The next product in the Impressions hardwood flooring line is a top selling 1/2” thick engineered hardwood called the Salem Series. The Salem series features a Perma-Finish Commercial Grade Water Based finish and is stocked with only Prime Select Grade oak products. The Salem Series has Red Oak & Brazilian Cherry as species available to the name and can be installed below, above & on grade. The Salem Series is an engineered hardwood floor with a hardwood base panel & 2mm thick sawn face wear layer for Oaks & 1.4mm for the Brazilian cherry. The Perma-Finish, being that it is a water base, allows the true coloring of the grain to show through and shine and is added protection against scratching. This product features boards of 1'-4' and an average board length of 31” making it a longer plank than most engineered wood flooring on today's market. The edges on this product are a 4-sided micro bevel and prevent chipping at the edges while defining the edge of each board. This environmentally friendly hardwood leaves a smaller carbon footprint on the planet due to less waste & less use of domestic trees in the creation of this floor. This is a very thick engineered hardwood and may be sanded and recoated many times over the life of this floor and will last many years. This product is only available in 3” widths for both the Oaks & Brazilian cherry floor. This product can be easily installed either by Glue, Nail or Staple down. The Brazilian Cherry is Lacey Act Compliant being harvested from forests that are used solely for hardwood flooring purposes.
Although the nail down method of installing hardwood floor panels is pretty simple, it should still be done carefully as the hardwood floor has to endure for many years in whatever form you complete it. All of the furniture and obstacles that can be removed from the room should be removed while you install your hardwood floor panels. This is true even if it requires manual dismantling and reassembly. For those fixtures build into the floor of the room, you'll just have to panel around them. It's not the easiest way to go, but you have to do what you have to do to get your hardwood floor installed. If you have door sills, an old hardwood floor, baseboards, or carpet, remove them before you begin as well. If the surface beneath where you will be flooring is cement or any other lumpy material, use a felt floor liner to cover this surface. Then install a plywood sub-floor over it. Once laid, you should be ready to begin installing the hardwood floor.
