Installing new hardwood flooring during a home renovation is a great idea. The biggest advantage of hardwood over carpet is its longevity. In addition to lasting longer than carpet, hardwood can outlast many other elements of your home when installed correctly.
A properly installed floor will maximize its shelf life. There are a number of risks involved with installing hardwood floors on your own. Having your hardwood floors installed by a professional has some benefits:
Skill and Experience
By hiring a professional, you can rest assured that the job will be done correctly the first time. Installers at Walk on Wood have extensive experience installing hardwood floors in various home layouts. We have encountered a variety of unique situations requiring creative solutions.
The smallest mistakes, such as placing planks too far apart or too close together, can cause major problems in the future. We have worked with hardwood floors for many years, and we understand the process of expansion and contraction. We can ensure a proper installation so you do not have any problems in the future.
Correct hardwood floor installation begins with proper subfloor preparation. Hardwood installers will echo this sentiment: “Hardwood flooring installation is only as good as the subfloor.”
If the subfloor is not properly prepared, individual planks may cup or boards may gap. Installing hardwood requires a clean, flat, and dry subfloor. Before laying hardwood planks, an experienced installation company will ensure that the subfloor is sound and within specs.
Installing new floors in your home can be very inconvenient. It’s hard to go about your daily business without walking on your floors. If you opt to install new floors on your own, you’ll need a detailed, step-by-step plan before you begin if you wish to minimize inconvenience.
You could spend weeks performing the installation yourself. On the other hand, a professional installer can dramatically reduce the installation time. A team of professional installers is on hand at Walk on Wood to complete the project according to your schedule.
It’s inevitable that you’ll learn a lot if you decide to take on a DIY floor installation project, but mistakes can cost you a lot of money. In the event that you miss an important step or damage planks during the installation process, you have no recourse. As a result of being unable to sell homes, we’ve removed many DYI floors. The money you invested is lost.
A professional installer, such as Walk on Wood, will allow you to enjoy a greater sense of peace of mind. If you’re not satisfied with our work, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re ultimately satisfied.
Once you have chosen the type of hardwood you would like to install in your home, it’s time to schedule the best time for a professional team to install it. Don’t hesitate to contact the flooring experts at Walk on Wood!
