We use the industry’s best tools on the market for installation, sanding, and coating — Festool, Bona, and Loba. We believe a craftsman’s tools make a huge impact on quality. That’s why we use the best. 

We can’t wait to embark on your floor journey with you! Let’s find the perfect hardwood floor combination that will compliment your Kansas City home for generations to come.

Install Types

Unfinished Installation

The term “unfinished” can be a bit misleading. Simply put, an unfinished installation means we are installing raw “unfinished” wood in your home that we will sand, stain, and coat with a water-based polyurethane finish — fully finishing your floor. 

This type of installation allows you to be as creative as you want. From various wood species, stain colors, and finishes, the options are endless, and we are here to help you make the best choice for you. After our dustless sanding process, we will provide samples directly on your floor so you can see the beautiful differences in color — watching your wood grain come to life — to find the stain and finish that best fits your home and style.

Pre-finished Installation

Pre-finished installations are a beautiful, durable, and fast way to bring hardwood floors into your Kansas City home. Pre-finished floors offer various options that will guarantee we find the perfect style for your home. This type of flooring is produced in two specific ways — engineered and solid wood. 

Engineered flooring is made up of various wood-composite layers, where the top layer is solid wood. This type of floor is great if you are on a tight budget and will provide a beautiful, high-quality foundation for years and years.

Solid wood pre-finished floors are just as they sound — solid wood! Each board is manufactured individually at the factory, and every piece is completely finished prior to installation. A pre-finished, solid wood floor is excellent when you want to know exactly what the floor will look like prior to installation. It also allows you to know how the floor will look with your cabinets, furniture, wall color, etc. before we even get started.

Installation At-A-Glance — What to Expect

Prep the Room

Before the installation, all furniture will be cleared from the room(s), including the removal of appliances, depending on the room. We will also remove all the existing base shoe in the room.

Prep the Sub-floor

The plywood that sits under your hardwood floor needs to be level and in tip-top shape, however, it often needs some TLC. We will reinforce “squeaks” by screwing down edges and leveling areas with a specific leveler or sanding if need be.

Dustless Sanding

We use the most advanced sanding equipment to make sanding your floor as dustless as possible. Our state-of-the-art vacuum systems with air-tight hoses ensure that dust will not invade your home or air ducts. We complete multiple sanding passes on the entirety of your floor, creating the perfect canvas for staining and coating. 

Custom Staining

We have the ability to create custom stain combinations that are endless — allowing you to pick the perfect floor color to complement your space and test it before your final decision. Once stained, we will install the base shoe. 

Three-coat Finish

Lastly, we complete your floor with a three-coat finish from Loba. This water-based finished from Germany is 90 years in the making and guarantees the best protection for your floor. After the first two coats, we do a very light sand to avoid any last imperfections. After the third coat, you will be able to walk on your floor within hours! However, there are a few rules when it comes to rugs and furniture. We recommend waiting two days before moving furniture back onto the floor and seven days for area rugs.
