Solid wood flooring

Solid Wood Flooring In Nanaimo, BC.

To achieve a real wood floor we recommend raw site finished hardwood flooring. Typically 3/4 inch(19mm) thick, solid wood floors are permanently fixed to a level subfloor such as plywood. Solid hardwood floors can be directly fixed to concrete sub floors with adhesives. Once installed, we finely sand and polish the wood floor then apply a floor finishing system that can be customised to suit individual preferences. Site finished wood floors can be customised using stains, effects and sealers creating a unique look for both residential homes and commercial properties. Hardwood floors are guaranteed up to a life time and can be sanded and refinished several times.

Engineered Wood Flooring In Nanaimo, BC.

Manufactured using layers of wood glued together with the grain alternating and a hardwood veneer on top. These floors are eco-friendly, available in many species, and can be installed in areas that solid wood floors are not recommended. Although it may be possible to recoat engineered wood floors with 2mm(2/16 inches) we recommend our range of 4mm veneer engineered wood flooring that can be sanded and refinished.

LVP and laminate Flooring In Nanaimo, BC.

In situations where solid and engineered wood flooring cannot be installed, we recommend either LVP or laminate flooring as a quality and affordable solution for a hardwood look. Unlike solid wood flooring, LVP (as well as other waterpoof laminate flooring) can be installed below grade areas. Vinyl plank floors and other laminate floors are a cost effective, real wood look alternative to other solid and engineered wood flooring alternatives in Nanaimo, BC.

What if my floor is unlevel?

One of the most important and often overlooked factors when choosing a new floor is if the existing subfloor is suitable. A sub-floor is the substrate that your new floors will be installed over, and it can be either concrete or wood. If choosing to install new flooring on these subfloors, one of many factors to consider is whether it is flat enough for the proposed flooring to be installed over it. If the floor is uneven, a professional must correct this before installation. Manufacturers of solid, engineered LVP, and other floating floors will not warranty their products when laid over an uneven surface. 

If you would like more information on whether your floor is suitable for installing your selected flooring, please contact us for an online estimate.

Wood floor cost?


 The cost to install a new wood floor will vary depending on the product, size of the area, and any extras such as underlay, trims and nosing. Vancouver Island Floor Finishing offer free online estimates for supply and installation when supplied with a floor plan or room measurements . If you know the type of wood flooring that you would like installed? Please contact us for a comparable price.

Solid wood floors including prefinished solid wood floors are the most expensive wood flooring option as they require an experienced professional to install correctly. Moisture and humidity readings must be stabilised prior to being installed. Solid wood floors that are site finished are a premium product that we specialise in. These floors provide a true hardwood floor look and feel which will last a lifetime.

A real wood floor?

A real wooden floor look can be achieved in any situation. The best wood flooring is solid hardwood as it is fixed to the underlaying subfloor and finished on site. In areas that are below grade or subjected to higher levels of moisture and humidity such as basements, we suggest installing a floating engineered floor, LVP or laminate flooring. For a cost effective wood floor look, vinyl plank flooring may be a suitable option? LVP and laminate floors can be a durable, water proof solution in situations where real wood floors cannot be installed.

How long do wood floors last?

Vancouver Island Floor Finishing installations are performed to manufacturer guidelines. Some of our suppliers offer 35 year guarantees! This means as long as installation guidelines are followed, your wooden floor will perform as intended for many years. We always recommend a site or factory prefinished solid wood floor. Solid or engineered wood floors(with a 4mm wood floor vaneer) are permanently fixed to the subfloor and can be sanded and refinished multiple times.
