Hardwood Flooring Guide
Hardwood flooring is a long lasting flooring option and has been around for hundreds of years. Hardwood is known as a naturally beautiful floor, and can even add value to your home. Combined with durability, hardwood flooring is hard to beat.
Choosing the right kind of hardwood flooring for your home is important because it can be such a large investment. Hardwood comes in a variety of options ranging from type, style, finishes, even species. There are several popular types of hardwood including oak or hickory, and rustic weather worn looks are trending. You can choose from prefinished or unfinished floors depending on your project timeline and budget. You also have the option of choosing between solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Both offer special benefits to your home.
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood
There are several differences between solid and engineered hardwood. Solid hardwood is typically a 3/4” solid plank, whereas engineered hardwood is made up of multiple layers of real wood veneers. You can install solid hardwood in rooms that have low foot traffic such as bedrooms and dining rooms. Engineered hardwood can be installed throughout your home including hallways, living rooms, and finished basements.
