How to Install Hardwood Floors

Professional installation is the way to go for any flooring, and with hardwood it assures you that your investment is being properly handled. 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. 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. Engineered hardwood does not need adhesives and comes in floating floor options because of their sturdy construction. Solid hardwood needs to be permanently installed so it doesn’t shift, and can be glued or nailed down 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?

Although hardwood is a beautiful and durable floor, 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.

Other than that, 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.
