How to install hardwood flooring

How to install hardwood flooring.

It is very common for hardwood flooring to be installed over an existing subfloor the subfloor needs to be three quarter of an inch plywood.However installing hardwood floors in today’s day and age includes nailing methods that have changed very much over the last few years.

In the old days we used to use nailers by hand with the big old mallet they required exact aim and quite a bit of strength but today we don’t rely on those nailers anymore instead we rely on pneumatic nailers.

In the old days the nails were very similar to a cut nail use for concrete today we use staplers for the most part. The question is asked all the time is it better to use nails or is it better to use staples.
For me is very easy staples come with long legs. As they entered the hardwood the legs braid themselves creating a very intricate lock. It is very hard to remove boards that were stapled together. Installers always have their own preference of which tool is best to use on the hardwood floors. We will leave that choice up to them but remember pneumatic staplers are much better to use.

The next thing that one has to make sure is that we have a good subfloor. The proper subfloor is three quarter of an inch plywood, particle board will not do or any other subfloor that is thinner than three quarter of an inch will not allow the nails or staples to seat properly.

Composite Decking

Composite Decking
If you ever thought about buying or building a deck made with composite decking than this small article is for you.

In times past it was much easier to build a deck, any deck for your house and the decision to choose the material was even more simple because there was only one material available: wood.

Today there are way too many choices regarding the materials used for decking, and the color choices and textures multiply the possibilities exponentially, also many different brands offer continuously improved versions of their decking at a ever increasing pace. What’s even stranger is that some of the components available to the contractor and the consumer today don’t even have any wood in it.

Do we even need that many choices and options? Man’s effort keeps improving thanks in no small part to technology and making our life better and more efficient.

In the not so distant past there was a common thread when it comes to wood decking, whether you are talking pine, cedar or redwood they all need extensive care and maintenance to keep up with the beating the elements bring like snow, rain, and the damage caused by the sun’s rays. Sanding the deck, resealing it and re staining are awful chores that cannot be ignored if one’s to maintain the deck.

Leave it to technology to find areal world solution to a real world problem. We call it composite decking.

Typically composite decking is made by combining different materials like wood by products and plastic and processing it to give it the appearance of real live wood. These materials themselves can be made out of virgin products or even recycled materials. Think of it as an amorphous pudding where the […]

Brazilian Cherry

Prefinished Brazilian Cherry Hardwood
The most beautiful South American Hardwood Flooring, is named Jatoba, in the native language, Brazilian Cherry. Though it does not produce any fruit, the hardwood floors we harvest out of this majestic tree are beautiful, hard, and super durable.
These pictures are beautiful examples of how and why Brazilian Cherry is known universally as the “king of Hardwoods”. Deep brown with strong wine undertones, make the color bouquet of this superstar. However what is most astonishing is the hardness associated with this species. Check out the Janka Hardness Scale as it relates to it.
