How to Install Hardwood Floors
If you want your floors installed right and on time, then considered having your hardwood professionally installed. Before your hardwood is even installed, one of our flooring professionals will come to your home and do an in-home measure and 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. It is also important to make sure your subfloor is flat 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?
Hardwood is durable and beautiful, but can be limited when it comes to where it can be installed. Solid hardwood is sensitive to moisture and a lot of traffic, so it should be installed in areas of your home 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 in Bedrooms
Hardwood flooring opens up small spaces and adds natural warmth to your room as well as style and luxury. Hardwood will not trap dust or dirt, so harmful allergens do not have a place to thrive, leaving your floors clean and healthy.
Hardwood in Living Rooms
Hardwood offers unique style and character that cannot be replicated by other flooring. If you have children or pets living in your home, then choose an engineered option. Engineered hardwood is designed to handle more traffic and is more durable and stable than solid hardwood.
