Hardwood Flooring Guide

Hardwood flooring is a long and storied tradition in American homes. Traditional and long-lasting, hardwood flooring is renowned for its natural beauty, its craftsmanship, and its transformative abilities. Modern innovation has now made it possible for hardwood flooring to be enjoyed in spaces where this previously wasn’t an option.

If properly nurtured, your hardwood flooring will add significant ongoing value to your property. Rich, lush grains add depth to your space and can make your rooms appear larger than they actually are. This is just one of the many things we love about natural hardwood flooring. That being said, hardwood isn’t a good fit for every room – or for every occupant.

Are you considering hardwood for your next home project? Read on: we can help you to make an informed – and beautiful- decision that you’ll love living with.

Solid vs Engineered Hardwood

Solid hardwood flooring, which is the original form of hardwood flooring, is crafted using single, solid planks of various wood species. Beautiful and bold, solid hardwood plank appeals highly to traditionalists. It’s also a nice choice for those who redecorate frequently, since it can be refinished over and over again.

Engineered hardwood flooring can be used in spaces where solid hardwood isn’t recommended. This modern answer to hardwood is crafted in durable layers, and often comes with a water-resistant core. Engineered hardwood is made to handle humidity better than its solid cousin. It is also more cost-efficient.
