It’s easy to see why hardwood floors are so popular. They add a sense of richness and natural beauty to your home. They are simple to maintain and clean. They can also last for generations if properly cared for. And new floors typically boost the value of the homes in which they are found. However, hardwood floors must be correctly placed for end users to get the desired output.
The most common mistake when installing hardwood flooring is likely incorrect hardwood acclimation. Excessive shrinkage, expansion, dimensional distortion, or structural damage to the boards can all result from this.
The top flooring installers understand that they are liable for correctly installing your hardwood floor. This is crucial in today’s litigious environment because once installed, the end user can presume that the boards are defect-free and fit for installation. While most hardwood floor suppliers will probably warrant manufacturing flaws, the installer will be liable for the labor component of any claim. The best strategy is for installers to spot any concerns while the hardwood boards are withdrawn from the box and discard any problematic boards. If the installer discovers a widespread issue, they should stop the installation and ask for an entirely new set of boards.
