Hardwood floor installation, Margate, NJ 08402
The pictures you see above are of the floor before and while we were installing the vapor barriers and subfloor before installing the new prefinished hardwood floor.
This is a hardwood floor we installed for Paramount Construction at one of his clients homes in Margate NJ, that was damaged due to Hurricane Sandy, then after Hurricane Sandy they had a fire in the home.This is a 3/4 inch solid prefinished hardwood floor. This home had a lot of moisture in it from Hurricane Sandy, so we had to wait to make sure the moisture level was right in the house. The wood was delivered a week prior to installation so it could acclimate to the homes environment. The old hardwood floor could not be salvaged so it had to be removed. The color of this floor is Called Latte and we also refinished the hardwood staircase in a color called Jaco Bean with a small amount of royal mahogany to match the floor with a satin finish.
When Extreme Floor Care started the hardwood floor installation, on the first floor we first put down a vapor barrier called aqua bar, then a new sub floor and another vapor barrier of aqua bar on top before the floor could be installed. This extra layer of protection was done at the home at the owners request because of moisture under the house. This client is a year round resident. The floor needed to have a 1/2 to 3/4 inch space around the perimeter of the rooms because for expansion and contraction of the wood floor. That is why it is necessary to have trim applied and sometimes quarter round after hardwood floor installation. No matter the age of the floor, wood floors will always expand and contract over their life and if the floor isn't installed properly the floor will buckle if enough space is not left for it to move. Always check with the manufacturers instructions if it is a prefinished floor. At Extreme Floor Care we install hardwood floors, refinish hardwood floors along with staining and also do hardwood floor restoration and hardwood floor repairs. We also provide a DUSTLESS hardwood floor resurfacing. This is for a floor that is in good condition but has surface scratches. Extreme Floor Care comes in and screens the floor which is preparing the last coat to accept the next coat and apply a new coat of polyurethane in either a satin, semi gloss or glossy finish. This is a 1 day process.
