What Should I Know Before Purchasing Hardwood Flooring

Deciding on the hardwood flooring that best fits your needs comes with answering a few questions. Some of those questions are where you plan on installing it, how are you planning and to take care of the floor, and who will be living in the home.

Another big factor is moisture, which can have long-lasting effects on your flooring. Knowing how to properly clean and maintain your floors will affect how long they last. There are certain chemicals that will ruin and destroy the coating on the wood. Make sure while looking through the designs, ask your designated design associate on how to clean your favorite designs.

Are you going to be living with pets or children? Are you installing the hardwood flooring where there will be a lot of foot traffic? These are the questions that need to be considered when looking at options to pick your final design.

Installing Your Floors

Installing hardwood flooring is dependent on a few items: if the wood is prefinished, the plank types, subflooring, installation, timeframe, and also the budget.

  • Floating/Click Lock – This will be the fastest and most convenient method of installation. Using this method involves laying down all the planks on the subflooring and connecting them with glue or by “clicking” them together in place.
  • Nail Down/Staple Down – This method is primarily used on solid wood with a wooden subfloor. Cleat nails or staples are driven down to attach the planks to the subfloor.
  • Glue Down – This method can take longer and be expensive due to the fact that adhesives can be costly, and it takes time to apply them. The subfloor must be fully cured and dry wood or concrete. While using the glue method is not the most budget-friendly, this method will reduce sounds between the floor in your home!
