When you hire a professional to install new hardwood floors, make sure you hire someone who is going to let you be a part of the process. You are going to be living with these floors for a long time; you want them done right the first time. Installing new floors is a process, so make sure you hire a contractor
Designing new hardwood floors require a lot of planning and preparation. There are many choices to consider, and you want to be a part of every one of them – from the type of wood to the color, stain, and finish, as well as the installation pattern. Finding the right craftsman is imperative. If you talk to a hardwood flooring contractor who keeps trying to steer you away from your ideas or talk you into something that you’re not 100% comfortable with, you should think about hiring another professional.
Subfloors are critical in hardwood floor design
Of course, you need to listen to your contractor as well. Certain types of wood will require a certain type of subfloor, so if you insist on solid oak floors but don’t have the subfloor to support it, a flooring expert may try to steer you towards another type of wood, or you have to be prepared to pay extra for new subfloors. However, a professional will always give you options and explain why they are trying to steer you in another direction.
Of course, if the expert you’re talking to doesn’t talk to you about the subfloor or include properly preparing the subfloor in their quote, then you should be concerned. A true professional is going to want to ensure that your subfloor is level and dry.
