2Stapled Nailed Down hardwood floor installation

We have fully tested all of our fasteners and found that only 15 gauge thickness of the nail or staple leg is good enough to ensure they will not snap under the pressure of expansion or contraction a moving hardwood floor installation .

AHF floor ltd is committed to the highest straight and square standards

With this method, we will nail down or staple solid or engineered wood strips to the sub-flooring (which usually is made either of plywood or plank wood). The floor is laid with random length strips – a few are placed down and arranged prior to fastening, to ensure proper placement and tautness. This is the racking out process laying out all the boards in front of you so you can see what's going on.

prefinished solid hardwood flooring is the bread and butter of all the flooring installations. AHF will sometimes install hardwood flooring that you supply weather unfinished or prefinished.

 

3Floating engineered wooden floor installation

We provide polite and professional hardwood floor installations services to those who choose to purchase their own wooded floors. Engineered are a type of real wood top plywood bottom very stable flooring for over an under pad and vapor barrier. This can be a great option to help add real wood feel and warmth of a hardwood floor to an otherwise impossible floor to cover.

When it comes to floating installations, the tongue and groove of every plank is glued together, leaving the flooring ‘floating’ over a foam-cushioned padding. If the flooring has a locking system, pieces can be fitted together without glue.

This is a method that is used both with laminate and engineered wood - in both cases the flooring is pre-finished. Floating installations can also be placed over sub-flooring of more questionable quality, which is not possible with nailing-down and gluing-down. As a general rule, laminate flooring gives a hollow feeling underfoot, with this particular method.

Another factor is the ‘wear’ layer - the thicker the layer, the more times it can be re-finished.

Finally, it’s important to remember that ‘floating’ floors expand and contract as a whole, because all of the pieces of wood have been fused together. You will need to allow for such expansion.

AHF's comprehensive service ensures that no detail is overlooked. We will determine the temperature, evenness of the sub-floor, and presence of moisture and sound barriers, before we even begin work. Whichever installation you choose, we guaranteed that you will be satisfied with the quality of our work and the finished product.
