How to Install Hardwood Floors
No matter the type of flooring, we always recommend professional installation, and especially for hardwood flooring. Our installers will prepare the subfloor to make sure it's ready for installation by making sure it is dry, flat, and free of imperfections. This step is very important because you don't want there to be moisture underneath the hardwood planks, which will cause damage over time.
Solid and engineered hardwood floors can be installed in different ways.
Solid hardwood can be installed using two different methods, nail or glue-down. These types of installations are permanent and ensure your hardwood floors will not shift with use.
Engineered hardwood floors come 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 cool dry places around your home. Ideally solid hardwood should be installed in places with relatively low traffic like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Engineered hardwood is more versatile when it comes to where you can install it. 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 due to excessive moisture and humidity which can damage wood.
Hardwood Installation Options
Hardwood in Bedrooms
Hardwood will not trap dirt, dust, and allergens, so it is a clean and healthy flooring option for bedrooms. Since hardwood floors add value and style to your home, a hardwood floor in your bedroom will transform your space into a warm personal retreat.
Hardwood in Living Rooms
Hardwood offers style and character that simply cannot be replicated, so you should install it where all of your guests can see. Choose engineered hardwood flooring if you have an active family, or children and pets in your home.
