Frequently Asked Questions About Flooring Installation | Knoxville, TN
WHAT STEPS SHOULD I TAKE TO PREPARE FOR KNOXVILLE FLOORING INSTALLATION?
While our local handyman professional will take care of the entire flooring installation, Knoxville, TN homeowners can help the process go smoothly by taking care of a few preparatory steps before the day of service, such as:
- Make sure there's a clear path from your nearest exterior door to the room being worked on so there's enough room to carry large, heavy, or awkwardly-shaped items
- Remove all furniture from your room
- Remove pictures, artwork, and curtains from the walls
- Remove items from closets attached to the room
- Clean the existing surface or subfloor
- On the day of service, set your thermostat to the recommended installation temperature for the material that will be put in
IS SOLID HARDWOOD BETTER THAN ENGINEERED WOOD?
Many people assume that solid hardwood is the better quality product and therefore the superior choice for flooring installation. Knoxville, TN homeowners are sometimes surprised to learn that one option is not actually better than the other—they're both quality products with their own pros and cons and engineered wood may even be preferable in some situations.
Solid hardwood flooring materials are, as the name suggests, made of solid wood planks that interlock on their sides with tongues and grooves. Since wood is a renewable material, this is an eco-friendly choice. Installation is more difficult and generally requires a vapor barrier since wood is prone to moisture damage. The upfront cost is higher, but hardwood can be refinished many times and will last for generations with basic care and maintenance. Engineered wood looks identical to hardwood because it has a veneer of real hardwood bonded to an MDF backing. It's less costly but will only last about 20 to 30 years before it needs to be replaced. It's also easier to install and less vulnerable to moisture exposure.
