How to Install Hardwood Floors
The most important steps in installing hardwood flooring include an in-home measure and a moisture test. Having your hardwood floor installed professionally ensures your new floors are being installed properly. Moisture testing is important 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.
Solid hardwood utilizes the nail or glue down method. These types of installations are permanent and ensure your hardwood floors will not shift with use.
Engineered hardwood mostly is available in floating floor systems. Floating floors allow for a lot of versatility, and do not need any adhesives since the planks click together.
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
We recommend installing hardwood in dry, cool places around your home. Since solid hardwood is sensitive to humidity and moisture, it should be installed in places with relatively low traffic like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Engineered hardwood features a more modern construction and can be installed in more places around your home. Engineered hardwood can handle areas with a lot of traffic like kitchens and hallways. They can even be installed in basements.
Be sure to avoid installing hardwood in bathrooms and laundry rooms because excessive moisture and humidity can damage wood.
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.
Engineered hardwood floors are the perfect option for a living room where you entertain a lot. Hardwood can add warmth and style to your living room, and will provide a talking point for your guests. You can choose to tie your hardwood in with your current décor or have it stand out.
