5 Top Questions to Answer When Selecting Timber Flooring

Once the decision to install wood flooring in your home is made, then it’s time to choose the type of timber flooring.  There are 5 questions you need to consider and answer as you proceed through the selection process. They are:
  1. What’s on the market?
  2. How much do I need?
  3. What’s the condition of the surface under the existing floor?
  4. What’s on the label?
  5. What’s on the warranty?
There are several different types of timber flooring available from traditional to exotic.  The most common type of wood used for wood flooring is oak. Oak is a hardwood, which means it provides a surface that is not easily dented or scratched. Oak wears quite well as a hardwood floor. Other woods used less often are cork and teak. To figure how much timber flooring you need to purchase, multiply the length by the width of the room in feet.  This gives you the square feet needed to cover the floor.  Generally, about 25 square feet of wood flooring are found in each carton of wood flooring. You can put timber flooring over concrete or wood subfloor. There are special adhesives for the different types of wood flooring and the type of subfloor. Each carton of timber flooring includes instructions on installation, maintenance and care.  Most consumer complaints are a result of the DIY jobs where the installer did not follow instructions or use proper tools or adhesive materials. When purchasing the timber flooring, be sure to review the warranty and then keep it in a safe place in case you need to make a claim against the product.
