Very popular with engineered hardwood and solid hardwood flooring installation in Toronto, this method requires the subfloor to either be made of plywood or waferboard/OSB. In a typical nail-down procedure, floor planks are attached to the subfloor using a wood flooring nailer and mallet. In the staple-down method, a hardwood flooring stapler drives the staples through the planks into the subfloor.
This is a common method for installing hardwood and engineered wooden planks over concrete subfloor. Since the process involves attaching the floor to the subfloor (using a special adhesive), preparing the latter is crucial. Only skilled flooring professionals can help you with the details of this installation process.
One of the easiest and most stable installation methods, floating doesn’t involve the subfloor whatsoever. Floor planks fit or click together through grooves and tongues (similar to a jigsaw puzzle), without any gluing or nailing. While the floating method is not meant for hardwood flooring installation, it is perfectly suitable for laminate, vinyl, and engineered hardwood floors.

Avoid installing hardwood floors in moisture-prone areas like bathrooms, kitchens and basements.
Hardwood can be installed in almost any room, with a few notable exceptions. A full bathroom or kitchen isn't the best place for wood due to their high moisture levels. While we can (and will) install hardwood flooring in these rooms, the potential risk of water damage is higher.
Acclimation times vary by hardwood species, but usually at least three days.
Let the flooring acclimate for three to seven days, with boxes opened and laid flat in the room where the flooring is to be installed. If you are in an area with high humidity, you may need to install some humidity controls like a humidifier or dehumidifier.
This depends on a few factors.
Cost will depend on the area being floored, the complexity of the installation, and the type of wood being used. At Amazon Hardwood, we only use top-quality hardwood installed by highly skilled flooring professionals.
Use the manufacturer’s recommended cleaner.
For stubborn stains, apply the manufacturer’s recommended cleaner to a soft cloth and mop the desired area. Avoid scraping or using harsh chemicals as these may leave scratches and stains. Do not use wax-based cleaners.
