I want to buy hardwood flooring material. Where Should i go to buy .?
But i m not live in USA.
Should i Hire a professional for selecting wood type and its installation method.?
Hiring a professional will certainly take the guess work out of types of wood flooring to choose from and the best method of installation. I would recommend hiring a professional installer. It may cost more money initially, but in the long run, you should have a better product for your home and end up paying less in repairs or mistakes in the future.
Check out the new Bamboo flooring. It is stronger than wood and looks fantastic.
Many people use pergo looks just like wood flooring and is easy to install. If you are doing oak flooring I would ask the advice of an expert. I was lucky when I bought my home it had oak flooring so all I had to do was have it sanded and sealed.
It is very important to hiring a professional home contractor. A quality hardwood floor will significantly improve a room’s appearance and the value of your home.
Okay. Thanks All for guiding me.
However, how can I decide that which type of flooring is good for my house, Because here in my city climate condition are changes very rapidly. And most important, Which type is best in the damp area?
When we replaced carpet in the house we got the hardwood floor planks from an online source. Even with relatively expensive shipping it was less than I could get the same from local stores.
Uni Click is a good floor type and they do some for wet rooms and very quick to lay and the best thing is you can lay it 3 times so if you move you can take the floor with you. Uni Click was the 1st company to do the click floors so all the rest try and copy there click system but Uni Click is still the best.
It is hard to beet the warm natural beauty of a hardwood floor, however, hardwood floor and damp conditions do not go together.
Maybe you would be better served, using a different flooring material that will hold up under damp or even wet weather conditions, stained concrete, or one of those tiles that simply look like hardwood.
If you have a ProSource store in your area, that's probably the best way to go. When I did floorcovering, 90% of the floors I sold to customers was through there.
Lowes is a good bet as well, but make sure you know your installer - unless you're going to do it yourself.
With the newer laminate wood floors, the real decision depends on what kind of look you want. If it's for wet areas, they also have a ceramic tile that mimics the look of wood. It's not all that bad, some of the more expensive tile actually does look like wood.
If you do it yourself, make sure to follow all the directions. Be sure to fit the wood pieces together before you lock them in place - some of them require a little trimming off the sides for a good fit. The best thing you can do for your wood floor is to make sure that the subfloor is in good, level condition, otherwise you'll have buckling later on.
Good luck with it!
Hmmm.... You've written several hubs on the subject. Not sure why you would be asking this question here, except to get people to search for hardwood flooring and find your hubs.
Just bought hardwood floor today, not looking forward to installing it!
Teak is the best quality for wood flooring, but it is also the most expensive ones. If you do not have an issue with budget, teak flooring is a smart choice.
If and when you decide to get wood flooring or another composite, be sure to keep in mind maintenance. Wood flooring has the warmth you feel you need, but if in a damp area, drylock the area. This is a paintable protectant in damp areas. Wood flooring can buckle, Then the cost gets expensive and maintenance gets harder as we grow older. Easy maintenance is the best choice and I would probably consult with an Interior Designer or a floor specialist.
I'm a newbie here. I love your hub very much. Keep on working. I will follow you.
I live in Maryland and we have places similar to thrift/
consignment shops for home improvement items. You can find everything from wood flooring, to tile, to cabinets, etc. I only shop at places like these and purchase what's available that suits, or closely suits my tastes.
My taste isn't very limited, so if there are places like this where you live, I suggest you check them out. You are bound to find something that not only appeals to you, but you will save a lot of money in the process. Sometimes, these places are
hit-n-miss, but in my opinion, it's well worth the wait, and if necessary...repeated trips.
One of the easiest hardwood floor to install is a floating floor. You only need a few simple tools available in a kit that can be bought for around $10 and the work is easy. You don't have to be a professional to do it. This type of installation can work for both wood and cork flooring
