Considered by many to be the ultimate home indulgence, hardwood flooring adds lasting value. Diverse, distinct, and eternally luxurious, there’s nothing quite like a luxe hardwood floor. If properly installed, your hardwood floor will grace your home for generations.
At Brent’s Carpet One Floor & Home of Newhall, CA, we’re proud to be your local destination for hardwood flooring and related services. As you prepare for your hardwood installation, it’s crucial to be adequately prepared to ensure the process goes off without any hitches. Here’s a bit of advice on how to move forward.
Hardwood flooring needs to be handled with care. Before making any final decisions, be sure to read manufacturers’ recommendations carefully. One general rule of thumb: solid hardwood should never be installed below grade. Engineered hardwood offers more flexibility. Neither variety of hardwood should be used in a bathroom or kitchen.
Long before your installation crew arrives, it’s essential to start preparing for your hardwood installation. This entails complete removal of any bits of old flooring, debris, or adhesives. A clean and level subfloor is the ideal blank canvas for your new hardwood: remember, an unstable foundation will ultimately lead to a floor that wears out before its time. Many types of hardwood flooring require a professional installation as a warranty coverage condition, so it’s important to plan accordingly.
