Hardwood Floors Installation

1 Material
We finally replaced the yucky and dirty carpet in the kid's bedroom. I love how it turned and it looks so much better!
First, we removed the old carpet. Clean the surface and scrub off the carpet glue and nails from the nail strip on the concrete floor. In the photo we are patching the holes from the nail strips.
Second, after we cleaned the concrete floor. We had to level some of the low spot on the concrete. It is crucial that you make it flat so the wood floors will not break or it have gaps and will make the boards to pop out.
Third, we placed the boards together one at a time like a puzzle pieces. You have to cut it to size.
Lastly, we put quarter round on the base board.

    What did you pour when leveling on the concrete? It looks like some kind of liquid.
