Is There A Hardwood Floor In My Favorite Style?

Modern hardwood flooring comes in thousands of options. Rest assured, there are products to suit every need and taste. Hardwood can be contemporary and trendy or rustic and refined. There are products in a full spectrum of lengths, widths, finishes, and shades.




Where Does My Hardwood Floor Come From?

Hardwood flooring is made from domestic and exotic tree species, with each species offering up its distinct traits. These options include:

As you begin narrowing down your selection, it’s critical to remember that each type of wood performs differently and has varying degrees of hardness.



Is Engineered Hardwood Made From Real Wood?

Engineered hardwood flooring is made from real wood, differently. To create a dimensionally stable floor, engineered hardwood uses wood veneers pressed together in cross-grain patterns. It’s sturdier than a solid hardwood floor, so it’s ideal for homes with heavy traffic. Engineered hardwood is less prone to expand and contract from humidity and weather shifts. It can be installed in areas where solid hardwood can’t. Below-grade rooms like basements and above-grade rooms like finished attics are perfect for engineered hardwood. Some engineered hardwood can also be refinished, and there are select products that are considered fully waterproof.




But What If I Want a More Traditional Hardwood Floor?

Solid hardwood flooring is milled from trees and kept in one complete piece. Its construction remains mostly the same as years ago. The species of tree that solid hardwood comes from determines its hardness, as well as what the floors look like. While solid hardwood does expand and contract with changes in humidity levels, it can be refinished multiple times. This makes it a prime choice for homeowners who want long-lasting floors. Solid hardwood floors are recommended for living rooms, bedrooms, playrooms, and offices, or areas where there is less traffic and moisture. They can increase the value of your home and if properly maintained, will last decades.



What Do I Need To Know When Planning My Hardwood Flooring Installation?

Hardwood flooring is best reserved for dry, quiet rooms. It doesn’t fare well in bathrooms and kitchens though the recent introduction of waterproof hardwoods is gradually changing this. Engineered planks offer a greater degree of flexibility overall since this flooring type can safely manage a fair degree of moisture. We’re proud to offer a wide range of in-house hardwood flooring services, including installation and hardwood refinishing.




Refinishing Your Hardwood Floors

Need help bringing your old hardwood floor back to life? Buffing or sanding and refinishing floors are two different methods used to bring hardwood floors back to their original state.
