Hardwood floors provide an elegance, beauty and warmth that other floor coverings fail in comparison. Hardwood floors require minimal maintenance and will last a lifetime with proper care. Since we use 100% real hardwoods, the floor can be sanded and refinished over time to bring them back to new.
During the installation process, the raw hardwood planks are nailed or glued down to the subfloor, creating a smooth and even surface. Then, the floors are sanded down to remove any imperfections or unevenness, revealing the natural beauty of the wood grain.
Once the sanding is complete, a finish is applied to protect the floors and enhance their appearance. This finish can be either oil-based or water-based, and can range in sheen from matte to glossy.
The best type of hardwood flooring for your home will depend on your individual preferences, lifestyle, and budget. Some popular options include oak, maple, hickory, and cherry.
Yes, it is possible to install hardwood flooring over concrete, but it requires additional preparation steps, such as laying down a vapor barrier and using a special adhesive.
The length of time it takes to install hardwood flooring depends on several factors, such as the size of the room, the complexity of the installation, and the type of hardwood being used. Generally, a small room can be completed in a day, while a larger room may take several days.
While it is possible to install hardwood flooring yourself, it is recommended to hire a professional for the best results. Professional installers have the experience, tools, and expertise needed to ensure a flawless installation.
Hardwood flooring can last for decades or even a century with proper care and maintenance. Some hardwood floors have been known to last for over 100 years.
To maintain your hardwood floors, you should sweep or vacuum regularly to remove dirt and debris, wipe up spills immediately, and use a hardwood floor cleaner to clean the floors periodically. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that can damage the finish of the floors. We prefer using Bona cleaner.
