Flooring installation is best left to the pros

It's important to consider the type of installation required when choosing new flooring for your home. Some kinds of flooring can easily be placed on top of existing floors while others require you to stay out of the room for some time. Keep in mind that this factor may also determine the longevity of the floor. If a large area of a vinyl floor is damaged or stained in the coming years, a few luxury vinyl tiles can easily be removed and replaced. But the standard glued down sheet vinyl may need to be completely removed.

Before carpeting is installed, the existing floor is removed and a foam underpad is placed on the subfloor. It’s essential to use professional equipment to lay the carpeting. A carpet stretcher ensures that the carpet is even and won’t bulge. Then a seam roller is used to press down on the carpet to make certain that it sticks to the adhesive underneath it.

Solid wood

Installing unfinished solid hardwood is a big job. After existing flooring is removed, strips or planks are nailed to the subfloor, and then the floor is sanded, stained, and sealed. It takes about one week for installation and about one week for acclimation. Finished solid hardwood floors, which feature factory-applied treatments, can be installed in one day.

Luxury vinyl, laminate, and engineered hardwood

Some types of flooring are most often installed as a floating floor. These include luxury vinyl, laminate, and engineered hardwood. In some instances, these floor coverings can be installed on top of existing flooring. Planks and tiles fit together with click and lock or tongue and groove systems to create a floor that floats over the subfloor.

Ceramic and stone

Stones like marble, slate, and travertine as well as ceramic, porcelain, and terracotta are usually attached to the subfloor with thin-set adhesives and then bonded together with grout. A glaze is often applied to seal the floor. Installation is labor-intensive, and professional tools, such as a wet saw, are needed.
