Top Floor Hardwood Flooring Installation In Ancaster, ON

Location: Ancaster, ON | Project Duration: 1 Week

The Project

The clients, Jamil and Diana, were looking for a solution to fix the noisy and gapping hardwood of their home, which was failing due to poor installation and subfloor preparation. Our solution involved the installation of new engineered hardwood on the top floor of their residential property in Ancaster, ON. 

The Objective

The clients were looking for a long-lasting, durable solution that would address the poor quality of their original hardwood. They wanted to ensure that their new hardwood flooring would be installed correctly and would not have the same issues as their previous flooring, so they decided to seek out our company, which specializes in hardwood flooring installation.

Our Approach

We approached this project with focus on quality craftsmanship (our standard practice).

Our process to install the hardwood flooring on the top floor involved:

1. Complete Removal of the Existing Hardwood

We completely removed the existing hardwood to ensure that the new flooring would be installed on a properly prepared subfloor. 

2. Reinforcement of the Entire Subfloor
We then reinforced the entire subfloor with 3” screws to ensure that it was properly supported and levelled.
3. Installation of New Engineered Hardwood

After that we installed new engineered hardwood using glue and nails, ensuring a secure and long-lasting installation. 

4. Attention to Detail

We paid close attention to detail to ensure that the layout was properly aligned and that the installation was consistent throughout.

The Challenges

One of the main challenges we faced was dealing with minor squeaks in some areas of the subfloor, even after reinforcement. We were able to address the root of the problem by opening up a few spots in the subfloor and resolving the issue to create a completely squeak-free subfloor. 

The Solution

Our solution involved a comprehensive approach that addressed the root causes of the client’s flooring issues. By reinforcing the subfloor and installing new engineered hardwood, we removed any underlying issues that could have been caused by the original, poor quality flooring. 

By taking a thorough approach to the project and using high-quality materials and techniques, we were able to provide a long-lasting solution that the clients were extremely happy with.

Final Thoughts/Results

Our approach to this project focused on quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. We were able to provide a durable and speedy fix that addressed the client’s problems and provided them with a beautiful new hardwood floor. 

The end result had our clients speechless, and we are proud of the work we did to provide them with a hardwood flooring solution that exceeded their expectations.
