Installing our floors can either be done professionally, which is a real time saver, or as a do-it-yourself project. Depending on the product and the mill, most of our flooring can be prefinished. However, over the years we have found the best finish is a site finish. This is why 99% of the jobs we do are supplied and installed by our trained professionals. We use a 2-component finish specifically designed for high traffic residential and commercial applications. The product is known as “Traffic” and is made in Sweden by BonaKemi . See www.bona.com for more info.
The most common installation involves gluing and nailing directly into a ¾” subfloor.
Any of our floors can be installed over concrete and in-floor radiant heat by using an engineered or solid product.
Regardless of the type of installation, we offer a wide selection of wood products, either solid or engineered, to fit your project and suit your needs.
When to order your new Floor
Choosing when to order your new flooring depends on whether or not you are replacing your existing flooring, renovating, or planning a new construction project. In any case, delivery can take anywhere from four to eight weeks (possibly less), depending on the flooring option you choose.
In new construction, your flooring should be one of the last things to get done when choosing to go with a pre-sanded, micro-bevelled product. If going with a full sand-on-site finish, your flooring should be installed after the first prime coat and covered with heavy cardboard for protection. A full sanding would take place once everything is almost completed … floor sealed and/or stained and clear-coated. The final coating will take place after all trades are completed with a minimum of 72 hours of dry time prior to move-in.
