What do you need to know about engineered or solid wood floor installation?
There are a few things to consider when choosing between engineered or solid wood floor installation. Engineered wood floors are better for rooms with a lot of moisture, mainly bathrooms and kitchens. They have greater stability than solid wood floors and depending on who you ask can also be cheaper. Solid wood floors are more sturdy and will last longer before needing to be replaced. If you are unsure it can help to have your property assessed. This can include checking the moisture levels in the rooms where you want new flooring installed. A qualified tradesman will be able to advise you on which floor will suit you best.
The cost of having engineered or solid wood floor installed can vary significantly. Your quote will usually be calculated according to the size of a room in square meters. Be sure to get a quote rather than an estimate! It is important to make sure any tradesmen you bring in to install your flooring are qualified carpenters with a good level of experience. There are several companies that specialise in wooden flooring, and these can make great consultants for when you are having your project assessed. It also pays to check examples from previously completed jobs when considering tradesmen, in addition to customer reviews. Before making your final hire ensure that your tradesmen are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
