NJ Home Improvement Contractor: New Construction

As a NJ Home Improvement contractor, Many of our customers request hardwood installations in their entire home renovations. In almost all of our new raised level packages, hardwood flooring installations seems to be almost mandatory with the homeowners. We will install new #1 red oak or select grade on the entire upstairs less the bathrooms and laundry areas. We will then treat the flooring with polyurethane and a final buff coat and within 3 days the flooring is ready to walk on. Remember, that was the new top floor or even a new addition area. Everything is new so it a simple procedure for the install. Let’s go to the first floor and talk about your hardwood flooring installation in the existing renovated area.

NJ Home Improvement Contractor: Hardwood & Your Home Renovation

Many of our complete home renovations  include both a new raised level in addition to a completely revised first floor plan with a first floor extension. The existing first floor usually always has the original hardwood flooring. We will remove several walls during the home renovation. Your NJ Home Improvement Contractor will then be left with a decision. How  will he be able to repair and install hardwood on the first floor. Remember, the original walls were removed. On the floor will be  4  1/2″ wide gaps from where the walls used to lie. If a twenty foot wall was removed then there will be a 20′ x 4 1/2″ gap in the floor. There  are 2 choices. The first is to remove ALL the hardwood flooring throughout the first floor. Then reinstall the new. If you are not worried about the budget and or the numbers work out, then this option is fine. The second choice is to feather the old hardwood in with the new hardwood flooring. Your NJ Home Improvement Contractor will use a staggering or weaving process. He will remove the nearest pieces and fill with new hardwood accordingly. When ready, he will sand the entire floor and the weaved areas all together. When completed, your first floor will look absolutely brand new. The positive here is that you  were able to salvage the existing hardwood and saving you a good deal of money.
