiors or Wolfgang Commercial Painters and enjoy the benefits of a professional consultant immediately.

Replacing your windows and floors and repainting is an investment into preserving your home and building. Consultants allow your style and preference to shine when re-creating your personal space.
