How to Install Hardwood Floors
When it comes to hardwood flooring, we always recommend going with a professional installer. The most important steps in installing hardwood flooring include a free in-home measure and a moisture test. Moisture testing is an important step our installers take because wet or damp subfloors can cause damage to your hardwood over time. Our installers also prepare your subfloor and made sure it is flat, clean, dry and free of imperfections.
They type of hardwood flooring you choose will determine the type of installation you need. Solid hardwood requires being nailed or glued down, whereas engineered hardwood comes in floating floors and can lock together without needing any adhesives. With hardwood flooring, our installers make sure to leave a gap between the planks and the walls to allow the hardwood to naturally expand. They also make sure there are no gaps between the planks to ensure a seamless surface.
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
Solid hardwood is naturally sensitive to changes in temperature and moisture, so it should be installed in places with low traffic like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Engineered hardwood’s layered construction provides more stability than solid wood, and allows it to handle areas with a lot of traffic like kitchens and hallways. They can even be installed in basements with moisture control.
Be sure to avoid installing hardwood in bathrooms and laundry rooms due to excessive moisture and humidity which can damage wood.
Hardwood in Bedrooms
Solid hardwood flooring will transform your bedroom into a personal retreat. Solid hardwood flooring features unmatched characteristics no other flooring can replicate. Solid hardwood adds a natural warmth to the room, making it feel warm, comfortable, and inviting after a long day.
Hardwood in Living Rooms
Engineered hardwood flooring is the best choice for spaces in your home like living rooms. You use your living room to entertain guests or spend family time, so a durable floor is the perfect option. Impress your guests with quality hardwood flooring that can also withstand traffic and is not sensitive to accidental spills.
