How to Install Hardwood Floors
Professional installation is the way to go for any flooring. Having your hardwood flooring professionally installed means your floors are in good hands. Our installer first prepare the subfloor to make sure it's 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.
Engineered hardwood floors come in floating floor options. These planks require no adhesive or nails during installation and simply click together. Solid hardwood flooring on the other hands needs to be glued or nailed down to ensure the plank will not shift. 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 because of high moisture.
