If you are considering turning the installation of your hardwood floor into a DIY project, we suggest you think twice. While it can certainly be done, there are many reasons to leave it to a professional.
For one thing, there are many specialty tools used in the installation of wood floors. To purchase them yourself for a one-time use, seems like a waste of money. There are also considerations to be made in lieu of spacing around the outer edges of the wood floor. This will allow for expanding and contracting without warping or cracking your floor.
And finally, if you leave the installation to a knowledgeable professional, you have the peace of mind that comes along with it. They’ll get the job done right the first time, or make it right if they don’t.
