Premium hardwood flooring gives a home warmth like no other flooring type, and they make a space feel more expensive. So, homeowners are looking to Royal Flooring for ‘the best hardwood floor installers near me’ in Joliet.
The selection, expertise, and quality of services we offer help you secure the most value for investing in new hardwood flooring.
Joliet homeowners are already poised to make gains on their homes in the current housing market. Buyer competition and home prices have been skyrocketing since 2020, but they’re gradually losing momentum.
In November 2021, Joliet homes cost 16% more than a year prior, with more than 45% of houses selling for more than they were listed for. Homeowners are also enjoying rapid sales since Joliet homes are often spending just ten days on the housing market.
One of the best ways for Joliet homeowners to increase the figure they make on their homes is by getting hardwood flooring installation from Royal Flooring. Hardwood floors encourage buyers to pay more. Even realtors confirm that homes with hardwood floors sell fast and for up to 10% more.
Depending on what kind of budget and subfloor you’re working with, you have up to three options for hardwood flooring installation:
Here are summaries of the hardwood flooring types’ installation processes:
Since they don’t fix to the subfloor, floating wood floors move up and down slightly underfoot. This results in hollow-sounding footsteps and a softer feel when walking and standing. There are different noise and moisture control underlayments for floating wood floors.
During installation, the planks are arranged, measured, and cut along the walls. The first rows are placed down against the wall with spacers in between and nailed down by hand. As the installers work away from the wall, there is enough room to use the nailer machine. When the floor is covered, the installers replace any baseboards and molding.
As Joliet’s hardwood flooring professionals, Royal Flooring can also help you revive your existing hardwood floors.
Even with the most careful hardwood floor maintenance, the wood will eventually fade and show scratches over time. Luckily, most hardwood floors can go through four to six sanding and refinishing processes before they need replacing.
Royal Flooring hardwood restorations use special, dustless sanding equipment that reverses years of damage before applying a fresh, new stain. Refinishing with us will make the floors you already love last and look new.
We source our quality hardwood flooring products from trusted brands, including Armstrong, Shaw, Bruce, Mohawk, and Bella Cera. Compare the natural beauty of wood species like Walnut, Pine, Birch Oak, Maple, American Cherry, Hickory, and Kupay.
Choose whatever stain color and texture complements your unique home decor. We offer a satin-smooth classic finish, heavily scraped, wire-brushed, or reclaimed/distressed look.
Out of all the Joliet hardwood flooring professionals, the reason you should go with Royal Flooring for the best hardwood flooring is our Royal Promise:
Proper hardwood floor maintenance is vital to keep them in good condition. Use a broom with soft bristles to sweep and dust with microfiber. Be very careful about moisture, clean up messes right away, and only use cleaning products approved for hardwood. Additionally, use curtains and blinds to limit sun exposure, and trim pets’ nails to minimize scratches. Use caution when moving heavy objects.
Sometimes hardwood boards are unfinished until the installers put them in, which takes longer since the finish is an additional step. But prefinished hardwood flooring is one less step and can be done in just one day.
The most trustworthy and affordable Joliet flooring installers are Royal Flooring.
Hardwood installation costs depend on many variables. The type of product you choose (engineered/solid, prefinished/unfinished), the size of the space, and the amount of material all determine the total cost.
