How to Install Hardwood Floors
Professional installation is your best bet to have your floors installed right and on time. The most important steps in installing hardwood flooring when you go through us include a free in-home measure and a moisture test. Moisture testing is an important step in the installation process because wet or damp subfloors can cause damage to your hardwood over time. Installers will also prepare your subfloor and made sure it is flat, clean, dry and free of imperfections. When it comes to hardwood, there should be no gaps between the planks, but a gap between the floor and walls is needed to allow the wood to naturally expand.
The different hardwood constructions can be installed using different methods. Solid hardwood requires being nailed or glued down, whereas engineered hardwood comes in floating floors and can lock together without needing any adhesives.
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
Solid hardwood is naturally sensitive to changes in temperature and moisture and 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.
Places around your home with excessive moisture like bathrooms and laundry rooms are not well suited for any type of hardwood flooring.
Hardwood Flooring in Bedrooms
Hardwood flooring opens up small spaces and adds natural warmth to your room. Transform your bedroom into a personal retreat with solid hardwood flooring by not only adding style but also value. Solid hardwood is a great choice for bedrooms and is easy to care for.
Hardwood in 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. Engineered hardwood floors are designed to handle spaces with a lot of activity and are a great choice for families with children and pets.
