Why Can’t I Install Hardwood Floors Myself?

Although some may think hardwood floor installation is easy, it is not. It is an extremely complicated process, and in certain instances, it can add an extra layer of difficulty. Here are a few reasons why we are against installing hardwood floors yourselves.

The raw materials aren’t as easy to replace if you make a mistake

The raw materials needed for hardwood floors cost a lot of money. This means that if you did try and do it yourself and run into a mistake, it can turn out extremely expensive.

You need special tools

Many power hand tools are needed for a successful installation of hardwood floors. Just to give you an idea, here are some tools that are required:

o   Saws

o   Hygrometers

o   Air compressors

o   Flooring level tools

o   Sanders

o   Buffers

o   Nail guns

o   Etc.

This is just a basic list of required tools. In the end, you probably won’t be saving any money at all in the long run if you decide to do it yourself.

Knowledge is needed

If you have no prior knowledge of hardwood floor or installation, then you are likely to make a mistake along the way.

It’s a back breaker

Installing hardwood floors can ruin your knees if installed yourself!
