Hardwood floor is the best ways to keep the home look elegant. It is important that one must think about the hardwood floor installation Los Angeles and how it can be done in a better way. Remember that your decision making can influence the longevity of the hardwood floor that you are choosing. Therefore, you must know certain basic things about the hardwood floor installations are mentioned over here in this article.

Consider the Area to Install

You must carefully review the product specifications and instructions prior to buying. Most hardwood products are not recommended for bathroom or laundry room installations (though, our Hydropel flooring is one exception). The reason is simple as water is the biggest enemy of the wood. If you plan to install in a basement or over a concrete slab or a radiant heating system, choose engineered hardwood instead of solid hardwood.

Identify the Installation Options

The installation methods can differ from product to product. Solid hardwood must be nailed, stapled or glued down. Engineered wood can often be floated, meaning the planks connect to each other instead of the subfloor. Floating hardwood installation is much more DIY-friendly. However, it is always a better decision to stay away from the DYI works as these are a little difficult to complete. 

Hire Professional

The time is really difficult outside. However, still, there are several shops and businesses being open who are working to provide you the best possible solution even in the mid of this crisis. If you plan to do it yourself, it’s probably fastest and easiest to choose an engineered flooring product that can be floated. Hardwood floor installation Los Angeles requires staples, nails or glue can be challenging even for experienced DIYers. If you decide to hire a professional, ask your flooring retailer to recommend a professional installer that they are associated with or someone who they have successfully referred to before.  

Keep the Supplies at One Space

If you are planning to do the work on own for time pass, still it is advisable to keep the supplies at one space. Once the instructions you read, thoroughly list out any extra tools and materials which you will need. While requirements vary from product to product, your list could include things like trims and moldings underlayment, nails, staples, glue, an air compressor, and/or miscellaneous tools.

Follow the Step by Step Instruction

You need to review your product instructions properly. The significance of all the steps may seem minor now, but if you overlooked could cause bigger problems later during the installation. For example, establishing your starting point and properly preparing doorways, walls, and subfloors.

Final Words

Therefore, in this article, you have seen how hardwood installation Los Angeles can be a tough task. However, following the proper instructions or asking for the help of the wood floor contractors will help to complete the work properly.
