How is Hardwood Installed?

Since hardwood requires such specific installation knowledge, we recommend going with professionals to have your floors installed in your home. The first steps we take when installing your new hardwood floors is removing the old flooring and prepping your subfloors. We make sure they are dry and free of imperfections. It is important to have a dry subfloor because hardwood naturally absorbs any moisture and can lead to damage.

After your subfloor is prepped and your hardwood has been acclimated to your room, we’ll install the planks. There are a few different methods of installation depending on which hardwood product you choose. Engineered hardwood can be nailed or glued down, or you can choose a floating floor installation. For solid hardwood, you can only have the planks glued or nailed down.

Where can Hardwood be Installed?

Although hardwood is a highly sought after flooring option, it isn’t the best for all spaces. Depending on which type of hardwood you choose plays a role in where you can install them. Take a look at the differences between solid and engineered hardwood options and where they are best suited for.

Hardwood in Living Rooms

Installing hardwood in your living room can add value to your home. Hardwood is stylish and durable. Its character and detailed looks cannot be replicated by any other flooring. Engineered hardwood is a great option for living rooms because it is dimensionally stable and can handle more foot traffic as well as children and pets.

Hardwood in Bedrooms

Hardwood makes your bedroom feel more open and luxurious. It can handle the moderate level of traffic in this space as well. Hardwood is an allergy friendly option and will not trap dust or dirt, making it super simple to clean.
