If you're seeking sheer variety, hardwood flooring won't disappoint. With hundreds of options to consider, hardwood can be either contemporary or classical. There’s rustic, weathered, wire-brushed options for vintage looks and glossy, sleek, and modern options for more contemporary styles.
Hardwood flooring is sourced from a wide range of tree species. Some popular domestic hardwood favorites include pine, maple, and oak. If your tastes run more exotic, consider mahogany, cork, or bamboo. It's important to remember that every tree species has a unique hardness level, so choose with care. Our flooring experts can guide you towards options that might fare best in your unique space.
Offering up all of hardwood’s benefits along with modern innovation, engineered hardwood flooring is manufactured using hardwood veneers, which are milled and bound together to form resilient cross-grains. These wooden layers, which often include plywood, make for an enduring floor plank that won’t be affected by factors like humidity and climate fluctuations. Engineered hardwood is made to handle heavy furnishings and frequent foot traffic. It’s generally more affordable than solid hardwood yet can be sanded or refinished a handful of times over its lifetime. Engineered hardwood can be installed below grade, unlike solid hardwood.
For the die-hard traditionalist there’s simply no substitute for solid hardwood flooring. With each plank painstakingly crafted from a solid hunk of natural wood, the appeal of solid hardwood is undeniable. Solid hardwood flooring brings ongoing value to your property, and if properly cared for, can be enjoyed by multiple generations. Still, solid hardwood does have its limitations. It isn’t a great choice for kitchens, laundry rooms, or bathrooms, since humidity can cause it to buckle or expand. Solid hardwood should never be installed below grade. However, it does have maximum evergreen potential, since it can be sanded down and refinished again as the years pass by.
Hardwood flooring shouldn't be installed in the bathroom or a kitchen. If you're set on solid hardwood, remember that careful climate control is essential. Dry, quiet rooms are the best hardwood habitats. If you own pets or have a large family, we recommend choosing an engineered product. There are even waterproof hardwood options available, thanks to modern ingenuity.
