Building a new Home Series: Tip #1

  • Nail Down Hardwood Floors – The reason this makes the list is the fact that if your new home is a 2-story your entire staircase will be affected. If a rug or tile is in front of the bottom step than adding a nailed down wood floor after your home is built will mean your bottom step will be about 1.5″ shorter then all the rest of your steps. Builders/Contractors always determine step height by the floor material that is in front of the staircase. IF you plan on adding wood floors after you close then you will want the builder to make sure they add wood floors in the hallway where your staircase is located. This way you will avoid the “short step” problem later on when you complete your Hardwood Floors.
