Ava Richmond. Hardwood Flooring. March 11th , 2018.
Solid hardwood floors come either unfinished or pre-finished. This type of wood flooring is solid all the way from top to bottom. Unfinished hardwoods are a bit inexpensive to purchase and it requires immediate sanding, optional staining, and sealing after installation, which will require you at least 48 hours for the sealant to dry. With unfinished hardwood, the advantage is you can stain it and seal it to your liking, however, with pre-finished hardwoods, the advantage is easier to install and less down time. Pre-finished hardwoods are factory-completed product, which means there is no on-site sanding and finishing.
All of the furniture and obstacles that can be removed from the room should be removed while you install your hardwood floor panels. This is true even if it requires manual dismantling and reassembly. For those fixtures build into the floor of the room, you'll just have to panel around them. It's not the easiest way to go, but you have to do what you have to do to get your hardwood floor installed. If you have door sills, an old hardwood floor, baseboards, or carpet, remove them before you begin as well.
Electric Drill and 3/32" Drill Bit - Use this to drill your pilot holes, which should be slightly smaller in length and circumference than your nails. This will prevent your flooring panels from cracking when you put the nails in them.
If you think that hardwood floors are for sophisticated homes, think again. Hardwood floors are creatively designed to blueprint contemporary-styled houses. With so many types of woods like oak, cherry, maple and walnut, and different options to style the wood from staining to sanding, there is always something fit for your style.
