Carter Wood Floors is also highly skilled at hardwood floor installation. We offer this service to Mission Viejo home and business owners who are remodeling, wanting to replace an old wood floor, or wish to switch from carpeted flooring to hardwood flooring. With every new installation, our Mission Viejo customers have their choice of wood floor construction (solid or engineered), species (domestic or exotic), style (parquet, plank, wide plank, mixed width plank, thin strip), finish (distressed, hand-scraped, specialty; water-based or oil-based; low, medium, or high gloss; etc.), and color. To help you sort through all of the available options, our professionals will spend the time necessary to answer all your questions, help you weigh the benefits of each option, and bring flooring samples to their onsite visit so you can consider them in the context of your home's or business's lighting, decor, and layout.
At Carter Wood Floors, all of our hardwood comes from either Mullican, Garrison, Bruce, and Robbins, trusted manufacturers who are known for producing floors of exceptional beauty and durability. These manufacturers back up their products with some of the best warranties in the industry. While they all offer our Mission Viejo clients a wide selection of both factory-finished and unfinished wood, Carter Wood Floors prefers to work with unfinished or "raw" wood. By using unfinished wood panels, we can give the wood time to acclimate to your environment prior to installation, custom cut it to size, expertly install and sand it, and then apply the stains and finishes that will give you the exact look and color you are looking for. However, if you have already purchased floor panels, Carter Wood Floors is happy to provide the installation labor for you at a cost-effective price.
Our hardwood flooring can also be installed on your stairs. We often are called upon to convert carpeted stairs to hardwood stairs, refinish existing hardwood staircases, and replace the hardwood on stair treads and/or risers for clients in Mission Viejo. We can even stain the wood on you stairs to perfectly match pre-existing wood floors.

When we receive calls from prospective clients about having wood floors installed in their Mission Viejo home or business, they always wonder if they are better served by investing in solid wood floors or engineered wood floors. Both offer unique benefits and restrictions:
Solid hardwood floors are typically 3/4" of an inch thick and are constructed out of a single piece of wood. Solid hardwood flooring can be factory finished or finished on site, and can be installed by being nailed to either a plywood or OSB (oriented strand board) subfloor. Both installation methods are an excellent choice for ground level installations or above in Mission Viejo properties. Overall, the great advantage solid hardwood flooring possesses over traditional engineered hardwood flooring is in its composition: because hardwood floors are solid hardwood from top to bottom, they can be sanded down and refinished many times.
In contrast, engineered floors are constructed by stacking multiple layers of hardwood plies on top of each other in opposing directions. The layers are together under heat and pressure, and then a top layer or "wear" layer of real hardwood is added over the surface. The main advantage that engineered hardwood floors offers our Mission Viejo customers over solid hardwood floors is that they are more stable dimensionally. The layers of hardwood that are stacked in opposite directions help to counteract the natural tendency of wood to expand and contract when exposed to varying levels of moisture. This added stability makes engineered floors ideal for slab and basement installations, where moisture levels are typically an issue.
To learn more about the pros and cons of these and other flooring options, call Carter Wood Floors today. Our professionals will help you determine the best floor for your Mission Viejo home or business.
