There are so many things to consider when you are ready to install new flooring in your home. If you have decided to install engineered oak floors, here are a few tips and things that must be considered before installing new flooring. First of all, although acclimatization of engineered flooring is not essential, I still recommend a period of at least a few days before fitting. When acclimatizing your engineered oak floors leave it in its box, in the room where you are going to install it. Secondly, make sure the subfloor is as clean as can be. If not, sweep, vacuum, and wash the floor before leaving it to dry. Thirdly, once the surface is prepared, you can apply your engineered underlay. Also, consider that four possible installation methods are depending on the subfloor: glue, nail, staple, and float. Depending on the engineered oak flooring installation method, you may need different tools and materials. Recommended tools and materials have specific purposes that work together to achieve a professional finish. Also, before you begin the installation, carefully read the detailed installation instructions included with your product. Additionally, it is a good idea to watch a few installation videos on the internet. All in all, an engineered oak flooring installation takes time, precision, and knowledge. If you’re a handy person, you can try to install the floors yourself. However, if you feel it is overwhelming, I highly recommend hiring an installer who can get the job done right the first time. Good luck.
