Hardwood Floor Installation
Full service installation services of hardwood flooring offers the unique beauty that only hardwood flooring can offer. We offer the installation of both unfinished hardwood flooring, and pre-finished hardwood flooring. There are pros and cons to each of these, our knowledgeable staff will be able to help you understand the benefits of each of these options.
Unfinished hardwood flooring must initially be placed in the environment in which it will later be installed for at least 72 hours. This process is called acclimation. This allows the flooring the chance to equalize it’s moisture level with the environment it will later be installed. Failing to allow the opportunity to equalize, or acclimate can result in boards separating at the joints after they have been installed. The shrinking is the result of the boards loosing moisture in their new environment. Once the acclimation has occurred, we can move on to the installation. Upon the completion of the installation, we would sand the hardwood flooring to resurface your new floor. This process is performed with drum sanders, edgers, and floor buffers that all have dust recovery systems. There are several factors that will play into the refinishing process : your choice of staining the hardwood or not, the sheen in which you select for your new finish, and whether the polyurethane finish is water-based, or oil-base. Some exotic woods are not available in pre-finished selections. Feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have.
Pre-finished Hardwood Floor Installation
Much different than the unfinished hardwood flooring explained above… pre-finished hardwood flooring already comes with the finish on the product. There are again pros and cons to this type of product. Contact us directly for more information in determining what fits your needs the best. Pre-finished hardwood flooring comes in many options. Some of these are known as engineered wood flooring, pre-finished hardwood flooring, and some people often mistaken laminates as a hardwood floor. We will take a look at those next. Pre-finished wood flooring offers the homeowner the ability to by-pass the entire refinishing process. This cuts down on time and cost of refinishing, though the pre-finished products are often more than the unfinished products. ARS, Inc. offers installation of all flooring.
Laminate Floor Installation
Laminate flooring offers an inexpensive solution for a hard surface flooring installation. In many cases laminate flooring offers a higher durability factor that translates to homeowners as lasting investment. The ever evolving laminate flooring manufacturers are producing options to represent nearly all patterns of “real wood” appearance. Laminate flooring represents the similar installation practices of pre-finished wood floors. Call today for your free in home inspection and flooring consultation.
