WHAT TO CONSIDER BEFORE CHOOSING YOUR FLOORING
There is a greater chance of water and moisture seeping into flooring below ground level, such as basements, which can damage the material and adhesive used in its installation. Instead of solid hardwood, choose an engineered hardwood or synthetic water-resistant flooring product.
Even in above-ground applications, a moisture barrier must be installed first when installing solid hardwood flooring directly to concrete. Plywood or oriented strand board (OSB) are suitable as subfloors for installing hardwood without a barrier. When these are installed over a concrete slab, proper moisture proofing is installed first.
The subfloor should be solid and level before installing solid hardwood. Engineered flooring that is installed by locking the pieces together can often be installed over slightly uneven subfloors using a “floating” floor method.
We offer several hardwood flooring options to fit varying needs for durability, maintenance and cost:
This solid wood floor plank is pre-finished with stain and sealer at the factory. It requires installation only.
This hardwood comes as a raw, solid plank requiring sanding and refinishing. It is custom-made for your home.
This hardwood floor comes as a finished product from the factory. The top layer is made of real wood, while the base is made of plywood layers.
Laminate flooring is a fused, multi-layer synthetic product. Its upper layer simulates genuine wood using a photographic applique over an inner core.
This floor comes as flexible sheets made of synthetic material similar to plastic, which is durable and water resistant. It is economical and comes in a wide range of designs.

HOW WE INSTALL YOUR FLOORING
The installation begins with a professional assessment of the job site and installation requirements to ensure that the finished job meets building code specifications as well as your expectations.
Although we do not perform major structural or subfloor repairs, we will perform minor leveling as necessary and seal surfaces to provide the proper foundation for hardwood floor installation. Our experts will also install any necessary moisture barriers.
The installation method itself will depend on the type of flooring you have chosen. Engineered floors are typically glued directly to concrete if the slab is level enough. Some solid hardwood products can also be directly glued, with proper moisture proofing, or nailed directly.
Once installed, solid hardwood and some engineered products will require sanding for a smooth, level and open surface. Once sanded, we apply any stain.
