We recommend fir flooring for those who are seeking a warm, authentically classic look and feel. Flooring must be ordered in advance an allowed sufficient time to acclimatize to your home before installing, particularly in warm indoor temperatures. Once in, floors will require sanding and finishing of your choice. Make sure you have decided on how to finish as well so that you have all the tools and materials ready.
We are happy to connect you with flooring installers or check our service directory.
Flooring is best nailed down (using a flooring stapler). Please check the moisture levels of the house (ambient), the subfloor, and the flooring itself to ensure they are within a percent or two of each other. Flooring will expand and contract with fluctuating humidity levels so its best to install your floor once the house has stabilized (especially in the case of a new build where mudding and painting can create 'wet' conditions temporarily)
Once the floor is down, sand and finish as desired.
