Our Edmonton Flooring Consultants will show you the characteristics to consider when buying Hardwood Flooring: Wood Species, Grade, Board Widths & Lengths, Colour, Finish, and Stability.
Hardwood is a fantastic flooring option for almost any room in your home. The trick is to install the type of hardwood with the right construction, texture, and finish for the room you want it in.
You now have more reasons than ever to install beautiful hardwood floors in one of the many varieties of woods and stains. Not only can it last as long as your home; it will also increase its value!
Remember, wood is an organic material that naturally wants to absorb moisture, and there may be additional considerations for hardwood installation in kitchens, bathrooms, or basements. Our Flooring Consultants are happy to help you with your selection process.
If you’re not confident installing a hardwood floor, we can do it for you!
Ensure that your subfloor is ready for the new flooring (any repairs have been done)
Take all furnishings out of the room(s)
Take off the baseboards and doors
Clean your old flooring to minimize airborne dust and particles
Also, try to be around when the installers are scheduled to come, so you can help them set up.
After installation, you may want to give your new floor a vacuum and a light Swiffer. After that, you can start enjoying your hardwood flooring!
There used to only be a couple of options for hardwood flooring. Things have changed!
At Flooring Superstores, we carry solid wood & engineered hardwood in a wealth of widths, species, grades, colours, and finishes. Engineered hardwoods are thinner and more versatile. They’re made up of several layers that are more resistant to moisture and humidity changes.
Care and maintenance of your hardwood floor depends on how your floors are finished. Each manufacturer provides brochures and online guides that are specific to its brand and finish.
Generally daily cleaning only requires a dry sweep or vacuum. Some people prefer to use a hardwood-specific vacuum that has the same design and power as a regular vacuum, but weighs much less and has control settings and features for cleaning wood.
Warranties for hardwood promise that their products won’t stain from normal foods and drink, and that their top/wear layer will not wear through. They also warrant that their products will not fade quickly in normal household lighting or sunlight due to their high UV resistance.
Ask a Flooring Consultant for information on warranties.
