The Hardwood Floor Installation Process
From the moment you contact Colorado Hardwood Floors for a hardwood flooring installation we ensure a great experience. Our first step in the process of a hardwood floor install is to come meet you, see the space you want work done in and see what the overall feel of the house is. Hardwood is a very specific trade that needs a caring company to ensure the perfect combination of luster, durability and expectations. The bid is usually an hour long process that goes over how our company does things start to finish as well as the process of installation of hardwoods.
Once the job is scheduled and everything is agreed upon, we begin the work on the specified day. The work is done by qualified professionals who will ensure a great, wonderful installation of your new hardwood. To ensure a great installation of your new hardwood we only use the best practices put fourth by the NWFA. A hardwood floor installation should last the lifetime of a house. Wood floors are one of the most sustainable options for flooring in a home.
Once the work is completed we like to do a walk-thru and show you the work that has been done. This allows us to educate you on taking care of the floor & maintenance of the new hardwood floor installation. A walk-thru brings closure to the job. This also allows you, the customer, to ask any questions you might have!
Much like the process for hardwood refinishing, we follow a simple multi-step procedure for your hardwood installation. The first step is getting a quote created for your project. During this step, we will visit your home to properly analyze the amount of materials needed and any special notes to make. We will discuss what it is you are looking for in a flooring and prepare options to choose from that we believe will best suit your needs and budget. Once we have agreed on a strategy, we will collaborate with you on the perfect time to install your flooring. Within this time, two weeks are built in to get your flooring properly acclimated for best installation practices.
After the hardwood is ready to be installed, our team shows up early on the first day to reiterate the plan with you. Colorado Hardwood employees will answer any questions or concerns you may have, and then we start our installation process. Because installation can take anywhere from 3 to 5 days, we make it a point to touch base with you every day to show our progress. When the installation is done, we will go through a final walk through of the area with you to show you the end result and ensure we have cleaned all materials from the site.
Expectations of CHF For Hardwood Installations
As with all of our services, our customers can always expect our employees to be on time and ready to work. Our team is prepared to answer any and all questions you may have about your hardwood installation throughout the entire process. Colorado Hardwood employees are trained to keep the utmost care when it comes to installation, and that requires using the best flooring nails and glue when needed. Floorboards will be tightly installed to reduce the amount of cracks between them to the best of our ability. With our expertise, your flooring will perfectly mold to doorways, wall slants, and hallways.
Although hardwood installation creates much less dust than hardwood refinishing, you can expect us to properly handle this dust to minimize the amount that is allowed in the air. We understand the sensitivities some people can have to sawdust and prepare accordingly. Getting our materials ready for your home is paramount to extending the life of your hardwood, which is why we acclimate the wood in order to minimize expansion once its installed in your home.

Exotic vs. Domestic
For the most part, we tend to recommend domestic hardwoods as the most durable, stable option for your home rather than exotic hardwoods. Throughout our in-home consultation, we will provide you with multiple options of hardwood to choose from based on your style, preferences, and color scheme. Most commonly, our customers tend to use walnut, hickory, oak, cherry, and maple hardwoods. Each have their different benefits and drawbacks. For example, while walnut is a more expensive option, it tends to be resistant to chipping, extremely durable, and will not warp. Hickory is lighter in color and can stand up to extended wear while holding onto a natural look.
Oak and maple both are great options for people that like to change up their home’s style a lot as they tend to blend with a variety of personalities. And finally, cherry is a wonderful option for those looking for an option that does not show quite as much dust or dirt and lends to some amazing acoustics. Because these hardwood options can have many of the same benefits, it can be easy to confuse them with each other. Colorado Hardwood experts are prepared to break down the pros and cons of each to recommend the perfect hardwood for your family and home in Denver.
