These planks offer a more durable hardwood flooring option that reduce the growing or shrinking caused by humidity and are available in a wide variety of colors and designs.
Beautiful Hardwood Flooring for Chicago Home and Business Owners
There are many challenging, but very feasible DIY home improvement projects. Hardwood flooring installation doesn’t belong on that list. Many people underestimate the tremendous challenge of installing a wood floor. This is one home improvement project best left for our Chicago, IL professionals.
Consumers who are especially proficient at home improvement projects might believe that they can easily install wood floors. However, while it seems simple on the surface, it’s better to save time and call a professional.
Our installers discuss many options with our Chicago, IL customers. Along with traditional and engineered floors, we will help you understand the width and durability of the options we provide. Certain wood types will absorb stains better than others which impacts its color outcome. This is why selecting styles is an incredibly important option for your home.
We understand flooring, know the best vendors and carefully source our materials. We take into account where it originates, how it’s stored and are considerate its long-term strength. We know which vendors provide the best and most reliable products and brands. If you’re especially eco-conscious, we have the best options for you.
The importance of the pre-installation stage is often overlooked by inexperienced professionals. Our Chicago, IL staff knows what steps must be taken before the project and accurately assess the quantity of wood needed. We even check humidity/moisture levels of the wood once it arrives so that we know when it is ready to be installed.
The installation process is where years of experience and proper training are vital for success. Incorrectly installing a floor can have expensive and inconvenient consequences. Our technicians take numerous factors into account, including whether the floor is level, the direction to run the wood, the sub-flooring, and how the floor will transition between rooms. We also have an arsenal of specialized tools to ensure a quality installation.
Lastly, but just as importantly, our installers have tremendous experience at repairing, sanding, staining, sealing, and finishing the floor. We know how different woods react and how to handle those woods, particularly after the installation. We know exactly what needs to be done in order to obtain a perfectly finished and professional-looking product and an extremely happy customer.
