All About Hickory Floor Installation

Why Hickory Wood Floors Are A Great Choice For Your Home? 

There are several reasons why Hickory wood floors make a great choice for your home. Hickory is a beautiful & strong hardwood that is perfect for high-traffic areas. It is also one of the most durable woods available, making it a great choice for families with children. 

Hickory floors are also easy to care for and can be stained and sealed to match any decor. Hickory is a fantastic way to add value to your home & provide a pleasant flooring option for you and your family.

Read these tips to learn how we install your new hickory flooring!

  • Clean The Floor

Before we install the new hickory floors, we make sure the floor is clean. We sweep your existing floors thoroughly to clear any dust or dirt that may interfere with the installation process. 

If your baseboards are dirty, we use a gentle cleanser or water & vinegar solution to clean them as well.

  • The Hickory Flooring Set Up

Our experts begin the installation process by setting up your new hickory flooring. Hickory planks are sold in 4′ sections or 8′ sections, allowing us to customize the size of your floors as desired. 

Hickory wood can be installed as a floating floor with a locking mechanism, meaning that it’s not necessary to secure each piece into the subfloor. It is a hard, durable material that can be installed without an underlayment to provide a flat, even surface.

  • Applying Adhesive To Hickory Flooring

Before installing your hickory planks, we apply adhesive to each plank & allow it to dry (typically 24 hours) before installing.

  • Start Of The Hickory Floor Installation

We then install your first row of hickory flooring, ensuring that it’s lined up against a wall to function as a guide for the remaining rows. 

Our experts pay special attention to whether planks need to be rotated so that all ends & sides are lined up evenly with adjacent pieces. 

Hickory wood has the unique ability to be cut in any direction, allowing us to fit planks into difficult corners or spaces without having to worry about gaps or new cuts.

  • Use Of Hickory Molding To Finish Off Floors

Once your hickory floors have been installed, molding is used along the edge of your floors for a finished look, or it can be installed directly on top of hickory floors to cover gaps or holes that may have occurred during installation.
