Should I Install Hardwood Flooring?

Are you a parent? Engineered hardwood flooring is wise if you have toddlers in your home. It’s easier to clean than carpet and can withstand years of abuse caused by children and their toys. Hardwood flooring doesn’t harbour allergens: a Godsend for kids who suffer from allergies. Solid hardwood fares better for families with older children or no children. When it comes to pets and smaller children, solid hardwood will be put to the test when it comes to dings and scratches. The good news is your solid hardwood can be refinished!

 

While hardwood flooring isn’t always right for every space, there are currently options available now that can be installed anywhere in your home. Different hardwood species, finishes, and constructions are designed to fit all kinds of budgets, lifestyles, and decorative tastes. You can choose between prefinished hardwood planks and unfinished hardwood, as well as solid and engineered hardwoods, and more.

 

Many Species, Many Styles of Hardwood Flooring

Like all home décor options, hardwood flooring follows popular trends that complement the distinctive styles of different decades. Today’s popular hardwood styles include clean light wood floors as well as rustic dark wood options. Unique styles of hardwood are characterized by features like:

 

 

The hardwood species you choose defines your floor’s overall look. Our hardwood selection includes species such as maple, cherry, oak, walnut, and birch, among others.

 

 

Is Engineered Hardwood Made of Real Wood?

It sure is! Those shopping for flooring today will be presented with two types of hardwood flooring: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. While from the surface these two types of hardwood look the same, they are designed very differently.

 

What Can I Expect to Pay For Hardwood Flooring?

Hardwood flooring is an investment and can be one of the more expensive flooring options out there. But that investment pays off! Hardwood can last the life of your home, and it improves your property’s resale value. We also have various hardwood sales throughout the year! Be sure to follow us on Facebook or check our homepage every now and then for the latest details.

 

Which Size Plank Do I Need?

You can choose anything from extra narrow planks to extra wide. Because wide planks cover more of an area than older hardwood, you end up with half of the fasteners in cases, which can cause the floor to move and be less stable. We use a glue assist method to help the fasteners hold the floor in a more stable position and minimize squeaking.

 

Don’t DIY: Why You Need Professional Flooring Installation

If installed incorrectly, your hardwood flooring won’t wear properly, and won’t look its best. In addition, any resulting damages might not be covered under your manufacturer’s warranty. This is clearly a case where it pays to call our pros.

 

With years of experience, our in-house installers have all the tools and skills needed to complete your project correctly, efficiently, and flawlessly. In fact, we’re so confident in our skills that we’ll back up every installation with a competitive warranty. Call us to schedule a time for us to come to your house for a FREE onsite project estimate.

 

What Should I Know Before Installation Day?

Installing hardwood flooring is only the beginning. Once your flooring is in perfect place, it’s essential to maintain your homes temperature and humidity throughout the seasons. Protect your new investment by using proper cleaners, furniture leg protectors, mats to minimize scratching. Despite these efforts your hardwood floor WILL scratch at some point- but that adds to its charm!
