The world of hardwood flooring continues expanding, and today there are ample choices for homes in every style. If your tastes tend towards tradition, consider a rustic or vintage-inspired wide plank. For a clean, contemporary look, consider something glossy and sleek. Modern hardwood comes in hundreds of colors, finishes, and sizes, so there’s truly something for every setting.
Hardwood flooring is made using a wide range of domestic and exotic tree species. Popular domestic options include maple and pine, while exotic favorites include mahogany and cork. Every species is unique in terms of textures, benefits, and abilities, and each species’ hardness level varies.
Solid and engineered hardwood flooring is impossible to differentiate at glance. Don’t be fooled: these two flooring families are quite different.
Solid hardwood is a traditional hardwood option, with every plank containing a single, solid hunk of natural wood. Beautiful, classic, and uniform in appearance, solid hardwood adds enduring value to your property. It can be repeatedly refinished throughout the years. Solid hardwood is best used in quiet, dry settings with a consistent relative humidity level. It should never be used below grade.
Engineered hardwood planks are a type of manufactured flooring. With each plank comprised of up to seven layers of natural wood veneers, these pressed planks are more stable than solid hardwood and can manage moisture and heavy wear. Engineered hardwood flooring works well on all levels of the home and even be installed in a finished basement. It's a perfect fit for the hallways, stairs, and other busy rooms subject to regular, moderate moisture.
Hardwood floors aren't traditionally used in bathrooms and kitchens, but they can fare fine anywhere else with a bit of thought and research. If you have pets and small children at home, engineered hardwood is a wise decision. For those with their heart set on solid hardwood, keep in mind that careful and consistent climate control is essential. Our specialists can help you make the most thoughtful choices for yourself and your family.
From steering you towards hardwood products that are the right fit for your space and lifestyle to helping you ready for an installation, our team of onsite flooring experts can make the process more convenient for you, with stunning results.
Keep in mind that since it’s all too easy for novice installers to undergo mishaps and setbacks, we don’t recommend tackling your hardwood installation on your own. Instead, allow us to direct you towards our highly qualified contractors while working to ensure proper preparations are made as you count down to the installation day.
Suitable preparations before installation are a vital component of the process leading up to a gorgeous hardwood floor. As you begin disconnecting all traces of old floors, you’ll want to thoroughly scrub your subfloor, being sure to remove any lingering staples, nails, debris, or adhesives. Your remaining subfloor should be completely smoothed over before installation gets underway, and you should be especially attentive to areas showing cracks or uneven spots. Those annoying spots should be addressed sooner rather than later!
