Hardwood flooring truly offers up something for everyone, with options spanning a wide spectrum of colors, textures, sizes, and finishes. For lovers of rustic décor, there are hand-scraped and wire-brushed planks; while those with a more contemporary aesthetic will appreciate our glossy planks and vivid glazes.
Types of Wood
Today’s hardwood flooring options encompass a whole forest of different tree species. Exotic and domestic, there are many different ways to enjoy hardwood flooring. Oak, pine, maple, cherry, and birch are among the many hardwood species we carry. Each hardwood species offers its own unique wearing abilities, shades, and grain patterns.
Solid Hardwood vs. Engineered Hardwood
Solid hardwood planks- the original hardwood flooring- are comprised of solid pieces of natural hardwood. Considered extremely desirable, solid hardwood adds immense value to your property. It can be refinished over and over again, but doesn’t merge well with moist environments. Engineered hardwood offers us another way to enjoy this highly coveted floor. Composed in 7-9 layers of wooden veneer and plywood, engineered hardwood is a denser and more affordable alternative to solid wood. Since it’s made to keep moisture out, engineered hardwood can also be used in spaces where solid wood isn’t welcome: like your finished basement.
Where to Install Hardwood
Hardwood flooring does have a few limits- especially solid hardwood, which should only be used in cooler, dryer spaces that aren’t below grade. Engineered hardwood is a lot more flexible, and can be used at all flooring levels. It can handle humidity, endure heavy use, and resist scratching. Like any other hardwood, however, engineered hardwood isn’t made for your master bath, or for your kitchen.
