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 top coat (Traffic) requires 72 hours for complete curing.
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 three to six weeks, depending on amount and species.
In new construction, your flooring should be one of the last things to get installed. If going with a site-finished product, the flooring can be installed either before or after cabinetry installation, depending on timing and/or preference.
