Wooden floor – tips and tricks for buyers

Hardwood Buying Guide | Lowe's Canada

Picking the wooden floor can be tricky, especially if you try to do it on your own.  So here are a few tips and tricks that should be considered before purchasing the wooden floor.

•    Before deciding to buy, do some research on local flooring stores or contractors. Look for information on the store’s or contractor’s internet page or better call and ask. Be careful when buying online.  It is better to see the product in person.  

•    Consider what type of subfloor you have in your home as this can have an impact on the form of wood you choose, the installation method of the wood floor, and your budget. For instance, if you have a plywood sub-floor, solid hardwood flooring will be a better option for you. The engineered flooring can go directly on top of the concrete, while if you want to do solid hardwood, you must first add a plywood sub-floor.

•    Color, grain, and texture depend on your style and taste, as well as the decor of your home. However, if you have a busy household, keep in mind that woods with stronger rustic graining, hand-scraped look, and lighter colors of floor tend to show scratches and dents less.

•    Wooden flooring can both be pre-finished or finished after it is installed. If you choose prefinished floors, it makes the installation of the floor faster and less messy because you avoid the sanding and finishing process. Site finishing makes wooden floors more water-proof, and this is especially important in kitchens or bathrooms.

Also, as there are five main types of wood floors: vinyl, laminate, parquet, solid, and engineered hardwood flooring, that gives you a variety of options, I strongly recommend consulting with the experts to make ar right decision. Here you can find the best Styldrzewa.pl products.
