Hardwood Flooring Installation


True hardwood floors require turnkey installation – it isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. Consider the shape of your room, any odd or awkward angles, and the time it will take from start to finish before you jump in. Remember, any mistakes that require the help of a professional will make this project cost a lot more than if you started with a licensed installer to begin with.

You’ll also need to make sure you have all of the correct tools, the space to make cuts and store old materials that get ripped up in the process, and the time to let your hardwood flooring adjust to its new surroundings. Buckling, warping, and other problems are easy to run into when doing a hardwood installation yourself.

If you like the look of hardwood flooring but are on a budget or time crunch, luxury vinyl plank is a great alternative that can provide the look and feel you’re after and help you save money in the process. Plus, the vinyl flooring installation process is much easier with this material. Remember, our Flooring By Design team is always here to answer any questions you may have!
