The Importance of Hiring Experts to Perform Hardwood Floor Installation

Examples of floors requiring special care:
- Clients who choose an exotic wood must avoid placing area rugs over their newly installed floor for at least six months: Following this recommendation is essential to ensure that UV rays from the sun do not alter the tone and/or color of the wood.
- A hardwood floor installation expert knows how significant installing a smooth, dry sub floor beneath hardwood, raw hardwood, prefinished wood and laminate flooring is: A smooth, dry sub floor creates an ideal environment for the floor.

Hardwood Floor Installation in NC
After your hardwood flooring arrives, your hardwood floor installation date will be scheduled. On the day of your installation, our craftsmen will take measurements of the room, or rooms, that your new hardwood floor will be installed in. Once the measurements are taken and documented, the hardwood floor installation process can begin.
The Hardwood Giant Company’s hardwood floor experts will install, sand and then seal your new hardwood floor. During the sanding process, our experts use a dust containment system (DCS), which allows the rooms where the flooring is being installed to remain open to the rest of the home. Once the hardwood floor installation is complete, any remaining debris will be removed.

After your hardwood floor installation is complete, very little maintenance is required. And, since hardwood can be refinished several times, you will be able to enjoy your new hardwood floor for years.
