Hardwood is an excellent option for your next home makeover. It is a high-quality material that retains its natural aesthetic for many years.
Hardwood installation replaces the flooring in your home with high-quality wood. We offer a wide range of hardwood flooring with 39 combinations of color and style, whether traditional and rustic or elegant and modern.
Hardwood flooring is also durable and lasts for years. Depending on the type of floor selected, it can be sanded and refinished to ensure top quality.
A hardwood floor installation is an excellent investment to enhance a home’s look and value.
Before installation, there are two initial options to choose from – solid hardwood and engineered hardwood.
Solid wood flooring is made of solid planks of wood which give extra insulation and soundproofing. It is also more durable and can be sanded and refinished several times. Moisture and temperature changes may alter the wood flooring, so special care should be taken.
Engineered wood flooring has a wood plank at the top and bottom and composite material in its center. This prefinished flooring is easy to install and maintain with no sanding required. Engineered wood is also less susceptible to warping.
We offer a great selection of affordable hardwood flooring. Our professional team also offers advice and information about your flooring options and the installation process.
Installation of hardwood flooring costs average between $6 to $15 per square foot. Higher grade materials and installation can range from $12 to $23. Solid and engineered hardwood installation costs are comparable.
Installing hardwood floors on your own is possible. But, the homeowner will likely need to buy or rent specific tools to complete the job such as a flooring nailer or a floor sander.
Hardwood floors have a distinct advantage over laminate and carpeted floors. With attentive care, hardwood can keep around 75% of its value in a home resale. This can offset installation costs and make your project a great long-term investment. It will be several decades before a flooring replacement is needed.
Hardwood isn’t the only choice for proper flooring, though. We have several flooring options to best suit your home. Though they won’t have the same longevity, these materials are tasteful and affordable.
Homeowners can perform a wood floor installation with lots of DIY experience, but it’s a difficult job that typically requires training and experience.
It’s recommended that you hire a professional flooring installer to ensure that your installation goes smoothly. Unlike other materials, it’s difficult to fix mistakes with hardwoods, and you risk damaging the materials.
Here’s a rundown of the installation process.
Look through our hardwood flooring catalog to see what works best for your home.
Many variations are available in a range of colors and sizes so you can find what you need to enhance the look of your home
You can also select whether you would like finished or unfinished wood to be installed.
Wood flooring can be glued or nailed down depending on the subflooring. For concrete subflooring, gluing is best. If there are floor joists directly beneath, then nailing is necessary. For a wooden subfloor, either option is possible.Prepare Your Room For Installation
We’ll ensure that the subfloor is clear of residue, dirt, and dust.
The boards should be left in the room where they will be installed and left on a flat surface for three to five days. To make things quick, we’ll arrange the boards in the proper layout prior to installation.
This is done to ensure that the boards acclimate to the specific humidity and temperatures of that room, which prevents warping.
If you have floor joists as your subfloor, we’ll take care to ensure that your hardwood planks are perpendicular to those.
Our craftsmen take time to nail each board in perfectly the first time, ensuring that it’s securely fastened to the joists or subfloor. Then, we apply wood putty to cover the nail holes.
Lastly, we sand and finish the floor.
