Solid wood floor installation services
At Step Flooring, we specialise in solid wood floor installation. We have many years of experience and expertise in installing solid wood floors of any type and style.
We have all the tools and equipment needed for a professional and precise floor installation job. We also prepare the subfloor for the installation of the flooring, by using plywood to level the floor and laying the flooring on top of the plywood. This prevents any future problems and issues that may occur.
Solid wood flooring is the ultimate choice for wooden flooring. It is made of solid wood blocks or strips without any glue or layers like in engineered flooring, so it is completely natural and eco-friendly. The natural wood grain, coated with lacquer or oil, will look stunning in any room. Moreover, the solid wood blocks retain heat very well, are strong, very durable, and can be sanded and polished. If the floor is installed correctly, it can last up to a hundred years.
Before we start the solid wood floor installation, we recommend that you leave the floor in the room for 3-4 days. The floor needs to “acclimatise” to the microclimate. It is preferable that the room is heated during this time.
We also recommend that you keep the temperature at around +20 ° C and humidity at 40-60% during the installation process.
We usually install the flooring in the same direction as the sunlight.
After we finish the solid wood floor installation, you can enjoy your beautiful and long-lasting floor. The hardwood flooring usually comes prefinished, but if it is not, it would need to be sealed with lacquer or oiled. Clear lacquer or oil will enhance the natural character of the wood. Applying natural oil or waxing is the most ancient way of preserving wooden flooring from external and internal influences for hundreds of years. Sealing the floor is the final stage of a successful flooring job.
