Your Hardwood Floors Can Last A Lifetime

Posted by - nynj-flooring

When selecting a flooring type for your home, you should know that you have many options available. You are able to select from a vast number of materials from laminate to carpet to tile and hardwood flooring. To each type of material used, there are pro’s and con’s. Some materials are more versatile than others and some last longer than others however no matter which way you opt to go, NYNJ Flooring has the solution to your problem.


One of the many reasons that people opt to have hardwood flooring installed into their homes is the idea that it can last a lifetime but this is only true if the material is cared for properly. While you sit and think about the idea of installing new flooring into your home, think about this; new carpet simply means that you take up the old carpet and install new padding and carpet but your old, worn down hardwood floors can be done by simply sanding them down and staining them a whole new color. If you have stains on the wood that are caused from pets, well, that can be taken care of as well. That is why more people choose to install hardwood floors in their home. There may be more work to keeping them shiny and clean but the hardwood floors will last much longer than your typical carpeting would.

NYNJ Flooring It used to be that if your home rested on a concrete slab, you couldn’t have hardwood floors. This was because moisture could get trapped beneath the wood, leading to mildew, wood cracking, and warping. Plus, it was just too uncomfortable. But that’s not the case anymore. Advancements in wood flooring technology have made it possible for those with concrete foundations to enjoy the beauty, warmth, and easy maintenance that come with wood floors.

NYNJ Flooring can install brand-new, beautiful hardwood flooring in your home, no matter the base surface. But there are still a few special considerations. Before starting, we’ll survey the concrete and make specific accommodations to ensure your new hardwood floor is lovely and long-lasting. Here are a few things to keep in mind before getting started:

Moisture Management Is Key

As you may know, concrete holds on to moisture really well. For those who want hardwood floors, this can be a bad thing. This is because the moisture can get trapped between the concrete and the wood, leading to all sorts of problems, like mold, warped wood, and even loose floorboards. So we take moisture management very seriously. Before installing on a concrete slab, we use special temperature-control and ventilation tools to ensure the surface is 100% dry. Then we install a watertight subfloor so absolutely no moisture can get in. If you’re installing wood flooring on a new home, we require a two-month wait before starting to ensure the new concrete is completely dry.

Opt for Engineered Wood

Engineered wood is a new development and is perfect for homes with concrete foundations. Engineered wood is made of around 5 or 6 layers of plywood, topped by a plank of hardwood. The plywood serves as a barrier between the concrete and the top layer, meaning it’s harder for any moisture to come in contact with the hardwood and ruin it. Plus, engineered wood makes for a cushier floor. When you have hardwood right on top of concrete, it can be really cold and really hard on the feet and knees. Imagine standing on that or having your kids play on it! Engineered wood solves this problem, since plywood is quite soft, and is cushioned by the air between the layers.


Our company was one of the first in the tri-state area to start working on concrete slabs. This is because we value our customers and value a job well done.
