This is a fantastic concentrate cleaner that I always recommend for hardwood floor cleaning. Nail Down Wood Floors/Glue Down Wood Floors- Depending on where you go, the actual hardwood installation could be as little as $3.00 per square foot, with a big box retailer being a little more. Plywood installation on Concrete- If your subfloor is a slab and you are going with naildown floors, your installer will likely need to add plywood to the subfloor. Typically, the cost is the same as installing a moisture barrier (partly because the install is the same).
If you have professional do it for you, the costs will vary according to region (in line with the cost of living in your area). Cost to Screen and coat- Otherwise known as buffing the floors and adding a top coat, general costs are around $1.25 per square foot. Floating floors will be the least expensive at $1.00-1.50 per square foot with nail down flooring being somewhere in between. Preparing for our kitchen remodel, my husband and I were looking for some inexpensive flooring that would stand up to much abuse. We left it in the kitchen for three days where it would receive the most abuse.
While shopping at Sam’s Wholesale I looked at the flooring not expecting to see anything I wanted when I saw Golden Select Laminate Flooring and it was described as being extra thick. I painted over it with Guardsman Touch-Up Pen I had on hand from Lowes or HD. I think it was Lowes. This is what makes a preferred flooring choice since many numbers of trees are saved the moment one considers the bamboo. It looks similar to normal wooden flooring but costs far less and is suited for all weather and room types.
Bamboo floorings are manufactured from best quality bamboos and are highly resistant to insect attacks. Bamboo is said to be the symbol of auspicious luck, so you can also install bamboo flooring for bringing in fortune. Bamboo has always constituted freshness, sturdiness, natural charm, and purity for several decades. Bamboo planks are subjected to several coatings of scratch proof and non-abrasive compounds to present sturdiness and long life. Bamboo flooring is resistant to any damage by water, stains, bending or twisting out of shape as compared to other wooden materials.
Deterioration of a bamboo floor is caused by very small particles of sand and dust which are carried in through the footwear that people wear. This refuse when treaded upon could dig into the finishing of the floor causing depressions, damage or just scratches damaging the look of the flooring. Finally you should remember that, while washing you should always use a damp yet dry wash to extend the life of the flooring material.
