Hardwood Floor Installation Tips
You’ll want to check for flatness. To make sure that you have a beautiful and flat complexion from your wood floor finished surface take the time to correct any uneven areas, whether they’re low or high, before starting your hardwood floor installation.
To keep from having a noisy, squeaky floor once your hardwood is installed, make sure to tighten down and secure your subfloor before that first hardwood board is put in place. And make sure there is no moisture anywhere. This is one of the top problems for hardwood floor installations. Take special care to take a walk around and inspect your doors, windows, plumbing and heating systems for any possible leaks.
When you’re ready to lay the hardwood, roll out the underlayment for your hardwood floor and then lay the floor pieces parallel with the longest wall in the room. You’ll want to begin on the left side and work right, with the small tongue side facing the wall. Don’t forget to use spacers between boards and walls to allow for expansion.

Hardwood Floor Durability
When you are looking for a floor that is not only attractive, but notoriously durable, hardwood is your best choice. It is a common misconception that hardwood has to be high-maintenance. Like with any floor, you will have a bit of maintenance but choosing the right type of wood for your lifestyle is key. Some types of wood are more prone to scratches or dents compared to others. D&R Floors and Home Solutions Inc. can help match you with the perfect hardwood floor that can withstand anything you throw at it and last for years to come. Hardwood Flooring Types
Hardwood Flooring Types
Generally, there are three main types of hardwood flooring: solid wood, engineered wood, and bamboo. Depending on your budget, aesthetic goals, and required durability, you may choose one over the other. Solid wood is a timeless choice that only gets better with age. It does cost more upfront, but many homeowners think of solid hardwood as an investment that improves the value of your home. Engineered wood has improved significantly in the last decade or so. Most times, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between solid wood and engineered. Bamboo is a lower-cost and durable alternative to solid wood floors.
Floating Hardwood Floor Installation
One of the quickest ways to get new flooring in place is to install a floating hardwood floor. Unlike traditional solid-wood strips, a floating floor isn’t nailed down. These hardwood planks are either glued or snapped together. The planks go into place quickly, over a variety of materials, concrete, plywood, sheet vinyl, even ceramic tile.
Put down an underlayment, the foam padding that goes under a floating hardwood floor. Start in a corner and put down the first plank, allowing about 1/4 inch space from the wall. Take the next plank and snap it to the end of the first one. Continue this way until you reach the other side of the room.trim the last plank, if necessary.
Cut the first plank of the second row so that it is a different length than the first plank you put down and continue varying the length of the first plank in each row so that when the room is finished, the planks are not sitting side by side, but are in a random pattern. Start every fourth or fifth row with a full-size plank.

Can we install hardwood flooring if we have a dog or other indoor pets?
There is a hardwood flooring option for every family. Many customers worry about pets scratching their hardwood floors and damaging their floors. Your flooring material should fit your lifestyle, not the other way around. To minimize any possible damage to your hardwood flooring, keep your pet’s nails trimmed regularly. With simple maintenance of both your pets and your floors, you can keep a beautiful hardwood floor in pristine condition.

What is the most durable hardwood floor available?
If you are looking for the most durable wood flooring available, you will want to seek those that are high on the hardness scale. Woods like Brazillian Redwood and high-quality bamboo flooring are your best bet. Stay away from soft woods like Pine that will ding and scratch more easily. An experienced flooring expert can assist you in choosing the most durable hardwood floor that matches your home and fits your budget. If you have a question, contact us at D&R Floors and Home Solutions Inc. today!
Is it safe to use hardwood flooring in a kitchen?
Unlike more common material such as ceramic or porcelain tile, solid hardwood should not be installed just anywhere in a house. A moist environment, such as a bathroom, is the worst spot to install hardwood floor. It could work in a kitchen, which is a semi-moist environment. If you think your kitchen tends to be dry, you can opt for either site-finished hardwood or engineered hardwood. Pre-finished flooring does not usually work in the kitchen.
The ply core of engineered hardwood best resists water. Similarly, a site-finished hardwood floor includes a top layer that prevents moisture and water from ruining the material. You’ll want to ask your flooring specialist about on-site finishing for your kitchen floor.
