How To Install Wood Floor Surfacing
The proper method used to install wood floor surfaces has been honed and perfected by installation professionals to ensure smooth, even floors which will last for years and years. Installation techniques vary according to the preference of the installer, desired look and the type of wood flooring material being used. Although utilizing the service of a professional to install wood floor slats is the best way to ensure proper installation; some homeowners have opted to install their hardwood floors themselves. This option saves money on installation and only requires the purchase of the flooring surface as well as any other materials needed to complete the job.
If choosing to install wood floor surfaces as a do-it-yourself project, researching different techniques and the seeking the advice of professionals will allow you to glean knowledge and tips to help you complete the job properly. Home improvement warehouse stores often offer classes and seminars on how to install wood floor slats, commonly free of cost. If unable to attend one of these classes, the sales associates in the flooring section of warehouse stores should be able to offer guidance on the materials needed, installation techniques and additional resources through which more information can be obtained.
There are a few guidelines which will help to ensure optimal appearance and longevity if followed during the install wood floor process. First, make sure the surface on which you would like to install wood floor is level. Then, beginning installation at the longest, uninterrupted wall, ( meaning the wall with the least doors, windows or closets) begin nailing the slats carefully to avoid damage to the wood, stopping every 3 or 4 slats to again check for level flooring.
The install wood floor process is a relatively easy process when equipped with the proper materials and the knowledge to complete the job.
