Miami Carpet and Tile has been installing solid hardwood flooring in the Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, and Boca Raton, FL areas since 1992. Originally, most hardwood flooring in south Florida was limited to installation during new construction. Traditionally, hardwood was best installed over wood joists. However, it is now possible to install true hardwood flooring over the typical cement slab foundation without expensive underlayment.
No other flooring offers the warmth, beauty, and value of wood. One of the main benefits of solid hardwood flooring offers is the fact that it can last a lifetime. It is not unusual for hardwood floors to last from one generation to the next. This is one of the most common reasons why solid hardwood flooring is often chosen over that of engineered hardwood flooring. Many people highly appreciate the fact that solid hardwood floors can be sanded down many times over to expose their original value. Solid hardwood flooring is a clear example of being eco-friendly.
In the old days, hardwood floors needed to be nailed or glued to the subfloor. While this was common in the northern states, it was not practical to build a subfloor over the concrete slab found in most Florida homes. With today's new and improved methods of joining the wood planks together, Miami Carpet and Tile can now install your floating floor right over your existing floor or cement slab. With the new techniques now available, hardwood flooring is making dramatic inroads into the fashion scene. For more information regarding floating hardwood floors see your design consultants at Miami Carpet and Tile.
Today's hardwood floors are easy to maintain. Most of the hardwoods featured by Miami Carpet and Tile feature new technology which minimizes stains and scuff marks. All that is needed is a little regular cleaning with occasional use of a professional wood floor cleaning product plus sweeping and/or vacuuming. The complete Mohawk wood care product line is available through Miami Carpet and Tile.
Wood floors are ecologically friendly. Since it is a natural resource, wood is both renewable and recyclable. Many of yesteryear’s old wood ships , warehouses, barns, and other structures often find a second life in wood flooring. And, because wood does not collect dust and other allergens, many leading health associations agree that wood floors are the perfect choice for a healthy home.
