When it comes to hardwood, customers can choose between solid wood and engineered wood. Solid wood floors are made from a single piece of hardwood and are known for their durability and long lifespan. Engineered wood flooring is made of many layers, with a hardwood veneer layer on top. Engineered flooring is often more affordable than solid wood and is ideal for areas with fluctuating humidity levels.Acclimation and installing hardwood floors
Before installing hardwood, it's crucial to let the flooring acclimate to the room's temperature and humidity levels. This step helps prevent the flooring from expanding, contracting, or warping after installation. Ideally, the flooring should be stored in the room where it will be installed for at least three days before installation.
The installation process involves preparing the subfloor, laying down an underlayment, and then installing the flooring. Once the subfloor is ready, the hardwood is installed by either nailing it down or gluing it in place. The flooring is then sanded and finished to create a smooth and uniform surface. Our professional installers will ensure that your floors are installed correctly and efficiently.
