OUR WORK PROCESS

Wood Floor Installation NYC

Investing in hardwood floors ensures long-term durability with proper installation and maintenance. Various methods exist for installing engineered wood strips, solid wood strips, and parquet. Prioritizing moisture testing is crucial across all installation methods to guarantee a successful outcome. Though installation can be meticulous, we take pride in leaving your home as stunning as we found it.

Nail Down/Staple Installation

This method involves securing solid or engineered wood strips to the subfloor using nails or staples. It typically employs random-length strips, ensuring precise placement and tension by arranging a few strips before fastening.

Glue Down Installation

Here, engineered wood strips or parquet are glued directly to the subfloor, often concrete. Managing moisture becomes paramount, and considering allergies or scent sensitivities is essential. We use an acrylic-based glue, milder compared to other options. The flooring can be walked on the following day, and furniture can be moved in.

Floating Installation

With this approach, tongue-and-groove planks are glued together, allowing the floor to float atop a cushioned foam padding. Some flooring with locking systems doesn't require glue. It suits both laminate and engineered wood, with pre-finished flooring being a common feature. Not all engineered surfaces support floating installation.
This method accommodates subfloors of varying quality and is ideal for multiple layers of flooring without complete removal. The thickness of the wear layer determines refinishing capabilities. Typically, floating floors may feel hollow underneath due to their construction. Remember, these floors expand and contract as a unit, necessitating sufficient expansion space.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hardwood Flooring Installation Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are you contemplating the wood installation of your floors but need more information? Here are some commonly asked questions about hardwood flooring.
When considering hardwood flooring, two primary costs come into play: the initial installation cost and the maintenance costs over time. Installation costs vary based on the flooring type and the installer. Maintenance includes refinishing, typically costing per square foot. Solid hardwood flooring has a major impact on home value and is incredibly durable, even with the initial cost.
Hardwood flooring, being both durable and aesthetically pleasing, can enhance any room where social gatherings occur. However, it's advisable to avoid installing solid wood flooring in areas prone to moisture, such as kitchens and bathrooms. Dry basements can be suitable candidates for various hardwood flooring styles.
Hardwood floors offer durability, timeless beauty, and increased home value. These functionally designed floors can be re-stained and refinished to match any interior design preference, allowing you to create your dream floor.
Laminate flooring differs significantly from hardwood flooring. It consists of a plastic top layer over compressed wood, mimicking the appearance of hardwood at a lower cost. Laminate is a suitable alternative for high-moisture, high-traffic areas where hardwood might be susceptible to damage over time.
While hardwood floors are generally not recommended for pet owners due to potential damage from claws, spills, and accidents, engineered flooring tends to withstand pet traffic better. Laminate flooring is also a great alternative for areas with heavy foot traffic or pet activity.

Why Choosing the Right Installation Team Matters as Much as the Wood Itself?

The first step towards having a beautiful hardwood floor is choosing the right wood. The important role played by the installation procedure comes next. No matter how great the wood is, its real beauty won't show until the installation and construction are of an exceptionally high quality. Regrettably, numerous hardwood contractors provide discounted installations, aware that they may hastily complete the job with unqualified workers. Leave the work to the experts to guarantee a great result right away. Our installation team at Universal Flooring Inc. has years of experience, so we can guarantee a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing installation.
