Out with the Old: Updating Your Hardwood Floors in Hamilton, ON

Family Room Wooden Flooring

Wood floors transform the look of a home, adding a touch of class and timeless beauty to your flooring. They are durable, easy to maintain and with the proper installation, can last a lifetime. If you have old, worn out hardwood floors and are looking for hardwood floor repairs, or just thinking of updating your hardwood floors, there are a few things you should consider: 

Choosing the Right Materials

Before installing new hardwood floors, it is important to choose the right materials. There are two types of hardwood to choose from, such as solid and engineered hardwood. Each type of hardwood has its own unique characteristics, so it is important to do your research and choose the type that fits your needs and style. 

Preparing the Subfloor

Preparing your subfloors is the most important step in getting perfectly installed, seamlessly fitted hardwood floors. Uneven spots should be levelled out according to the required thickness and new plywood sheets should be installed if needed. The area should be cleaned and dried before installation giving you a durable and sturdy base for your hardwood floors. 

Installation Process

Once the subfloor is prepared, the installation process can begin. Each plank should be measured and cut precisely for seamless connectivity and an aesthetic look. Then the planks should be cut down to size and glued and nailed to hold them down after bonding them to the subfloor. Lastly, the floors should be trimmed, covering the stairs, doorways, and walls so that the flooring flows smoothly throughout the house. 

Professional Installation

While some people may choose to install their own hardwood floors, it is recommended to have them installed by a professional. Professional hardwood floor installers have the skills and experience to install hardwood floors to perfection. They also have the necessary tools and equipment to ensure the installation is done correctly. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Choosing the right type of hardwood flooring depends on several factors such as the style of your home, your budget, and your lifestyle. Solid hardwood is a traditional and luxurious option that can last a lifetime, while engineered hardwood is more affordable and versatile. Luxury vinyl and laminates are durable and easy to maintain alternatives to hardwood. Ferreira Flooring can guide you through the selection process and help you choose the best option for your home. 

Yes, hardwood floors can be installed over existing flooring if it is a smooth and level surface. However, it is recommended to remove the existing flooring to ensure a proper installation and avoid any potential issues. 

To maintain and care for your hardwood floors, you should regularly sweep or vacuum to remove dirt and debris, wipe up spills immediately and use furniture pads to avoid scratches. You should also avoid harsh cleaning products or excess water, as this can damage the flooring.

Woa- we can’t be more thankful for Alex and the care and quality he put into helping us transform our space.Alex it truly a great communicator, very professional and his work speaks for itself.We had done a ceramic tile installation in our kitchen over a year ago, that over time had seen a lot of wear and tear, and the tiles began to shift. We unfortunately had to get these removed and so we found Alex online. His site, photos and work looked good so we called him to assess the project.From day 1 we felt good about moving forward with Alex and felt like he knew immediately what we were going for and what we wanted, and even offered some great suggestions that helped make the finish product even better.The entire process Alex kept us in the loop of what’s going on and how the process was moving forward.Once the project was complete, he even ended up coming back the following week to ensure that everything was finished up and even replaced a slightly damaged tile.We feel very fortunate to have had Alex help us make our house more homey.Without hesitation, we’d love to have Alex back for any future needs we may have!Thank you!

Alex and his team are amazing. They are very professional, arrive on time, and share a positive and energetic attitude about your project no matter how big or small. He is through and asks questions to the homeowner instead of just doing. He’s meticulous in choosing the wood to use out of the box and has recommendations Of what to do when product arrives damaged or warped. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
