Every hardwood surface
must have the correct subfloor installation, which can affect everything about the flooring experience, especially over time. The subfloor is the foundation for any flooring, but it's crucial for hardwood floors, often featuring nail-down installation methods. Here's some vital information to help you make the best subfloor choices for your wood flooring products.
Subflooring is the bottom structure level of your flooring and should be level, durable, and free from residue and damage, especially for hardwood flooring. Even the slightest deviations can cause problems, noise, and potential future damage, so it's essential to take great care with subfloor installation for the hardwood installation process. When you need a new subfloor, it's always best to use only professional technicians who understand these specific needs and how to create a subfloor that serves you best.
