Wood Floor Installation

There are tons of reasons to choose hardwood floors over the traditional carpet or even vinyl. In many cases, carpet and vinyl can become too damaged to disguise. On the other hand, wood floors are easy to manage and give your home a classic, elegant look. Not to mention, they are much more durable when it comes to wear and tear. Properly installed and well-kept hardwood floors can last decades.

Did you know that hardwood floors are better for your health and the environment? Carpet tends to trap allergens, toxins, and unwanted pests that can affect your health. These are issues you won’t have with hardwood, as allergens and other unwanted entities are easily mopped or swept away. Wood is also the eco-friendly choice because it is a natural substance and can better insulate your home, lowering energy costs. 

If you already have wood flooring, we know that not all hardwood floors can be recovered. Sometimes too much damage has already been done. That’s where Buff & Coat comes in. Our wood floor installers have provided expert service in Richmond, Midlothian, Chesterfield & Glen Allen for over 20 years. 

 

Common Causes for Replacing Your Hardwood Floors


If you are in search of more reasons to choose hardwood floors over carpet, look no further. Not only are hardwood floors longer lasting, easier to clean, and the healthier option, but they are also much easier to repair. Fixing stains, water damage or tears in carpet can be impossible. With hardwood, you won’t have to replace the floor of an entire room if only a portion becomes damaged. Sections of hardwood are easily replaced without having to do the rest of the room. 

No matter why you’re looking for a hardwood floor replacement, Buff & Coat is up to the task. We have a number of hardwood floor replacement solutions, including:

- For scratches too deep to be repaired, we replace the damaged planks with new ones so those blemishes will look like they were never even there.  

- Hardwood finishes are extremely durable, but they can still be affected by household substances. Water, milk, juice, pet urine, and bleach can all eat away at your floor’s finish and leave them stained. Buff & Coat can fix these sections of your hardwood floors individually without costing you a fortune.

- Water stains are very common on hardwood floors as many household appliances can experience leaks and drips. Luckily, water damaged can usually be removed with our floor sanding service. Water can also cause warping, expansion, and wood rot. When this happens, it is more serious and requires floor replacement. Buff & Coat can handle that too. 

 

Buff & Coat Floor Installation Method

Installing hardwood floors can vary depending on the width, thickness, and construction of the hardwood product, and where it is being installed. 

- Solid hardwood flooring is usually nailed or stapled to a subfloor. 

- Engineered floors are fastened, glued, or installed as a floating floor.
