Hardwood Flooring Installation in Monterey County, CA
If you’re looking to add value and warmth to your home, or maybe you’re just tired of your floor and want a new one, hardwood is the best way to go. Hardwood can last for many years, and it also feels good to walk on.
By choosing hardwood flooring installation from Morrison’s, you are choosing to make an investment in your home. Before you start the process with your new floor installation, there’s a few choices you’ll need to make. Starting with the style of wood.
Solid or Engineered Wood
-Solid Wood – Each plank is made from a single piece of wood. It also comes in many different sizes, all finished and sanded for your home.
-Engineered Wood – Engineered wood is already sized and stained, so it’s ready to install upon arrival.
After you’ve chosen your wood, the installation process begins. We start out by removing the existing flooring. Then, we check the subfloor for any squeaks or places that need to be re-nailed. We make every effort to ensure the your floor is squeak-free before installation.
After this, we begin to place the new wood flooring. It takes a trained professional to know where to start with each individual piece of wood. This is done through four different methods:
- → Nail Down – we use 2′ nails to hold the hardwood in place, typically with 3/4″ wood.
- → Staple Down – done by using 1.5-2″ staples to attach the new wood to the subfloor underneath.
- → Glue – This is usually only done with engineered wood. We will make sure we use the correct adhesive for your particular wood type.
- → Floating Method – Through this method, a thin pad is placed between the new wood and the subfloor underneath. Each piece of wood is then glued together and laid down on the pad. This way, none of the wood is attached to the subfloor, and this is ideal for noise reduction.
