Hire a pro to do your floor hardwood installation, you’ll be happy with the results:
New hardwood flooring is a home improvement project that pays off big when it comes to increasing your home’s value, as well as the look and feel. Do-it-yourselfers may think they will have no problem installing a hardwood floor, but let’s be honest, it takes a certain skill level to do this job right.
There are lots of details that are important when doing your floor hardwood installation. Ahead of time it’s important to remember to bring the wood into the room it will be installed in, open the packaging, and let it acclimate to the room. This should take at least a week. When you do this, it allows the wood to stabilize so it doesn’t shrink or expand when you’re installing it.
You have to keep in mind that solid wood floors expand and contract with changes in humidity, so you need to leave a 1/2 inch gap around the perimeter of your floor. You’ll also have to nail the first row or two in place, because you can’t use the flooring nailer that close to the wall.
