We Know the Latest Trends
The last thing you want is to install a new floor that will not stand the tests of time. All of the floors we offer provide durability. But we also stay on top of the latest design trends, to help you achieve a timely, stylish and updated look for your home or commercial space. Instead of worrying about being behind the last design curve, with our insights and help, you can increase your property value while getting ahead of the next big trend.
Some of the current trends for hardwood floors include:
• Wide planks up to 7 1/2″
• Oaks with white or grey washes
• Mullican Mount Castle wide planks
• Armstrong TimberBrushed wide planks
• Armstrong TimberCuts wide planks
Subfloor Preparation for Installation
Not all subflooring provides a suitable foundation for solid hardwood floors. For example, particle board does not hold nails well and causes hardwoods to loosen and shift. If your subfloor has particle board, we can remove this layer and install more plywood for structural integrity and decades of stability.
We install all wood flooring according to the National Wood Flooring Association’s (NWFA) specifications. This includes ensuring a 3/4-inch minimum subfloor when joists are 16 inches on-center. Although removing particle board and adding plywood increases the cost of your solid wood flooring, this service is key for ensuring the stability of your new floors.
As an alternative, you can choose engineered hardwood flooring or floating luxury vinyl planks to work with your present particle board subfloor. This can save you thousands of dollars and certainly depends on your floor design goals.
Site-Finished Hardwood Floors Installation in Multiple Species of Wood
If you want your hardwood floors finished on-site instead of by the manufacturer, Tri Point Flooring offers our Raleigh area customers a variety of unfinished flooring options. These include:
• Red oak
• White oak
• Brazilian cherry
Despite initial inconvenience as part of the finishing process, site-finished flooring offers many benefits. These floors do not feature beveled edges. This means you do not have those edges collecting dirt or dust. Sanding as part of installation also smooths the surface and eliminates all height differences between boards. For site-finished flooring, you also have unlimited options in wood species, colors and finishes.
Clearing Your Floors for Hardwood Flooring Installation
One of the biggest steps in your new floor installation is removal of all of your existing furniture and belongings from the spaces in which we will work. Unfortunately, this is a requirement before our installers arrive for the pre-set appointment. By doing this, you enable us to get to work immediately and finish your job efficiently.
We understand that some pieces of furniture are particularly heavy or cumbersome. Our installers cannot move all of your furnishings, but we can help with one or two pieces. Another option is moving furniture around our installation work, shifting it from room to room instead of outside of the house or commercial space. We must advise that furniture moving can delay installation and our projected completion date. Additional costs can apply for second floor installations.
