One of the hottest new trends is to have hardwood floors installed in your home. They are a great option if you want to have a modern and easy to care for flooring option. The colors, textures, size and installation processes that you can choose from are quite a variety. You can choose to have a dark sophisticated wood floor or a sleek new trendy white stained hardwood floor. Whatever you choose make sure you are ready to care for them properly. You still need to clean up spills right away and use the right products and tools to clean the floors as well. This will ensure that they last and don’t look damaged. When they start to look worn out you can have them refinished and looking back to new again. Hardwood floor installation is a process that needs to be done by a professional to ensure you are happy with the outcome.
Mike’s Custom Flooring Lists Steps Taken When Hardwood Floors Are Installed
Choose Hardwood Plank Material, Color, Size & Finish: One of the first steps that you take when having new hardwood floors installed is to choose what you want. There are options on material, size, shape, color and finish that you need to narrow down. You can use the help of a professional that has the expertise in what would go best in your home. You also need to decide what rooms you are having the hardwood installed and where you want to keep your nice lush carpeting. Bedrooms are ideal for carpet while a living and dining room may be best with hardwood. After you have made your decision on the floors you are ready for installation.
Preparing to Install Hardwood Floors: The next step once you have chosen a flooring and the rooms that you are having it installed in, you need to prepare the rooms. The rooms will first need to have all the furniture moved out of the way and in a room to store them during the installation. Then the old flooring will need to be removed and trashed. This might be old carpeting, tile or stone floors that you want to replace. This can be a long a messy job and if it is not done right it can leave a mess and damage the subfloor. The removing of the old floor needs to also include if there is glue or tack strips used as well. Any repairs to the subfloor are also done so that the new hardwood can be installed.
Installing Hardwood Floors: The next step is to have the actual hardwood floor installed. The planks need to be fitted to the room perfectly and how they are installed can vary. There are several installation options which your installation technician will go over with you. There are some factors that will help determine the correct process. Once the room has the floors installed you can replace your furniture and belongings to start enjoying the room again.
