Hardwood Flooring Guide
A classical tradition, hardwood flooring will never go out of style. With its beauty and timeless appeal, hardwood readily complements your furnishings, while creating perfect ambiance to entertain family and friends. Delivering sound reduction and foot cushioning that’s considered by many to be superior to ceramic, tile, stone, and other hard surfaces, hardwood also offers up an impressive variety of styles: from rustic hand-scraped Brazilian cherry to glossy, polished bamboo.
Since hardwood flooring can represent a significant investment, it’s important to choose carefully. Hardwood definitely has its perks. It’s durable and can be refinished multiple times and is overall easy to maintain. Simply sweep or vacuum it clean and it will stay free of mold, dander, or pollen. This makes it a great choice for allergy sufferers.
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Modern-day hardwood flooring generally falls into two major families: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. It’s sometimes impossible to tell the difference upon a glance. But there are some major differences are going on beneath the surface.
Solid hardwood, is most traditional, and each plank is made from a solid piece of wood. It is sturdy, can be refinished repeatedly, and can last for many years if cared for properly. Engineered hardwood is also made entirely of wood, but is built in layers for a denser product. It usually has a watertight core. Engineered hardwood offers more moisture resistance, and for that reason it can be installed below grade.
