Some quick facts about your hardwood choices

There are far more options available in hardwood flooring than you might think. Not only can you choose between the solid and engineered varieties, but you also get to personalize your floors with a gorgeous species selection, a color choice, and a final finish that creates the perfect look. This material is very durable, works well in a variety of settings, and offers an excellent lifespan that can exceed 100 years or more. But will it work for you? Let’s find out.

What is solid hardwood flooring?

Solid hardwood is very popular, offering 100% wood, through and through. It comes in a variety of species that’s easy to personalize. Very durable, this flooring can be finished in a variety of ways. Since the finish will depend on your own specific requirements, you’ll want to discuss the intricate details with one of our professional associates.

It’s important to remember that solid hardwood can never be installed below ground level, such as in basements, and it must be given ample time to acclimate to your home. Adding it to living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, or any room where sheer elegance and stability are desired is a great idea and one you’re sure to appreciate.

What is engineered hardwood flooring?

Engineered flooring is a hardwood product that is created by bonding layers together. The top layer features the species you selected while the base layers, usually three to nine layers thick, are made up of various species. The entire material creates excellent stability, better resistance to moisture and air, and it can be installed anywhere in your home. In fact, it’s often used as an alternative to the solid variety, offering excellent continuity throughout.

We strongly advise a professional installation of your hardwood flooring products. This assures that the proper pre-installation steps are taken, the boards are cut perfectly, and the overall installation is exactly as it should be to reach its expected lifespan. For more information on any aspect of your hardwood flooring experience, be sure to ask your associate.
