Hardwood Flooring Guide
Looking to add some authentic, natural beauty to your favorite living space? Hardwood flooring is a classic favorite for spaces of all sizes. Since it’s made by Mother Nature, hardwood is truly made to stand the test of time and if cared for correctly, it will last for generations.
If you’re looking for heirloom-quality floors, hardwood might be your answer. Hardwood is extremely eclectic, can last indefinitely, and will increase your property value. That being said, not all hardwood flooring is an ideal fit for every space.
Here are a few basic facts to consider:
Solid Hardwood vs Engineered Hardwood
Solid and engineered hardwood flooring may look and feel very alike, but there are some major differences.
The original classic, solid hardwood consists of single, solid planks of hardwood. This flooring is especially appealing as it can be refinished over and over again. Solid hardwood floors can endure for multiple generations if maintained, but they’re not a wise choice for spaces below grade.
A product of modern innovation, engineered hardwood looks and feels just like solid hardwood, but is assembled in layers for a denser, more damage-resistant floor. This type of hardwood tends to be more affordable. It can withstand refinishing several times over its effective lifetime.
Available in a variety of tree species, today’s hardwood flooring poses seemingly endless options. Engineered and solid hardwood flooring is available in wood species from all over the world: both traditional and exotic. From rustic teak to polished oak, there’s a hardwood to fit nearly every taste and lifestyle.
