What is the pro and con of intallation hardwood floor with "Floating" method?

hardwood floor installation 3 Comments »

I want to install the engeneered hardwood floor to my house. Should I choose the installation method with " glue down" or " floating"? Which one is better?

Floating is good for floors that won’t get "wet" or have dew on the ground. Basements are examples of floors that can’t use floating technique to install hardwood. But the floating method is convenient and not much gluing and is easier to remove if something’s wrong.

As for "glue down" method, it’s good for places like basements, where it will hold even if there is some water dripping on it. I use the glue don method, because I tried the floating method, and when i spilled something, the flooring would lift off the ground and ruin it. So I recommend glue down method, just to be safe of spills. Good luck!

Doors and Floor installation?

hardwood floor installation 8 Comments »

I have sub-floors in my condo and want to put in a hardwood floor and replace the interior doors. Should I install the new doors first before the new floor, or, the floors first then the doors?

Thanks, M

This type of question is one that has 2 different answers. If you want a easier flooring installation install the floor first (you see this done alot if it is an unfinished wood floor), if you want a easier door installation install the door first. Either set the height with a scrap piece of the wood floor (or) install the door to the floor and cut the bottoms with a saw. Normally, the doors are installed first (so the floor will not be damaged) but it can be done either way.

Hardwood floor purchased is defective and unsatisfactorly installed, retailer ignors issues, what can I do?

hardwood floor installation 5 Comments »

A certified floor inspector confirmed majority of hardwood floor is defective material and poor installation. Sent report to retailer in addition to phone calls and letters which go un -answered. What are my options?

first of all,what in hell is a "certified floor inspector"??Ive been in residential construction for 28 years and never heard that term before.
Contact the manufacturer of the product,not the retailer.Contact the installer about the poor work,unless of course you bought the flooring at home depot or lowes and used one of their "professional installers",contact their corporate office and state your case,including the store #where you bought the junk,and the people who you tried to resolve this through.
