If you’re thinking of putting in wood floors, you can’t go wrong. All types of hardwood floors have unmatched natural beauty and go with any decor — modern, traditional, country, you name it. Hardwood flooring goes in any room, although kitchens and basements warrant special considerations.
Hardwood flooring is increasing in popularity and is one of the most durable choices -- especially when choosing a pre-finished hardwood floor to install. Some pre-finished hardwood flooring comes with a 50-year manufacturer's warranty. With some basic carpentry skills and a few tips, installing a hardwood floor is a relatively easy do-it-yourself project.
Hardwood floors can be used in any room -- kitchens are very popular now. A 3/4" Brazilian Teak is installed over 3/4" plywood. If you are installing hardwood floors on a concrete slab or have a height problem, use 3/8" materials because they're thinner.
When you think of hardwood floors, you think of unfinished floors that you have to sand and finish. We are installing pre-finished flooring. There is a laminate that has a paper-thin wear layer of wood glued to press board. It is relatively inexpensive, but, in the long run, it's better to use solid wood with a 3/4" wear layer that can be sanded down and refinished later on if there is damage.
The pre-finished floor saves a lot of labor and is a better finish. They are applied in a factory setting and are sanded three times and usually have eight coats of finish with aluminum oxide on it. The finish is baked on. It is UV cured and as it goes through each layer it is built up and has actual pieces of metal in the finish. The metal pieces give it a very high Taber Test, which is a test done in a laboratory where they test the finish by taking an abrasive wheel and testing to see how many rotations it takes to wear through into the wood.
