New Hardwood Floors Chipping



Mr. Tea

Last Updated February 22, 2016 01:09 AM

I just bought a newly built house in Maryland and have been living in it for about three months. Most of the house has hardwood flooring that for the most part looks really good. However, I've found some spots here and there throughout the house that are starting the chip.

What are my least invasive options for fixing this problem? I say least invasive because I do not want to tear up the whole peg board and replace it. I'm thinking that I could put down some wood glue and try to stain that small piece or something; If that's the solution can anyone recommend the materials I need to do that or brands of glue, etc. Or is that a bad idea? I don't want my repair job to be noticeable.

I'd agree with Ed Beal, start a warranty claim in case you start finding it all over. Otherwise yes, if you can lift the feather/chip & work some glue in there that would be great....

Hardwood floors are a beautiful addition to your home, and we’re excited to help you get your installation started. We recommend hiring a professional installation team to ensure it’s all done properly. These tips will help you prepare so everything goes smoothly on the big day.

At the Store

When purchasing your hardwood floors, ask your flooring retailer if they have professional hardwood installers on staff. If not, ask them to recommend an independent installer for your area. In most cases, the retailer will handle all the details of arranging the installation.

Be sure to ask about additional fees for things like old flooring removal and disposal, and moving larger furniture pieces.

Preparing for Installation

Aside from clearing the installation areas in your home, there are a few other ways to prepare:

Make sure your hardwood floors are delivered to your home at least two days before installation so they can acclimate to the...

The choice of flooring is one of the most basic yet important decisions a homeowner has to make when undertaking a renovation, as it underpins everything else. While there are plenty of different options, from carpet to terrazzo, one material is the acknowledged standard: hardwood.

But not all hardwood flooring is created equal, and selecting a product isn’t simply a matter of choosing a preferred color. A range of other factors can have an impact on both aesthetics and performance.

To explore the many options available, we spoke with three experts: Scott Jones, director of product management at Carlisle Wide Plank Floors; James Caroll, principal of LV Wood; and Mara Miller, partner at the AD100 firm Carrier and Company Interiors. Once you find the perfect fit for your space, you'll need to think about installation. While may choose to hire a professional to install their floors, some intrepid homeowners go the...

An example of solid wood flooring with a top coating of


Wood flooring is any product manufactured from timber that is designed for use as flooring, either structural or aesthetic. Wood is a common choice as a flooring material and can come in various styles, colors, cuts, and species. Bamboo flooring is often considered a form of wood flooring, although it is made from a grass (bamboo) rather than a timber.[1]


Hardwood flooring[edit]

Solid hardwood floors are made of planks milled from a single piece of timber. Solid hardwood floors were originally used for structural purposes, being installed perpendicular to the wooden support beams of a building known as joists or bearers. With the increased use of concrete as a subfloor in some parts of the world, engineered wood flooring has gained some popularity. However, solid wood floors are still common and popular. Solid wood floors have a thicker wear surface and can be sanded and...

Wood floors can increase your home's market value and are frequently found on a buyer's wish list. You can't go wrong with installing new hardwood floors in your home -- unless you choose the wrong wood color. Hardwood floors don't stand alone. They need to complement your walls, furnishings, cabinetry, architecture and color scheme. If you randomly choose the wood floor color you like best without considering your existing home, you'll likely be disappointed in the final result.

Visit your local wood flooring showroom. Take along a furniture throw pillow, paint chip or cabinet wood sample from the room you'll be installing wood floors. A flooring showroom can be overwhelming if you don't have these sample items to help you determine which wood colors coordinate best with them.

Choose floor samples to take home with you that complement paint chips or other items you brought to the showroom. It isn't necessary to match wood cabinets to your floor color. Instead, select...

Bamboo flooring can be made from many different species of bamboo with differing properties, but Moso bamboo is the most popular high-quality option. Harvested at its peak density at 5-6 years of age, it is harder than even maple and oak hardwoods. Engineered bamboo (also called stranded bamboo) flooring material is more durable than natural bamboo, but is highly processed from its natural state, being stripped, boiled, cut, bonded and pressed. Lighter-colored bamboo is harder than darker bamboo, as the carbonization process used to darken the wood makes it softer.

Hardwood flooring is made of natural hardwood from the lumber harvested in forest areas. The price depends on the tree. For example, the most expensive hardwood comes from mahogany, wenge, and teak. The softest hardwood used in flooring is pine, and it’s fairly inexpensive. Another option for areas prone to moisture, such as a concrete subfloor, is engineered hardwood. This consists of a...

Choosing the type of hardwood floor that best fits your space and DIY abilities is an important step in planning the installation of your new floor. Don't confuse floor type with wood variety -- we'll cover selection of wood variety in the next section.

For now, let's discuss the three main types of hardwood floors to consider.

Solid Wood Flooring

Solid wood flooring comes in three main types. Each type is available in both an unfinished and a pre-finished version. Unfinished flooring must be job-site sanded and finished after installation. Pre-finished flooring is sanded and finished at the factory -- so it only needs installation. The three main types of solid wood flooring are:

Strip flooring - This type of flooring is denoted by the thickness and width of the wood planks. Strip flooring has a set width, but the thickness can vary. Strip flooring ranges in thickness from 5/16 of an inch to 3/4 of an inch wide. It is available only in widths of 1 1/2...

Poor solid hardwood.

At one time, it was the only game in town if you wanted wood flooring. Then, simulations popped up, some better than others--engineered wood, laminate "wood" flooring, resilient tile mimicking wood, and more.

Yet as the ads like to tout, nothing quite feels like real, solid wood flooring. It's sturdy, feels substantial under foot, and maintains value.

What Is Solid Hardwood?

First, let's look at its closest cousin, engineered wood.

Engineered wood flooring--a plywood-type base topped with hardwood--is often called hardwood flooring. Flooring manufacturers like to claim this, too.

Thus the emphasis on the word solid--flooring that is hardwood from top to bottom.

Interestingly, it is not all hardwood. Soft woods abound. Even bamboo--not a wood at all--is often sold within the same category. Finally, classic tongue-and-groove is one hallmark of solid hardwood flooring.

Hardwood flooring makes a welcome addition to any home, but it can be daunting to deal with once it’s time to remove or replace it. Stripping hardwood flooring the wrong way can cost you hours of backbreaking work, leave you with an enormous mess and even cause permanent damage to your subflooring. If you decide to remove your flooring yourself, it will be worth knowing how the see the project through safely and efficiently. Start by sawing the individual boards into more manageable sections, then pull them up using a pry bar.

Installation Instructions - Hardwood and Laminate Floors
This installation guide covers the installation of hardwood moldings on glue down/nail down flooring installations and floating floor installations. Any differences in instructions between hardwood and laminate flooring will be noted in the appropriate section of this guide. Please refer to the appropriate section of the guide for the instructions that apply to your installation.

Preparation for the installation of hardwood moldings is the same as the preparation for installation of the hardwood floor. Subfloors must be flat and level.. “Highspots" should be sanded down and “lowspots" filled with a high compressive strength underlayment patch or self-leveling cement compound developed by a reputable manufacturer.

Color and grain matching - It is important to consider color and grain matching any molding and hardwood flooring that will be installed directly...

So you have a brand new hardwood floor. You either have a new home, or we have installed a new wood floor in your existing home. Maybe you have never had a wood floor before. What are you supposed to do, are you afraid to walk on the floor, or afraid you will scratch the floor? It can happen, but hopefully with these helpful hints, it won’t.

Moving in Appliances. We see more damage from moving in cook stoves, dishwashers, and refrigerators than any other items. Buy a couple sheets of 1/4 or 1/2 inch plywood or chipboard to lay on the floor to protect it from appliance feet, wheels and dolly wheels. Keep the appliances on this plywood until they are completely in place. DO NOT RELY ON REFRIGERATOR WHEELS!! Deep scratches or dents from heavy appliances can be very expensive to fix, and could result in the entire floor having to be re-sanded/refinished. Wood floors are hard and they are tough, but refrigerators are very heavy and the wheels are fairly narrow, so...

Pergo flooring is junk. We had most of the down stairs and all the loft area professionally installed in our new home. The floor scratches easily and the seams are starting to warp. This is just from mopping regularly as it shows every footprint and dirt and is hard to keep looking clean. It's only been in for about six months. It will probably have to...
