Despite the prevalence of do-it-yourselfers, it's important to hire a certified professional like San Jose Hardwood Floors for carpet and hardwood floor installation for two reasons:

  • If the floors are installed incorrectly the wood can have more problems with expansion and contraction.

Sub-Floor Preparation


What kind of shape is your sub-floor in? Before installing your new floors, we can help with sub-floor leveling using our specialized equipment and team of highly trained experts. We can take important steps like grinding and prepping your sub-floor before installation, add a membrane to protect the floor from moisture and level the wood or concrete below your new floor.

Why is Sub-Floor Leveling Important?

It's extremely important to prepare the sub-floor correctly for a couple of reasons. The moisture membrane and sub-floor leveling play a vital role in making sure your floor is level. Without both of these steps, your floors are more likely to expand and contract due to moisture. For wood, this can break the tongue and groove when the floor expands, turning your beautiful hardwood floors into an uneven, hazardous surface that is costly to fix.

Are you assuming the warranty will cover sub-floor leveling? Think again. To keep the warranty valid, your floors need to be installed properly by a certified professional. If the sub-floor isn't properly prepared according to the technical specifications, the manufacturer will void the warranty completely.

The good news is you have a lot of options! Before you hire a flooring contractor, make sure you ask to see their certifications. For example, our entire staff, including owner Butch Kirk, takes the time to stay up-to-date on the latest flooring news and techniques with ongoing education opportunities both on- and off-site. All of us on the San Jose Hardwood Floors team are also certified in most manufacturer installation guides and practices including carpet, vinyl and hardwood floors (both unfinished and prefinished), which includes proper sub-floor leveling methods.
