Hardwood Floor Installation Cost
Hardwood floors are renowned for their quality, timelessness, and beauty, making them a perfect choice for both residential and commercial applications. The cost of hardwood floor installation can vary. Still, it typically ranges from $3 to $12 per square foot, depending on the type of wood, location, labour costs, and subfloor preparation.
Our Wood Floor Installation & Fitting Process
The installation of wood flooring is a relatively straightforward process, but the expertise of a professional is invaluable for achieving the best results and ensuring your floor's longevity. Before installation, it's crucial to store the floorboards in their original, unopened packaging in the room where they will be installed for a minimum of 3 to 4 days, preferably one week. This acclimatization period allows the boards to adjust to the room's humidity, preventing deformation after installation.
Wood floors can be installed and fitted using three primary methods
This method is commonly used for laminated wood floors and is ideal for heated wood floors. It involves applying polyurethane glue to ensure a secure installation.
While traditional, it's becoming less common. It's essential to check the floor's flatness, install joists, and nail solid wood floor planks at an angle, which often requires professional expertise.
Suitable for any flooring, this method involves installing insulation and wooden floor planks over the existing floor.
Wood Flooring Installation Aftercare
Maintaining your wood floor is crucial for its longevity. Follow the manufacturer's instructions, use water sparingly, and maintain a relative humidity in the room between 45% and 60%. Store any remaining floorboards in sealed packaging, flat and at the same temperature and humidity as the installation room. After allowing time for acclimatisation, you can apply finishing touches such as sanding, waxing, oiling, staining, or glazing.
Please note that some wood species, like beech, may require larger joints in dry winter conditions due to greater shrinkage.
