We will help you learn how to install your wood floors without having to replace them frequently due to damages caused by water.

How can you make it work?

Wood is a very absorbent material and they might not be the first option for bathrooms but you can make it work. Here are some tips that you can consider to protect your wood floor from getting damaged by the excessive water that hits the floors in the bathroom. 

The first step after installing your wood floors is to apply a powerful and resistant sealant. The most recommended sealant is the one that is based on polyurethane. It will protect your wood and avoid absorbing excess water that can fall on your wood floor from the bath, shower, or sink. This will give you an opportunity to dry the floor and prevent any damage from being made. 

Second, make sure that you choose the right sealant. There are several types and you need one that are made for spaces inside your home that have lots of contact with water such as your bathroom. Other sealants won’t protect your wood floor well enough such as marine sealants or external use sealants. Read the label carefully and make sure it is the right one. 

Be Careful with Cracks in your Wood Floor

Make sure you spot any cracks on your wood floor to prevent water from passing through the cracks damaging your wood floor. The sealant only protects the top part of your word floor, it doesn’t protect the sides or bottom. So it is necessary to pass several coats of sealant over the cracks to make a powerful coat. This requires patience and dedication but it will be completely worth it. You will avoid damages to your wood floor and you won’t have to spend lots of money replacing it frequently.

Hi my name is Jeremy Maher. My wife, 2 kids and I went through Contractor Nightmares for 3 years straight. Contractors, increased the price, showed up late or not at all, made a mess of our house, didn't respect our home, made our house unsafe for our children, and created insane arguments. If you're interested to learn how I teamed up with 2 brothers and how you can avoid these contractor nightmares, check out Our Story
