Hardwood Floor Installation, Design Consultation & Sales, Ladera Ranch, CA

At Gäte Hardwood Floors, we observe the highest standards of craftsmanship with every hardwood floor that we install in Ladera Ranch. We start by having your chosen hardwood flooring materials delivered several days before the scheduled installation date so that your wood can acclimate to your indoor environment. Then, our wood floor installation process begins with proper subfloor preparation. This involves ensuring that the substrate is completely level and laying down the appropriate insulation and moisture barrier system. Once the subfloor is ready, our experienced craftsmen — never subcontractors — install the hardwood floor. Whether you are having factory-finished or unfinished wood floors installed, we’ll handle the job from start to finish. For unfinished wood floors, our installation process also includes sanding, hard-plating, color treatments, and applying the protective finish. By carefully following the industry’s best practices for hardwood floor installation, we ensure that your new flooring system looks spectacular and is able to achieve its maximum lifespan. Depend upon the wood floor specialists at Gäte to provide expert hardwood flooring installation for your Ladera Ranch home or business. We install all types of hardwood floors and stairs and keep our prices highly competitive. Contact us today to schedule a free on-site consultation.

Hardwood Floor Cleaning & Maintenance, Ladera Ranch California

Proper care and maintenance is required to keep hardwood flooring looking beautiful and in optimal condition. This includes regularly sweeping or gently vacuuming your floors, using rugs at areas of high foot traffic, placing protective pads under furniture, keeping pet nails short, wiping up spills soon after they occur, and trying to keep the relative humidity between 35% and 55%. Additionally, wood floors generally need to be refinished every few years in order to continue protecting your floors from moisture, debris, dirt, and general wear. How often they need to be refinished depends on how well they are cared for and what type of finish you prefer to use. Following a new installation or upon our first visit, we’ll educate you on the best way to care for your hardwood floors and/or stairs. Call today to learn more about the hardwood floor cleaning and maintenance services we offer in Ladera Ranch. We are Bona Certified, Richard Marshall Fine Hardwood Flooring Certified, and all of our employees are highly trained and experienced.


We have beautiful, 5 year old wood floors that were dull from the wrong cleaning products, scratched from a new puppy, and damaged from a water pipe leak. We had 3 different flooring contractors come out for estimates and all 3 gave us different advice. The first contractor said we needed to replace all of the flooring because it was beyond repair. Brian, from Gate Hardwood Flooring, said he could replace the damaged pieces and then strip down and reseal the existing flooring. And the 3rd contractor said there was no way to replace the flooring and strip down our flooring without ruining our existing wood floors. I was so confused that I wrote to the flooring manufacturer and asked for their opinion. They wrote back saying to go with Brian! So we hired Brian. He made our floors beautiful again! He was so professional and so reasonable and knowledgeable! Our floors look like new again! Brian is amazing!
