INSTALLATION

Flesher Floors is a full service hardwood flooring, laminate flooring, engineered flooring company and LVP flooring company. We can install any wood flooring product on the market in your home. Below are just a few examples of what we do.

Installation of Laminate 

Flooring

Laminate flooring is made up of a wood composite pressed together at high temperatures. Then, an image of wood is placed over top to create the laminate flooring product.  Application for this flooring is a snap together floating floor and does not require nailing or gluing. 


  • This product is generally less expensive than real wood, so if you are on a budget it may be a great option. 
  • Laminate flooring is a great option for areas without a subfloor or that tend to be damper, like basements. 
  • Laminate wood flooring is a bit more durable than real wood floors because it resists moisture, scratches and other wear and tear. 
  • Laminate flooring cannot be refinished. If you want to change the color down the road, they will have to be completely replaced. 
  • Repair of laminate floors not as easy as real wood floors. Individual boards can potentially be replaced, but even if you still have the original floor, age and fading may play a part in matching. 
  • Laminates do not add as much value to your home as solid wood floors. 

Installation of Engineered Flooring

Engineered wood flooring is a layered product made up of an actual thin layer of hardwood on the top of layers of plywood.  Application for engineered flooring can be nail down,  staple down or glue down depending on what type of sub-floor is in your home. This product can be unfinished or pre-finished.  

  • Engineered floors are less expensive than real wood but more expensive than laminate flooring. 
  • The prefinished engineered floors are a bit more durable than real unfinished wood. They resist scratches and other wear and tear. 
  • Engineered wood flooring can be refinished BUT usually only about once over their lifetime. The thin layer of wood or "wear layer" is very thin and can be sanded through if not careful.  
  • Repair of engineered floors can be accomplished but is not easy.  Boards can be replaced, but age might be a factor in matching. A board can be sanded, but matching can be tricky if the engineered floors are pre-finished.  
  • While real hardwoods have the best resale value of any flooring, engineered floors are appealing, as well. 

Installation of Solid Wood Flooring

Solid wood floors are just that ... solid wood.  Each board is milled from a single piece of lumber with no separate layers.  Application for solid wood flooring can be nail down or glue down depending on what type of sub-floor is in your home. This product can be unfinished or pre-finished and comes in several grades. 

  • Real wood floors tend to be more of an investment initially but can last a lifetime in any home.  
  • Unfinished solid wood floors finished on site in your home with endless stain color options to choose from.  Prefinished solid wood floors are factory finished and simply installed once they get to your home. 
  • Both solid pre-finished and unfinished floors can be refinished multiple times over the years whether you just want a color change or there is damage. 
  • Repair of solid wood floors is much more likely than with the other types of flooring.  If the damage is minimal, a small area can be repaired.  Extensive damage may require sanding the entire room.   
  • Real hardwood floors add value to any home and makes it easier to sell.
