6 Tips On Installing Wood Flooring In your Home

Installing wood flooring in one’s home can happen in varying ways depending on the type of flooring being used. They come in different shapes and sizes. Installing flooring for the first time may become stressful; however this should never be the case if the tips mentioned below are followed closely.

6 Tips On Installing Wood Flooring In Your Home

1. Follow the directions printed on the inner side of the packaging

Most packaging in Singapore comes with directions for installation on the inside part. Wood flooring installation cannot be guessed and therefore by reading these directions, one will become aware of the do’s and do not’s of the process. There are some instructions which an individual must read about. For example, if one is installing hardwood flooring, the packages need to be left open beforehand so that the wood may become acclimatized to the home temperatures and humidity. This gives the wood time to adjust so as to prevent breakage immediately after its installation. Some flooring should however be treated in the opposite way. They need to be kept in their packaging until when one is ready to have them installed. Reading instructions found in the package before starting the installation process of wood flooring is important.

2. Plan your steps carefully

Successful wood flooring installation depends majorly on careful planning. Before taking any step to install the flooring, it is essential that you speak to a professional in Singapore who will advise you on how to plan. Some types of flooring may require one to take specific measurements to the store before purchase while others may be measured at home after purchase. The steps for installation should also be well thought of. Sometimes cleaning the floor to remove dust before installation may not be necessary. At times, it may be required. It is therefore important to become familiar with such steps so that you do not waste time or energy while focusing on the least important activities.

3. Identify the type of wood flooring being installed

Different floorings are installed differently. If one is not familiar with the type being installed, mistakes may be made and as a result the flooring may be destroyed during installation. Some flooring may need to be glued to the ground to prevent them from coming off while others have a tongue and groove design which is supposed to keep them intact without the aid of glue. Being able to tell what you are working with is important as you can get professional advice on how to go about the installation process.

4. Measure the space where you need to install the flooring

Before placing any piece flooring, measure the room or areas where you need to cover before proceeding. This is essential as it will help you know the amount of flooring required to completely fill the space. It will save you from buying extra flooring which you may never need to use. This tip will therefore save you both time and money. With all the materials you need, there will not be a need to stop so that you can go and purchase more wood flooring.

5. Know the type of vapor barrier to use

Just before installing the wood flooring of your choice, ensure to spread out the vapor barrier paper onto the subfloor of the room. Not all vapor barriers are suitable however you can always ask the opinion of a professional jut to be sure you choose one which is suitable for your needs. While rolling the vapor barrier, also take note of the location of floor joists because the flooring needs to run perpendicular to them.

6. Choose your starting point

Starting the wood flooring installation is the trickiest part. Luckily after setting down the first row all the rest will go about smoothly. To make things easier, let your starting point be the longest exterior wall which runs perpendicular to the joists. Ensure that all planks are set straight so as to avoid confusion on the other end.

Although the above 6 Tips on Installing Wood Flooring in Your Home are available to offer guidance during installation, it is always better to let someone with the skill to handle such activities.
