Los Angeles Hardwood Flooring and Installation

Choosing a Hardwood Floor for You

Hardwood floors are a beautiful and timeless addition to any home, but with so many varieties on the market, choosing the right one can be overwhelming. Here's a breakdown of some key factors to consider:

Solid vs. Engineered:

  • Solid hardwood is a classic choice, made from planks of a single wood species. It's incredibly durable and can be sanded and refinished multiple times over its lifespan. However, it's susceptible to moisture and may not be suitable for basements or areas with fluctuating temperatures.

  • Engineered hardwood offers more flexibility. It has a core construction with a real wood veneer on top. This makes it more resistant to moisture warping and can be installed over concrete subfloors. Engineered planks are typically thinner than solid hardwood and may not be refinishable as many times.

Species and Durability:

  • Different wood species have varying degrees of hardness. Hickory, oak, and maple are known for their excellent durability, ideal for high-traffic areas. Softer woods like pine scratch more easily but offer a warmer look and a more budget-friendly option.

  • Consider your lifestyle. If you have pets or children, prioritize a harder wood species that can withstand scratches and dents.

Appearance:

  • Grain pattern affects the visual texture of the floor. Plain-sawn is the most common, with a swirling cathedral pattern. Rift-sawn has a straighter, more uniform grain and is the most expensive option. Quarter-sawn offers a unique 3D effect with a touch of irregularity.

  • Board width plays a big role in the overall feel of the room. Wider planks (over 5 inches) create a more modern, spacious look, while narrower planks (less than 3 inches) give a classic, traditional feel.

  • Color ties your design together. Light-colored floors brighten up a space, while dark floors add drama and sophistication. Consider the amount of natural light in the room and the overall color scheme of your décor.

Additional factors:

  • Finished vs. unfinished: Prefinished floors are quicker to install but offer less customization. Unfinished floors can be stained to match your exact preferences but require more labor during installation.

  • Budget: Solid hardwood is generally more expensive than engineered hardwood. Prices can also vary depending on the wood species, plank width, and finish.

 

By considering these factors, you can choose the perfect hardwood floor that complements your style, fits your needs, and lasts for years to come. Visit our flooring store to explore your options and get a feel for the different types of hardwood flooring in person.

Our Hardwood Floors Installation Process

We take pride in providing a seamless hardwood floor installation experience for our Los Angeles customers. Our process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Delivery and Acclimation: We ensure your chosen hardwood flooring is delivered safely and efficiently to your Los Angeles location. Following industry best practices, we will allow the wood planks to acclimate to the temperature and humidity levels in your home for several days. This crucial step minimizes the risk of warping or gapping after installation.

  2. Moisture Testing: Our team conducts thorough moisture testing of your subfloor to identify any potential moisture problems. Proper moisture levels are essential for a successful and long-lasting hardwood floor installation.

  3. Sub-Floor Preparation: Meticulous preparation of the subfloor is paramount for a flawless installation. Our professionals will address any unevenness, cracks, or imperfections in the subfloor to create a level and stable surface for the new hardwood flooring.

  4. Sub-Floor Primer: Depending on the subfloor material and moisture levels, we may recommend applying a high-quality subfloor primer. This primer strengthens the subfloor and creates a moisture barrier to protect your new hardwood investment.
