Wood Floor Services
offers new hardwood floor
and stair installations
to any homeowner or small commercial client. We provide nail down or floating floor installations
as well as stair treads and simple handrail installations
A floating floor
is an engineered floor that either clicks or glues together and can be applied over concrete or in situations where budgets are tight. There are many choices out there but the only ones we use are designed to replicate an actual hardwood floor.
A glue down floor
is an engineered or solid hardwood product that is glued directly to a sub-floor or a substrate. If you choose a solid hardwood floor that is five inches or wider, that product needs to be glued as well as nailed. This process can be very costly and time consuming, and there are certain limitations where this is applicable.
The most common wood floor installation is a nail down application
over a wooden subfloor. We always use the highest grade vapor and moisture barrier on this application to seal the floor from below, allowing us to properly sand and finish the product from above.
What is typically included in any of these services is delivery of the material for acclimation, jobsite preparation (dust containment where necessary) and the actual install of the chosen material. An initial site visit for an installation typically requires moisture readings and a relative humidity reading and testing of other services such as the electrical, HVAC, and the heating system. We use the best underlayment possible in any situation, because the floor is only as good as the surface below it! All floors are installed to industry standards and attention to detail is the way we treat every install!
