Need a good wood floor installation person near Winchester, TN 37398

I am wanting to find a good, experienced wood floor installation professional. My house is an older home and definitely need someone who has seen it all! I don't know what we may encounter....if we're lucky, we may find original floors in decent, or at least workable shape.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Given what you say, might be bet to remove the existing flooring first, because till it comes up you will not know if refinishable or not - either to "like new" condition or to a new finish on a "distressed look" floor.

I would not commit to a new flooring job up front - because if you find the underlying flooring is usuable (and maybe only in some rooms or areas) you would be stuck in a contract for new flooring overlay (or tearup and replacement) which you do not want.

Flooring - Sales/Installation/Repair is of course the Search the List category to find vendors to bid this job.

Oh - and if you think there may be good hardwood underneath (you can probably pull up a few transition strips at doorways to see if hardwood or not in different areas), I would have a hardwood flooring restoration expert pull up the existing flooring over it - because a handyman or such may cause damage to the underlying floor in the process. Expert flooring guys know how to remove fasteners/tack strips/etc with minimal damageto the underlying material.
