September 27, 2017

Are you considering Denver hardwood installation? There are a variety of options to help you with a home remodel or for installing new hardwood throughout a home. When you are starting with a clean slate, you have many options to transform all areas of your home in a way that works with your style, as well as your budget. When you are considering what you should do for your home, learn about unfinished flooring, prefinished floors, and floating flooring.

Unfinished Floors

When you would like to get your hardwood flooring project started off with the raw, original hardwood materials, unfinished flooring is the ideal option for you. This is a common route used when you have existing hardwood in your home, and you will be adding more hardwood in other areas. When starting with an unfinished option, you can easily ensure the new flooring matches the old flooring through staining. It is also a great option when starting off to create an option that is all a consistent color. Also, when choosing unfinished, you have your choice of plank sizes, and more.

Prefinished Floors

If you are looking for an easily solution for installing new hardwood flooring into your home, prefinished is an option to consider. Prefinished flooring are planks of hardwood that have a finishing treatment applied to them from the factory, allowing those purchasing the hardwood to see it in its final and finished state. It also bypasses all of the necessary tasks, including sanding, and UV-ray resistant coating to help keep the floors from fading. Since you will be forgoing the initial steps, you will not have to deal with any smells in your home, or being exposed to any toxins. Learn more about, Should I Pick Prefinished Flooring?

Floating Flooring

Another convenient option for your hardwood flooring installation if floating flooring. This option of flooring has pre laminated planks that snap together to attach. This is an ideal option for those who are trying to handle the installation on your own, without hassle, as it can be laid down over existing flooring—especially concrete floors. It tends to be a more cost-effective solution as well since it has been pre-treated and will not need to be nailed the same way traditional hardwood flooring will need to be. You can also rest easy knowing this investment will last for decades the way traditional hardwood will last, too. Starting your project? Learn more about floating floors and D.I.Y.
