How to Install Hardwood Floors
Just like with all flooring projects, we always recommend having professionals install your flooring. First, we'll prepare the subfloor to make sure it's ready for installation by making sure it is dry, flat, and free of imperfections. This is especially important because we certainly don't want there to be moisture underneath the hardwood planks. Once we give your subfloor the green light, we begin installation.
Solid and engineered hardwood floors can be installed in different ways. Most engineered hardwood comes in floating floors and can lock together. Solid hardwood is usually glued or nailed down for a permanent install. It is important to leave a gap between the base of the walls and the floors because hardwood naturally expands over time. Once all of the planks are in place and installed, we'll check the surface to make sure there aren't any gaps between planks.
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
Homeowners live hardwood flooring for its beauty and value adding benefits, but it isn't the best option for all settings. In fact, hardwood, even engineered hardwood, isn't suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas with moisture. At the same time, we don't recommend choosing solid hardwood for high traffic areas like commercial settings. Hardwood is, however, appropriate for home settings such as bedrooms and living rooms.
Hardwood in Living Rooms
Impress your guests by installing hardwood flooring in your living room. Hardwood offers style and character that simply cannot be replicated. If you live in a home with children and pets, we recommend opting for engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood is more durable and more stable than solid hardwood.
Hardwood in Bedrooms
Hardwood can transform your bedroom into a private retreat, and it can handle the moderate levels of foot traffic you'd expect in bedrooms. Also, hardwood will not trap dirt, dust, and allergens, so it is a clean and healthy flooring option for bedrooms.
