Which is better engineered wood floor , soild wood or laminate?

engineered floor 4 Comments »

I want to replace the carpet in my hallway.

Depends on your life style and where your putting it, which is better for you. Solid wood, good invest ment but the most maintenance. Not always a good idea for a a family w/ pets and kids.
Engineered wood for some one with and older family members and don t mind a little maintenance since it s about the same as real wood.
Laminate I suggest for a family with kids and or pets, It s good since its tough ( as long as you don t get the 99 cents a s/f junk) Easy to maintain . All 3 products are prone to water damage from kids. pets and water leaks with laminate the easiest overall to replace.
If your doing a dining room that s seldom used, wood flooring. But a high traffic area w/ a busy lifestyle, perhaps not.
Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar . GL

How do you lay an ‘engineered’ wood floor (step by step if poss!?)?

Is it an easy job for an amateur?
The floor it is going on is half original floorboards and half solid concrete (all flat and level).
Cheers

This site has all the best installation guides. Type engineered wood floor in the search and up pops a load of videos, some are very well documented. You’ll find it difficult to get a tutorial on laying onto concrete though, most of the tutorials are about laying engineered ontop of wood. But good luck

is it necessary to seal a concrete floor when laying engineered hardwood floor?

engineered floor 1 Comment »


You really need to check with the manufacturer of your flooring but many manufacturers recommend that you cover a two or three foot square area of the concrete with a sheet of plastic with all of the edges sealed with tape so any moisture that might be migrating up from below the slab will be trapped. You let the sheet set undisturbed for 24 to 48 hours. If there is a moisture, you will see drops of water or at least the concrete will be damp.

If this test shows no moisture then you don’t have to worry about sealing the concrete.

In any case most engineered floor systems use a thin plastic foam sheet that when completely taped at the joints serves as both padding and a vapor barrier.

Cement by nature is damp if the air is damp. Are you sure the dampness isn’t just the air. If its only a slight dampness from that try a dehumidifier. They work well but put heat into the room. Not much thou.
ALSO:
Your french drains need checked. Make sure they aren’t clogged.
If you DON’T have french drains then you might have a bigger problem. If drains are in good shape and you still have water then you might have some underground water seepage problem, and you might want to contact a contractor. Also talk to other people who have lived in the area… you would be surprised how much they know about the water run off and things like that… believe me if they are older they will know tons of things that will be helpful.
