Revel Woods Installation Guidelines
A quick word on installation
Depending on the situation and subfloor, all of our Revel Woods floors can be nailed with cleats or staples, glued down, floated (with glue assist), or even glue assisted nail down all according to NWFA standard installation guidelines.
If the above paragraph sounded like a whole bunch of jargon, it’s a good indicator that you should not install your wood floor without professional guidance. Installation is one of the most important parts of the entire process and is usually where 95% of the most common problems with wood floors can occur. While it is absolutely possible to install wood floors yourself (if you know what you’re doing), we don’t recommend it.
Revel Woods sells only premium quality, professional grade materials, and the quality of our floors will make the installation professional’s job easier than the material typically found in a big box store. That said, no matter how high end your materials may be, installing hardwood floors still requires a level of experience and expertise that might be too much for a novice or hobbyist.
It is also important to note that while Revel Woods stands behind all of its products, we do not warranty installation errors. If your floor has a problem and the required, independent NWFA certified inspector finds that the problem was due to installation, the installer is responsible for the floor. This is just one more reason it is well worth the cost to hire an insured, reputable craftsman to install your hardwood floor.
