Factors to Consider

Before Buying Your New Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood Flooring InstallationAre you looking for an easy way to increase the value of your home and update the appearance of your interiors? Hardwood flooring can give your Etobicoke home the update you need. Solid or engineered hardwood floors are your best option for durable, high quality, and beautiful flooring. Like any home renovation project, you should take the time to do a bit of research and find out which options are best suited to your lifestyle, budget and tastes. Your floors will have a big impact on your space and can change everything from paint colours to cleaning habits.

Considerations for Your New Hardwood Flooring

If re-sale value is your top priority, or at least a strong consideration for the flooring update to your Caledon home, you should choose wisely. Here are some factors you need to consider when buying your hardwood flooring:

  • Wood Type: The type of tree the wood comes from will determine the colour, grain and appearance of the flooring. The cost of different wood types varies greatly, so choosing based on your budget is a good way to eliminate some options. Different wood also has different characteristics, so if low-maintenance cleaning and long-term care are important to you, research the requirements for each type of wood.
  • Installation: Installing hardwood flooring is a fairly straightforward project, but there are a lot of ways it can go wrong. Floors that are improperly installed can lead to issues in the future, such as buckling, warping or other problems. Don’t waste money on great materials and time on an amateur installation, only to have an expert come in to repair or re-do the work. Contact Robar Flooring for expert advice, a huge selection, and to get hardwood flooring installation you can rely on. Our professionals have years of experience and are dedicated to quality craftsmanship and beautiful flooring.
  • Pre-Finishing: Have floors that are looking a bit dull or worn? If your hardwood floors need a facelift, pre-finished hardwood can be screened and recoated after installation. This will rejuvenate the look of your floors and bring out their natural beauty.
  • Humidity: The climate of your home will impact your wood flooring. Wood expands and contracts when there are changes in the moisture levels or temperature of your home. These changes don’t happen evenly, and can lead to warping, damage and uneven or unsightly flooring over time. If your climate is dry, use a humidifier. If you live in a humid climate, ensure that your home is properly insulated.

All of the above are either nailed or glued down on top of existing sub-floor. In condominiums or commercial properties where sub-floor consists of concrete, plywood is applied on top of the slab in order to allow for nailing of the floor. All glued down floors can be directly applied on top of the concrete.
