Hardwood Floors Installation in Wisconsin

Why choose Hardwood Floors?

Hardwood floors installed in homes provide an undeniable value and timeless elegance. With options ranging from styles, colors, hardwood species, textures, widths and finishes the variety of hardwood floors to choose from is endless. Whether you are going for an antique look or a more contemporary feel hardwood flooring is the ideal option for your home. Featuring a lifespan that is nearly unrivaled hardwood floorings not only add value to a home but also to stand up to heavy traffic and lots of situations that other floorings may not be able to withstand.

Benefits of Hardwood Floors

Hardwood flooring is a great way to bring beauty to any space, but the hardwood floors installed in your home could have a significant impact on your air quality. Because hardwoods are made from natural materials, so they don’t trap dust or animal dander like carpets. Not only is hardwood more visually pleasing than carpet, but it can also actually improve the indoor air you and your family are breathing. In addition to better indoor air, hardwood floors are durable and can withstand heavy foot traffic—both everyday family life and occasional parties with guests. Even if hardwood floors eventually show wear (which is normal!), they can be sanded down and stained consistently every few years during refinishing jobs which will extend their longevity even further.

Hardwood Floors Cost in Wisconsin

Whether it is domestic or exotic hardwood flooring, the cost of having it installed can vary significantly depending on the size and complexity of your project. For example, if you are installing hardwood floors in a small room, the cost is likely to be much lower than if you are installing floors in an expansive living space. Generally speaking, hardwood floors installed by a professional ranges anywhere from $12 to $22 per square foot and can be slightly more expensive for luxurious species like mahogany or walnut. Additionally, consider the cost of finishing materials such as stains, sealants and precision machinery which may increase your hardwood floors cost even further.

Hardwood Floor Maintenance

Taking care of hardwood flooring can be a daunting task for many homeowners, especially since it can cost more than other types of flooring. To ensure your newly installed hardwood floors remain in great condition and last for years to come, there are a few simple preventative measures you can take. First and foremost, sweep or vacuum the floor weekly to remove dust and dirt build-up that could become scratched into the surface over time. Furthermore, mopping the hardwood with mild soap mixed with water will help keep the floor clean while maintaining its protective coat. Lastly, adding felt protectors on furniture legs is essential in order to reduce drag marks and dents along your hardwood floors’ surfaces. By following these simple maintenance steps for hardwood floors, you will ensure that your hardwood lasts for as long as possible without compromising its quality or beauty.

Frequently Asked Questions​

Have a concrete coating-related question? We have the answer. Check out these FAQs and give us a call today for more information!

At Twisted Floors, we feel that HONESTY is the BEST policy. We use BOTH Polyurea and Epoxy Coatings. A polyurea /polyaspartic flooring coating system does have its benefits but some factors need to be considered when choosing which coating is best for your concrete. Many companies will tell you they primarily use polyurea over epoxy because it’s the best.

We believe that one size/one coating does not fit all concrete. One factor to consider and understand when choosing your coating is that not all concrete cures the same. It differs nationwide and leads to variations in concrete porosity and moisture transmission.

Polyurea coatings are not the best systems to install over highly porous concrete with high moisture transmission. Why? Because polyurea coatings are not moisture mitigating! Moisture transmitting through the concrete gets trapped under the coating and causes it to delaminate and peel.

At Twisted Floors, we select the proper coating type for your floor by testing the moisture and porosity of all concrete before coating to ensure that the right coating system is installed. We test the moisture content in your concrete on the day of the estimate and we also check it BEFORE we install the coating itself. We also perform a MOHS Hardness test to see the hardness of the underlying concrete.

If the company you meet with for estimates suggests a 1-day polyurea polyaspartic without first assessing your concrete and doing a moisture test, beware. NOT all concrete will work with a polyurea coating. Always make sure the company that you choose to install your concrete coating does the appropriate tests on your concrete and has knowledge of all types of coatings and why ONE system doesn’t work for all floors. Knowledge is KEY.

All floors and floor coatings can be slippery when wet, our concrete coatings are less slippery than regular concrete.

How do you know that your floors are less slippery than concrete?

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has slip resistance requirements for floors. Concrete is around a 0.5 on the “slip meter”. OSHA requires 0.6 and our coatings are around 0.7.

We don’t promise a one-day floor system. Weather, concrete moisture levels, type of coating being used and many other factors inform us on how long a coating will take to install. We always tell our customers to plan for two days for a garage concrete coating.

We will discuss these details during your free estimate for your garage floor coating.

Summer: 24 hours after installation you can walk on the coating and you can drive on it in 48 Hours. Please don’t move anything heavy back into your garage for 72 hours.

Winter: 36 hours before you can walk on the floor and 72 hours before you can drive on the floor or move anything heavy back in.

Our professionally installed garage floor coatings are safe for use with properly designed and installed radiant heating systems. They are highly efficient in sending warmth up through your garage floor.

According to the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, “63% of all U.S. households have a garage or carport” available to them, and nothing beats working in the garage when the Wisconsin winter weather drives you inside. Of course, it is essential to have a warm garage to work or hang out in, and radiant floor heating is very popular in garages in our area.

No, as these are concrete coatings, you need to use these coatings only on concrete.

We install concrete coatings all year round, including during the winter months. Call us or contact us anytime for the coating you need!

Yes, you can use a Swiffer, a stiff broom, and simple green diluted 10:1. Just simply squeegee out the excess water when you’re done. Our concrete coatings last longer if taken care of properly. General maintenance like on any flooring helps keep your floor lasting longer and looking its best.
