Installing a new wood floor is a big decision that adds value to your house that you won’t get with other types of floor. Our National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) certified wood floor installers follow a comprehensive checklist to ensure your wood flooring is installed correctly.
After you’ve chosen your desired product, we will promptly order it and ensure delivery 7-10 days prior to the scheduled installation date. This crucial step allows your new floors to properly acclimate to your home’s environment (learn more about hardwood acclimation at https://kimminaufloors.com/what-is-hardwood-acclimation/). Once the wood has acclimated, we begin by removing your existing floor covering and preparing the subfloor for the new hardwood (details on wood subfloor preparation at https://kimminaufloors.com/wood-subfloor-preparation-explained/). These initial stages are the most critical but often overlooked or undervalued by others in the industry. Next, our certified employees expertly install your new floor, including any required trim moldings. At Kimminau Floors, we offer a comprehensive turnkey experience, which includes moving all furniture, performing painting touch-ups, and providing post-construction cleaning, ensuring your space is left as clean or even cleaner than before the installation process began.
The installation time (learn more at https://kimminaufloors.com/how-long-will-my-hardwood-project-take/) varies based on factors like the amount of flooring needed and the condition of the subfloor. However, our skilled team typically completes most installations within 2-5 days. This efficient turnaround allows you to resume your daily routine quickly, while enjoying the beauty of your impressive wood flooring.
No, you don’t need to leave your house. We may make a bit of noise due to our wood flooring tools, but you are able to stay in your own home and even walk on the flooring between most days/evenings.
Installing hardwood planks on your staircase is indeed possible, but we highly recommend enlisting the expertise of professionals like Kimminau Floors. Our team ensures that the staircase meets code requirements and maintains the necessary stability to support the planks securely. Staircase installations are significantly more intricate than standard hardwood floor installations, and the precision provided by professionals can make a tremendous difference in the final outcome.

Hardwood flooring is a worthwhile investment of both time and money, offering a timeless and natural appeal that complements any home decor. Its versatility makes it a perfect fit for any design style. Moreover, hardwood floors can significantly increase your home’s return on investment, with an average ROI of 106%. Few other floor coverings can boast a lifespan of 100+ years, making hardwood floors a durable and long-lasting choice for your home.
With proper maintenance, wood flooring can maintain its beauty and functionality for an impressive 20 to 30 years without needing refinishing. And even after this time, it can be easily refinished up to six or seven times during its lifespan, ensuring its enduring durability and longevity. Trust in the lasting appeal and resilience of a well-cared-for wood floor.
Hardwood flooring increases a home’s value and salability. Its warm aesthetic makes it attractive for buyers and a wise investment for homeowners.
To maintain the beauty and longevity of newly refinished hardwood floors, it is important to establish a regular maintenance routine which includes placing protective mats, keeping pet claws trimmed, avoiding wearing high heels/sports cleats, and regularly sweeping/vacuuming. Equally helpful is to place walk-off mats in entryways, avoid exposure to direct sunlight, and use a humidifier throughout the winter months.
Applying the wrong cleaning products to your floor will void our warranty, reduce its life, and prevent us from being able to successfully apply a maintenance coat in the future, so please contact us when you run out of solutions.
