  5. Installing a solid wood floor is not a difficult process, but it does require some knowledge and careful planning. Wood flooring should be installed on a clean, level surface. Once the subfloor is prepared, the installation can begin. Start by pre-finishing the boards. This is accomplished by sanding the boards to remove any loose debris, then staining or painting the boards to protect them from water damage. Once the boards are pre-finished, lay them in place, staggering the joints between the boards. Secure the boards with nails or screws, and cover the seams with caulking. Finally, buff the floor with a commercial-grade floor buffer to ensure a smooth finish.

    Do you want to install a new floor in your home? To install a new floor, you will need to measure the space you want to cover and purchase the appropriate amount of flooring. You will also need to find a flat, dry surface that is big enough to work on. Once you have your supplies, you can start installing your new floor. Start by laying out the flooring on the floor. You will want to overlap the boards at least 3 inches so that the seams are not visible. Then, use a rubber mallet to tap the boards together and make sure they are tight. You can also nail the boards together if you prefer. Measure the distance between each board and mark it with a pencil. Use a drill to make pilot holes for the nails, then hammer in the nails to secure the boards together. When you are finished installing your new floor, you will want to finish the edges by adding a trim board. This will cover up any gaps in the flooring and create a clean look.
