An Introduction to Hardwood Floors
There's good news about hardwood floors. Because of advanced construction and finish technologies, they are now more stable than they were in the past. There are three types of hardwood floors: engineered, longstrip, and solid. Within these basic types, there are many variations, so it is worth getting information about many products before determining which one is right for you.
When determining the style and material for your flooring, it is important to consider the areas to be floored, size of the areas in square feet, type of subfloor, your preference for pre-finished or unfinished flooring and stain color. You must also decide whether you will install the floor yourself or hire a professional.
Flooring installation methods, which include floating, nail-down, glue-down and staple-down, are not to be tested by an amateur. Of these methods, glue-down flooring would be comparatively easy for a newcomer to install. Inexperienced persons should not try nail-down installation on their own as it requires special skills and lots of time.
Comparing prices and products at different supplier stores and home centers before finalizing the flooring will help you to find the best deal. If you are confused or uncertain about the product, consult a shop-keeper or installer. While placing an order for material, do not forget to order installation material such as adhesives, nails, tools and so on.
