When purchasing your new hardwood floor it’s a real good idea to make sure when the job is done you have a few extra boxes left over as an insurance policy.  I have replaced many floors over the years because of a small amount of flood damage caused by a dishwasher or a washing machine that leaked.  Although the damage was limited to a small portion of the kitchen or the hallway, the entire home had to be replaced because the homeowner had no left over material from the original install.  Manufacturers are constantly changing products, colors and styles of flooring from year-to-year.  If your hardwood floor has been discontinued by the manufacturer and you cannot match the original floor you may be forced to replace hundreds of square feet because of damage to a very small area.  Having a few left over boxes of wood stored in your attic or basement could save you thousands of dollars in the future.  So when your job is done if you have very little left over  material go to your retailer and buy a couple extra boxes of wood.  This is cheap insurance for your very expensive investment.

    Elastilon has built its name and reputation with islnanlitg solid hardwoods directly over concrete floors. There is no faster, easier and trouble free way to install a solid hardwood floor but there is more to Elastilon then just solids over concrete.Engineered wooden flooring is growing in leaps and bounds and Elastilon is perfect for islnanlitg all engineered wood flooring be it a t&g system or a locking system. Remember, Elastilon is not only a installation membrane but it is a floating floor underlayment as well. It offers such benefits as: low odor and VOC free; softer to walk on; it is an excellent thermal break and it has high sound deadening capabilities; where it is in contact with the wood flooring it offers moisture resistance. (for added protection especially when there is a concern of moisture through the concrete we require the use of a vapor barrier below the Elastilon); and the list goes on!Be it solid or engineered there is no better way of islnanlitg hardwood floors on concrete

      I use a swiffer weejtt with the antibacterial solution on all my hard surface floors. Just watch if your seams are not tight that you don’t let liquid seep down into the cracks.As far as which product to go with I would ask the place you are buying the product. Do they sell both or would you have to go to two locations? You can also search the name of the product and add the word reviews at the end to see what people who have used it think.
