Hardwood Flooring Installation

Flooring by Js offers Durable strength, versatile Styles & Natural Materials.If you purchase hardwood flooring, you will need to decide between solid or engineered. Solid hardwood is milled from a single piece of wood. Because it can be repeatedly sanded, it can last for decades. A natural material, solid hardwood is susceptible to temperature and humidity changes and cannot be installed below grade or in damp spaces. It must be nailed to a wooden subfloor or glued Engineered hardwood floor is created by bonding layers of hardwood ("plies") together in a cross-grain construction.

These layers give greater stability. Because it can withstand higher levels of humidity, engineered hardwood flooring can be installed in baths and basements, as well as over concrete subfloors and radiant heating elements. Engineered hardwood flooring uses fewer trees than solid hardwood. It can be stapled or glued, or it can "float" (affixed to itself rather than the subfloor).
