Engineered Hardwood Floors
This type of flooring is gorgeous in nature and design. It was created to alleviate the shrinking and expanding that sometimes happens with traditional flooring when exposed to continual moisture. Engineered wood flooring is made of genuine hardwood, but the sections are compressed together by laying sections in opposing fashion to create the planks. These planks provide a more durable hardwood flooring option that counteract the growing or shrinking caused by humidity and are available in a wide array of colors and designs.
Beautiful Hardwood Flooring for Minnesota Home and Business Owners
There are many challenging, but very feasible do-it-yourself home improvement projects. Hardwood flooring installation, however, would not be one of them. Many people underestimate the tremendous challenge of installing a wood floor. This is one home improvement project best left for our Minneapolis – St. Paul professionals.
Consumers especially adept at home improvement projects might believe that they can easily install wood floors. After all, how difficult could it be to put down some wood planks and throw on some stain? The answer is simple. It is pretty difficult!
Our installers discuss many options with our Minneapolis – St. Paul clients. Along with traditional and engineered floors, we will help you understand the proper width and durability. Certain wood types will absorb stains better than others and that impacts its color outcome. That is why selecting the style is one of the most important decisions you can make for your home.
Our staff understands flooring, knows the best vendors and we source our materials carefully. We take into account where it originates, how it was warehoused and consider its long-term strength. Our professionals know which vendors provide the best and most reliable products and brands. If the consumer is especially eco-conscious, this is even more important.
The importance of the pre-installation stage is often overlooked by inexperienced professionals. Our Minneapolis – St. Paul staff knows what steps must be taken at the project site prior to and accurately assess the quantity of wood needed for the project. 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 also are experts at repairing, sanding, staining, sealing, and finishing the floor. We know how different woods react and how to handle those woods, particularly post-installation. We know exactly what needs to be done in order to obtain a perfectly finished and professional-looking product and a happy client.
