HARDWOOD FLOOR INSTALLATION
Today, the market is flooded with a variety of flooring options including tiles, carpeting, vinyl, natural stone, quartz etc. But wood flooring has an undying charm that continues to be one of the most popular flooring options across Washington D.C and Baltimore. There are a number of hardwood flooring species such as White Oak, Red Oak, Redwood, Yellow Birch, Red Birch, Walnut, Ash, Beech, Chestnut, American Cherry, Maple, and more to choose from.
While most of these hardwoods are very resilient, the quality of installation is crucial to maintaining the integrity and appearance of the flooring. We at John K. Eareckson & Co are the Premier Installer & Refinisher of Hardwood Floors that handles commercial and residential projects for customers across Baltimore/Washington, D.C.
Methods of Hardwood Floor Installations
We have been operating in this space for almost a 100 years now and over the decades, have assimilated a large amount of skill, knowledge, experience and expertise; there are hardly any other companies out there that can stand up to us on any front. We provide comprehensive, customized Hardwood Floor Installation in Baltimore and are the master installers that can handle projects of every scale. We use different installations methods, based on the types of floors that exist on the premises, such as:
- Direct Stick - This is a popular method of installing wooden flooring. In this, we first apply a moisture barrier to the concrete slab and the wood will then be glued & carefully nailed to the concrete.
- Plank on Ply - In case there are variations in the concrete slab surface, we use the plank on ply installation method. We first apply a moisture barrier on the concrete slab. Plywood sheets will then be glued & nailed to it; the hardwood flooring will then be glued & top-nailed to these plywood sheets.
- Plank on Battens - Not many property owners opt for this type of Hardwood Floor Installation in Washington D.C, but some people do prefer a hollow-sounding floor. In this installation, battens will be fixed to the floor and the timber flooring planks will be affixed to these battens.
The floors will be sanded, stained and sealed to perfection. For more information, you can speak with our Hardwood Floor Installations in Baltimore experts at John K.
