Installing parquet flooring is best left to professionals who are skilled in parquet floor installation. We only use the finest materials to get you floors that will gracefully last a lifetime.
Glue-Down Wood Floor
When a wood floor is glued to a subfloor, the result can be quite excellent. You can get a stable floor with glue-down wood and a substantial feel and sound. This type of flooring is suited to either wood or concrete subfloor.
With any floor installation, subfloor preparation is an essential first step. Whether it’s sanding, leveling, filling low areas, or installing an entirely new subfloor – subfloor preparation is especially critical for a glue-down wood floor installation. This method uses adhesive as a bonding agent that you apply to the subfloor before laying down the wood. However, not all adhesives are created equal. Hardwood adhesive is specially made to adapt to the characteristics of wood. This type of glue is more elastic than other adhesives, which ensures that the hardwood will have enough space to expand or contract through the seasons.
At Definitive Designs Flooring, we always make sure to conduct proper floor preparation and use the top-of-the-line wood adhesive that will result in a successful glue-down wood floor installation. To learn more about this installation process, contact our office.
Whether you’re renovating or buying a new house, the flooring bolsters every other element in the home. There are different types of flooring options available – from carpet to laminate. However, one flooring material is the acknowledged standard and the most well preferred: hardwood.
A Lovely Upgrade
Hardwood floors are a lovely upgrade to any home. However, not all hardwoods are the same, and it is more than just picking your favorite color.
There are other factors to consider that will significantly affect the look and durability of hardwood floors.

REFINISHING ENGINEERED WOOD FLOORS
A good replica for solid wood, engineered wood floors are in fact high-grade plywood with a thick piece of hardwood layer on top. The finished wood is what you walk on, also known as the “wear layer” or the “tread layer.”
It’s the type of plywood that distinguishes engineered wood flooring from solid hardwood. Each board is placed perpendicular to its adjacent ply, meaning it is dimensionally stable. Unlike solid wood, the plywood base of engineered wood floors reacts less upon contact with moisture. This type of flooring holds up well to spaces with light humidity such as kitchens and basements.
