The installation of hardwood floors is one of the best ways to give your home a new look. They are also a nice way to add value to your home. Depending on the type of wood that you are going to have installed, and the contractor that you hire to do the job, wood paneling can be a major facelift that will not necessarily cost an arm and a leg. There are a lot of companies in Atlanta that specialize in installing the beautiful hardwood floors in Atlanta residents love.
The contractor who will install your wood floor paneling will be able to do it using a small amount of tools, and a minimum amount of prep work. One of the first things that the contractor is going to do is bring the wood panels into the room that they are going to be installed in and open up the package and allow them to sit for around 72 hours so that the wood can acclimate to the temperature in the room. If the room is carpeted they will remove the carpet and the padding from the floor. They will then go around the room and use a prybar to remove the baseboard from around the room. He will then roll out building paper on the subfloor, and we use an X-Acto knife so that he can cut the paper so that it will perfectly match the size and shape of the floor that he is working on.
From there the contractor will lay out the hardwood panels so that they perfectly match the width of the floor that they are installing. The idea is to run hardwood paneling lengthwise down hallways, and parallel to walls and windows. This makes it easier to hide any of the joints that are in the wood flooring. Once the contractor is finished all that there is left for you to do is to sit back and enjoy your beautiful new wooden floors.
