Hardwood Flooring Guide
Hardwood flooring has appealed to generations of homeowners – and as the old saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Outliving many a fleeting trend, hardwood continues appealing to homeowners of all styles and tastes. Indeed, there’s a lot to love about natural hardwood.
While undeniably gorgeous, hardwood isn’t ideal for every type of space. Since hardwood flooring can represent an impressive investment, it’s very important to “do your homework” first, before scheduling that installation. Properly placed and installed, you will love your hardwood floor for many years to come, passing it on for future generations to enjoy. Our resident hardwood experts are here to gently guide you through the process, from making your selection, to installation, to ongoing upkeep.
Solid Hardwood and Engineered Hardwood
Many, many years ago, during much simpler times, hardwood floors were truly “one size fits all.” As we know all too well, such an approach simply wouldn’t do in current times. Luckily for all of us, hardwood flooring has continuously evolved. Nowadays, consumers can expect to be presented with two major types of hardwood flooring: hardwood and engineered.
A more traditional choice, solid hardwood planks are made from a solid piece of wood. This is the same type of flooring you’ll often see in historic districts. Today, solid hardwood is still much sought after, as it can be refinished over and over again. However, solid hardwood cannot be installed in spaces falling below grade.
A more modern innovation, engineered hardwood planks are carefully crafted in layers, though they’re still made entirely of wood. Engineered floor planks are sturdier and many varieties have a waterproof core. They are a wonderful option for finished basements, and other spots that previously couldn’t harbor hardwood.
