Which styles speak strongest to you? Hardwood flooring has something for everyone. It’s available in a full range of finishes, species, dimensions, and shades. There are hardwood flooring options both classic and contemporary; trendy and traditional…and everything in between.
Hardwood flooring can be crafted from a wide variety of tree species. Each species boasts its own unique traits, and varying levels of hardness, so here’s where it’s important to pay careful attention. Domestic and exotic hardwood species include:
Solid and engineered hardwood flooring looks alike but is quite distinct in terms of ability and construction.
Engineered hardwood planks are manufactured using up to seven layers of natural wood veneers. With these sturdy, cross-grain planks, engineered hardwood is more stable and can live with heavy usage. Humidity and moisture won't typically mar this floor, which can be used on all levels of the home. Engineered hardwood isn't a feasible option for kitchens and bathrooms, but it's perfect for finished basements, hallways, stairs, and other high-traffic, moderate-moisture zones.
Solid hardwood is a traditional hardwood option that highlights all of the wood's natural traits. With each plank consisting of one single, solid hunk of wood, solid flooring adds uniformity and incredible value. Your solid hardwood floor can be repeatedly refinished and last indefinitely. Solid hardwood flooring isn't ideal for every situation. It needs a consistent interior climate and fares best in quiet, dry rooms. You should never install solid hardwood flooring below grade.
Prior to any flooring installation, we recommend taking a careful inventory of your space and its intended activities. Hardwood flooring isn’t a great option for your bathroom or kitchen. Quiet, dry spaces are the best settings for a hardwood floor. Engineered hardwood offers up greater flexibility and endurance, particularly if there are pets or little kids at home.
