How to Install Hardwood Floors
No matter the type of flooring we always recommend hiring a professional to get the job done. Before even installing hardwood flooring, our installers with do an in-home measure and moisture test. Moisture testing is one of the most important steps before installation because if the subfloor has high moisture content, it could lead to damage over time. Our installers also prepare your subfloor and made sure it is flat, clean, dry and free of imperfections.
When installing solid hardwood, you have the option to glue or nail down the planks to ensure there is no shifting. Engineered hardwood utilizes the floating floor system and lock together, meaning there is no need for adhesives.
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
We recommend installing hardwood in dry, cool places around your home. Solid hardwood tends to be sensitive to changes in temperature and moisture, so it should be installed in places with relatively low traffic like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Engineered hardwood can handle areas with a lot of traffic like kitchens and hallways due to its layered construction, and even basements.
Be sure to avoid installing hardwood in bathrooms and laundry rooms because of the excessive moisture and humidity.
Hardwood is a clean and healthy option for bedrooms. It will transform your bedroom into a warm and stylish retreat that you cannot wait to return to after a long day. Solid hardwood flooring will add value to your space and an elegant atmosphere.
If you entertain guests often in your home, then consider engineered hardwood flooring. Hardwood can add warmth and style to your living room, and will provide a talking point for your guests. Let your hardwood floor stand out or stick with your current home décor.
