Subflooring is the structural support flooring below finished flooring that is held up by flooring joists. Typically, subflooring is composed of durable plywood or concrete. Depending on your specific needs and situation, it may be in your best interest to replace your current subflooring, before installing new hardwood floors.
Replacement of this flooring will heavily depend on its current condition, because if you are conducting a remodel, and your subflooring is excessively damaged, you will need to replace it to ensure proper installation of the finished floor. If your subfloor is compromised and finished floors are still installed, this can result in costly damages in the future and poor quality hardwood flooring.
There are many considerations for subflooring when you choose hardwood flooring installation for your home or business. Hardwood flooring installation in new construction requires a different technical approach in contrast to hardwood floor installation in older or existing buildings. For any hardwood flooring installation process, a thorough subfloor inspection is necessary.
We need to ensure that your subflooring is sound, clean, level and moisture free. Our contractors will first inspect your subflooring, then clean it thoroughly. Then they will replace any compromised subflooring, and check to ensure it is completely level. Sections of subflooring that are not level will be sanded down as needed. Next, we will check the moisture level of the subflooring using moisture detection equipment. Once the subfloor is in the appropriate condition, we will begin hardwood floor installation.
