If you are remodeling your home or building a home for the first time, there's a lot of unknowns. One of the most popular steps when remodeling or building a room is installing floors. If you've never had wood floors installed, here's what happens in four easy steps.

The first step of wood floor installation is the consultation. Many times, a representative from a flooring company will visit your home to provide you with samples and discuss pricing. This individual understands how much different types of flooring costs depending on the room you are designing. They also know what type of flooring is best for your home. Wood floors vary in color, texture, and durability, and a professional representative can help you decide which selections are most appropriate for your space.

The second step in wood floor installation is room preparation. A room must be prepped before a single panel is laid down. Prepping your room reduces the risk for damage. Make sure to move your furniture out of the room so it is not damaged or broken during the installation process. The more clear a room is, the easier it is for professionals to install your flooring.

Step three is the actual wood floor installation process itself. A team of professionals can visit your home and install your flooring for you. During this time, there will be significant traffic in your home, so prepare for some noise. Once the panels of flooring are laid down, the team will sand them for smoothness, while dusting as they sand. This minimizes mess and makes your floors shine.

The final step in wood flooring installation is staining and finishing. The professional team that is installing your flooring will stain and finish your floors to make sure they are as perfect as possible. Select a stain that matches your home design and your personality for the most customized design possible.
