Easy Methods For Installing Hardwood Tiles

By Steve Everett

Installing real hardwood floors can be done in different ways. These are all self doable methods. This article will teach you how to do these methods by yourself.

The first we are going to tackle is the floating hardwood floor installation. What happens here is that you put all the planks together and the lay them down altogether on the floor. Make sure that you leave some room on the edges for expansion. A skirting is utilized so that the edges is covered, creating a look that is seamless.

Another installation method is the staple down hardwood installation. You may also call it as tack down wood installation. Among the installation techniques, this is not popularly used because there is no expansion and movement necessary. All the boards are actually nailed down into the sub floor in this method. But this is easily, hands down, the simplest and easiest way to install hardwood floor.

Stick-down installation is another technique for hardwood installation. This type of installation makes use of special techniques and needs materials that are of exact measurements. You will need to glue down the boards onto the subfloor. Like staple down wood floor installation, there is no need to call for expansion gap and skirting. The advantage of this installation technique is that it creates a quieter flooring to walk onto because there are extra layers laid on the sub floor which reduce noise of the wood.

Real wood flooring does not require you a high level of maintenance. But like other types of flooring materials, you need to regularly maintain the cleanliness and beauty of your hardwood floor to preserve and use it for a long time. Ensure that you still manage to clean and take good care of your real hardwood floor from time to time.

You have just learned some methods of installing hardwood flooring. All you need to do is to have a little faith in your abilities.
