Unfinished Floors –

This is the most common flooring installation. These floors are installed as raw wood, tongue and groove product on all 4 sides; sanded, stained and finished on site to suit the homeowner’s taste. A variety of stains and finishes may be used. There will be some noise and dust associated with this process. There’s nothing quite like a good site installed and finished floor.

Acclimating the Wood-

After your room has been cleaned and emptied, the wood must be acclimated to the environment. The time period for this step can range from a couple of days to two weeks depending on what species of wood is being used, temperature and humidity of the home, and the living conditions. For instance, the time for acclimation will be different for a home currently occupied as compared to a home under construction.

Barrett Hardwood Floors works hard to minimize the amount of time each project takes, and the amount of time that you will not have access to your room. Call us today for more information and your FREE estimate today!

Floating Floors –

Are typically a laminated, snap together floor in a variety of styles and colors. Floating floors are excellent for over concrete installations such as basement remodels.

Pre-finished Flooring –

Is ready to be nailed down or glued down with little mess; no sanding or staining and no chemical fumes. The ease and time saved on the installation of pre-finish flooring is an attraction that many of our customers want and need for their homes and businesses.
