Hardwood Flooring Installation in Staten Island & New Jersey Backed By Science

We Don’t “Lay & Pray.”
Our Approach is Measured, Analytical & Mathematical.

Getting the perfect hardwood flooring in Staten Island & New Jersey is NOT as simple as selecting a color and wood species you like. In a way, it’s not so much YOU choosing the hardwood floor… but the hardwood floor choosing YOU.

Did you know you can’t install solid hardwood in a basement or over concrete? Or that how often you run your air conditioner determines the type of hardwood you can have in your home? Or that having kids or pets automatically eliminates about 40% of your hardwood options? (Unless you REALLY like scratches, nicks, and scuffs.)

And just as many considerations must go into the actual installation. Hardwood floors have to acclimate to your home in a very specific set of conditions before they can be correctly installed. If the wood doesn’t reach perfect equilibrium with the humidity in your home, your hardwood-flooring project will be a bust before the contractor lays the firstplank.

Long story short: Choosing the right hardwood flooring, and the right contractor to install it, is surprisingly complex. Fortunately, The Men With Tools is the company with the knowledge, skill, and resources to help you get it RIGHT – the first time.

We’ve put the science back in hardwood flooring installation.Unlike other Staten Island and New Jersey hardwood flooring companies, we don’t just have you pick out the floor you think looks nice and then install it.We perform a methodical Needs Analysis that includes a relative-humidity reading, lifestyle assessment, and meticulous evaluation of the project area. We then review our findings with you to determine the best hardwood flooring options for your home.

Getting hardwood floors in Staten Island & New Jersey has never been so easy.

Putting The Science Back In Hardwood Flooring

More so than just about any home-improvement project, hardwood flooring requires a lot of consideration and pre-planning. Yet many hardwood flooring contractors in Staten Island and New Jersey simply tell their customers, “Pick out whatever you want, and we’ll install it.”

That’s a recipe for hardwood-flooring failure. Certain kinds of subfloor and conditions aren’t right for hardwood. Example: If you install hardwood flooring in a humid room, it WILL bow, buckle, and develop gaps. Similarly, you can expect rapid wear and tear if you install a softer wood in a high-traffic, high-use area like a child’s bedroom or a kitchen.

This is why we go to painstaking lengths during the selection process. While other companies “lay and pray,” we use actual hard science to determine the exact right hardwood floor for your home. To make sure everything is perfect before we install a single plank, we perform exhaustive research and testing. Our approach is methodical, analytical, and measured because that’s the only way to make sure you’re getting the proper floor for your needs.

Here is what our “Scientific Method” involves…

Subfloor & Site-Condition Analysis

We evaluate the subfloor and project area to determine which type of flooring is suitable. This includes checking the relative humidity in your home with a hygrometer and using a special moisture meter to measure the water content in the subfloor. By doing this, we’re able to pinpoint which floors are suitable for your home – and eliminate all the ones that aren’t.

Lifestyle Assessment

To determine the best flooring for your home, we have to get a little nosy. Our Lifestyle Assessment allows us to gauge which flooring works best for YOUR specific needs. Here are some sample questions:

  • Do you have children?
  • Do you have pets?
  • How often do you run your air conditioner in the summer, and at what temperature?
  • How often do you run your heating system in the winter?
  • How much activity takes place in the area in which you want hardwood flooring?

Your answers make ALL the difference, which is why we do a little digging into your homelife.

Proper Acclimation

Before installation, it’s imperative that the hardwood floor acclimates to the conditions of your home. There must be equilibrium between the moisture content of the floor and the moisture in your home; the ideal conditions for hardwood flooring are as close to 40% relative humidity as possible.

To achieve equilibrium, hardwood floors must “breathe” and adapt to their new environment for one to four weeks before installation. We prepare your hardwood floors for proper acclimation and test them for equilibrium to ensure they’re in the appropriate condition for installation.

American-Made Floors ONLY

We source hardwood exclusively from American manufacturers. American hardwood flooring companies utilize the best sustainable practices and adhere to the strictest compliances regarding chemical usage in their products. This makes American hardwood the greenest and safest on the market.

What’s more, American hardwood is versatile, beautiful, and unique. Many types of hardwood in America can’t be found anywhere else on the planet. As a result, American hardwood is in the highest demand not just in the USA, but all over the world.

American manufacturers make the most of the exceptional hardwood resources this country offers. They treat American hardwood with the respect it deserves by utilizing advanced manufacturing practices to maximize its potential. The result is premium hardwood flooring that’s beautiful and built to last.

Staten Island & New Jersey’s Only Lifetime Guarantee On Hardwood-Floor Installation

There are three ways a hardwood floor can fail…

  1. Before installation, if the moisture content in the flooring is unsuitable.
  2. During installation, if the contractor utilizes improper installation.
  3. After installation, if the homeowner fails to maintain the floors properly.

To prevent the third instance, we provide you with a comprehensive guide to caring for your hardwood floors. For the first two instances, we offer a Lifetime Warranty on our installation.

Our science-based approach and 63-Point Installation Process means we RARELY make a mistake. But in the small chance we do, we perform the necessary repair or replacement completely FREE of charge – now and forever.

You won’t find another contractor that offers a similar lifetime warranty on hardwood floors (the best you’ll get is one or two years, tops). That’s because we’re the only hardwood flooring company that takes the time to document every part of your project in detail.

Here’s how it works: Once we perform our pre-installation relative-humidity and moisture tests, we document our findings. We review this document with you, have both parties sign it, and keep it on file. Should you experience an issue with your floors, we have records on hand that provide us with the necessary information to take the proper course of action. Bottom line: Our due diligence on the front end protects you for LIFE on the back end.
