Where can Hardwood be Installed?
Wood flooring can be considered an investment in your home, so we want to help you make the best choice for you and your home. Hardwood floors look great in bedrooms, living rooms, and offices and are perfect for rooms on-grade or above. Remember, hardwood is a natural material so it does require regular maintenance to keep its luster.
Since hardwood is made with natural materials, that means it is also naturally porous. It is always advised to avoid installing hardwood in places with a lot of moisture such as bathrooms and laundry rooms. We also recommend having a professional installation because it makes the process go much faster and is cleaner. You also can rest assured because your floors will be within warranty when you have them professionally installed.
Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood
Hardwood comes in many different options including solid and engineered constructions. You can choose from wide or narrow planks and also finished or unfinished planks. Hardwood colors are also naturally diverse, so choose from a rich oak color, or stay up to date on trends with a gray finish. Whatever your style there is a hardwood floor that fits your needs.
Solid hardwood flooring is considered the original hardwood floor. It features a uniform construction, and can be refinished a few times depending on the thickness of the tongue. Engineered hardwood is a more modern option, and is made with a layered construction, making it structurally stable. Engineered hardwood floors can also be refinished, the amount of times depends on how thick the top layer of the plank is.
