Getting to know hardwood

 
It’s important to know some facts before preparing for your hardwood flooring installation. The first is, of course, make sure you use a professional service for that installation. Your flooring specialist can discuss all the details, but you will actually save a lot of money this way. Unless a homeowner has been in flooring installation before, and has all the necessary tools and experience, there’s no reason to try a DIY install.

Another important factor in this material is that it cannot be installed in basements or other rooms that are situated below grade. It reacts to moisture, humidity, and changes in temperature, and will leave you searching for replacement flooring far earlier than you ever thought you would have to. For spaces where solid wood won’t work, be sure to consider engineered flooring. It’s still real hardwood flooring, layered between a sturdy backing material and a protective wear layer, but it does not react in the same way the solid version does. You can even have it refinished a time or two before replacing it.

Be sure to talk with your flooring professional about proper species choice as well. Rated from very soft to very hard, you’ll need one that fits your own particular activity level in your home. This is one way your floors can reach their intended life span.
