How to Install Hardwood Floors
We always recommend professional installation for any type of flooring including hardwood. You can trust us and our installers with your new floors. Our installer first prepare the subfloor to ensure your home is ready for installation by making sure it is dry, flat, and free of imperfections. We also do an in-home measure and moisture test before installation begins. This step is very important because you don't want there to be moisture underneath the hardwood planks, which will cause damage over time.
Most engineered hardwood floors come in a floating floor options. These planks require no adhesive or nails during installation and simply click together. Solid hardwood flooring needs to be nailed or glued down to the subfloor, as to ensure the planks will not shift with use. We make sure to leave a gap between your floors and the baseboards to allow room for the wood to naturally expand as it adjusts to your home.
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
Hardwood can be installed in places around your home like bedrooms, living rooms, and hallways, and engineered hardwood can be installed in kitchens and basements. Hardwood flooring is durable and beautiful however, it is not suited for every space in your home. That means you should avoid installing any type of hardwood in places like laundry rooms and bathrooms since those areas of your home see moisture on a daily basis.
Hardwood in Bedrooms
Hardwood will not trap dirt, dust, and allergens, so it is a clean and healthy flooring option for bedrooms. Since hardwood floors add value and style to your home, a hardwood floor in your bedroom will transform your space into a warm personal retreat.
Hardwood in Living Rooms
We recommend engineered hardwood flooring if you have an active family, or children and pets in your home. Installing hardwood flooring in your living room creates a warm and inviting space where your guests will want to gather, and will even provide a great talking point.
