Choosing Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood floors can bring beauty and an elegant look and feel to your home. The warmth that hardwood flooring brings cannot be replicated by any other floor covering. As a matter of fact, other flooring products only try to copy the natural characteristics of wood such as the grains and hand-scraping that some hardwoods feature. Today's hardwood floors come in a wide variety of species, hardness, colors and textures.
There are two different hardwood constructions available including solid and engineered. Solid hardwood is a traditional option for many homes, and features a very simple construction. These solid planks allow the natural characteristics of wood to stand out and add value to any space they are installed in. Engineered hardwood features a layered construction. Multiple layers of wood veneers are laid cross-grained, which creates stability and prevents wood from naturally expanding or contracting due to changes in humidity and moisture.
We closely follow wood industry guidelines with our installations, ensuring that potential problems are avoided. With today's growing environmental concerns, all of our suppliers follow strict industry guidelines.

Hardwood is a durable and time testing flooring option that homeowners love. When installed in the right rooms and taken care of properly, they can last the life of your home. Solid hardwood flooring should be installed in cool, dry places around your home like in bedrooms and living rooms. Engineered hardwood is somewhat more versatile and can be installed in places with a lot of traffic and some moisture like in kitchens and entryways. You can even have it installed in your basement.
