Professional Hardwood floor installation is so much more than just throwing planks down or nailing some engineered wood flooring in place. Many factors must be carefully thought out well in advance, prior to the installation. Sadly, most people make a huge mistake here that costs thousands of dollars and they lose way more than they thought they would save by hiring a friend, family member, or even a painter to do their hardwood floors.
The first step in any professional hardwood floor installation is to find what product is best for your particular project. Hardwood flooring is either solid wood or engineered wood flooring. Engineered wood can come two ways, prefinished hardwood flooring or unfinished hardwood flooring. Be careful in your purchasing of supplies, that you are specific and actually get what you need for the job. Before you begin your hardwood installation, consider your foundation. Is it raised with plywood? Is it solid concrete? This alone, limits the choices of wood dramatically if you don’t want to have buckled floors in a couple of months.
