Why Choose Hardwood Versus Laminate Flooring When Renewing Your Floors? Part II

Hardwood Floor Will Last Forever
There are hardwood floors that have truly stood the test of time by lasting for more than one hundred years. The cheap imitation stuff will never be able to do that.

With true hardwood floors, you will find that cleaning is a lot easier and that they are hypoallergenic. This means that those who have certain allergies in the house will not suffer so much. And since the legit hardwood floors are so much easier to keep up with when it comes to cleaning, you will find that they are going to look a lot better than the laminate flooring would.

7 Things That Hardwood Flooring Installers Should Do To Guarantee A Proper Installation – Part II

When you are considering points for hiring your next hardwood flooring contractor, you will have a lot of questions on your mind, particularly since flooring installation is such an investment. Your floors are one of the most important areas of your home. You need to make sure that the floor is secure, and that it looks pleasing to the eye. Here are some of the points to consider when you are working with a home flooring contractor.

1 – How Much Time
How much time will the flooring installation project take to complete? You need to make sure that your installer can get the job done, and quickly as well. Since there is no way that you can avoid walking on the floor, this is one household project that can’t be put off. This is both for the attractiveness of the home, and also for the safety of the home inhabitants.

2 – Taking Accurate Measurements
Your flooring contractor should be able to take accurate flooring installation measurements of the floor. This should seem obvious, but some installers that might want to cut corners might be tempted to “eyeball it”. They might try to convince you that they can get the right measurements, just by taking at look at your floor, because they’ve been at it for so long. Don’t fall for this.

3 – Double Checking The Measurements During The Job
A true professional will take measurements, each and every time. They should be double checking the measurements even during the job, to make sure there are no changes in the subflooring, or in the baseboards. All of this prevents against buckling and warping in the floor.

4 – The Best Prices For The JobNext, a great flooring installation professional should be able to give you the best prices for the job, because they have established relationships with dealers that offer them the most cost efficient materials for the money. An experienced installer knows where to get the best quality products for the best price. They should be able to pass on these deals to their customers as well.

5 – Identify Loose Spots In The Subflooring
Your professional floor installation contractor should be able to identify loose spots in the subflooring. They will also take the time to address this issue. Someone who provides sub-par work will simply slap planks of wood over loose subflooring, and hope that you never know the difference.

6 – A Professionally Licensed Installer
It should go without saying, but you shouldn’t cut corners when it comes to the person that you hire for your flooring installation. To this end, make sure that your floor installer has all of their proper licensing. This isn’t a job for your buddy down the street, or for your dear second cousin, twice removed. If you don’t use a professionally licensed installer, then you will have no recourse in court, if anything goes wrong. You could also invalidate any standing warranties on the home.

7 – Should Know How To Install All Kinds Of Floors
Your floor installation professional should not only know how to install hardwood flooring, but they should also know how to install laminate floors as well. Finally, your floor installer should always be able to offer you the best materials, at the best prices, so that you will be able to give them repeat business.

Preparing For A Hardwood Floor Estimate – Part I

When considering the installation of hardwood floors in your home, cottage, or condo, there are three key areas of concern that should be considered before contacting a hardwood flooring expert for additional information.

1. Size (square footage) of the area to be covered
2. Cost per square foot of the selected materials for installation
3. Cost for the removal of any existing hardwood flooring, tile, or carpeting

Luciano Soares and Mr. Lazaro Mesa

Before Have Someone To Give An Estimate
In preparation of calling a hardwood flooring expert in for an estimate, it best to do a little homework first. Measuring the area and performing a rough calculation of the total square footage that you wish to have covered is the very first step to take.

Many decisions will be made based on this calculation – the cost of materials, the cost of installation, the cost of removal of any pre-existing floor covering that must be detached prior to starting the job, and lastly the amount of time
the contractor will have to budget to complete the job.

It is also critical that you begin to make sure that your desires meet your financial budget as well.

The next step in the process is to begin to review the wide variety of different hardwood flooring options and select perhaps a couple of different patterns and materials that you really like.

Cost X Materials
As the cost of installation can also be affected by the materials selected, be sure that you gain an understanding of this while picking out the materials. Home improvement centers, firms specializing in hardwood floor installation, and the internet are great resources for doing this type of preliminary shopping.

When Contact The Installers To Get Some Quotes?
Once you have determined the total square footage in question and a couple of different patterns for materials that strike your fancy, you are ready to contact installers to start getting some quotes.
