Of all of the flooring options available to the modern homeowner, hardwood flooring stands out as one of the most beautiful, versatile, and durable options. True hardwood flooring can be refinished by a hardwood floor refinishing service many times over the course of its lifespan. Many hardwood floors last for decades, and some have even been known to last for over 100 years.
Taking care of your hardwood flooring is essential of course, but so is installing it correctly. If you want to install hardwood flooring that a hardwood floor refinishing service can help you maintain, you’ll need to do the job right.
First, make sure you purchase high-quality hardwood flooring for the project. Then, you need to prepare your space. Rip out the old flooring materials, vacuum up any dust and debris from the area, and make sure the subfloor is level. Many modern hardwood flooring options are made to slot together to make installation easy.
If you’re installing your new flooring against old flooring, you’ll want to install it perpendicular to the old flooring. This allows you to get the installation tight against the old flooring.
