The Process - Installing
To achieve a successful hardwood floor installation we need a dry, smooth subfloor, if necessary we install a new plywood subfloor. In some instances we can leave vinyl flooring down if the sub floor is thick enough, and if the vinyl is in good condition. We remove all carpeting, trim, nails and tacks.
Laminate wood flooring comes from the factory already finished and ready to install. To begin installing all we need is a clean, smooth and dry subfloor. Prefinished flooring has the following advantages: Very little dust and debris. No smell caused by the finish. Comparable in price to a regular hardwood floor installation. Has the same life span as regular flooring. More convenient for the homeowner as it can be accessed immediately upon installation. Approximately 40% of our installs are with prefinished flooring.
Engineered flooring consists of a thin laminate or veneer that's glued to a plywood base. Engineered flooring expands and contracts less due to humidity fluctuations therefore this type of flooring can be installed in a basement or over concrete (below grade).
Raw Hardwood Floor Installation:Â The regular installation requires the same subfloor preparation as the prefinished. The only difference is that sanding and finishing is necessary. Note: We offer a "Sanding Only" option where the homeowner is responsible for the finishing.
