About Hardwood Flooring
One of the industry’s finest, hardwood flooring is widely celebrated for its transformative properties. Naturally created to last and last, your hardwood floor will stay gorgeous for generations if properly attended to. Indeed, there’s a lot to love about natural hardwood, which can add significant value to all the spaces it graces.
Still, hardwood floors aren’t suitable for all spaces. Hardwood flooring isn’t compatible with moisture and humidity, and it can get costly. These are some of the reasons why it’s always wise to do your homework before making any final decisions.
Solid Hardwood vs. Engineered Hardwood
The modern flooring market has given us not one, but two types of hardwood flooring to consider. With double the amount of options, would-be hardwood connoisseurs are advised to truly get to know as much as they can about both types of flooring. Although they look and feel very alike, solid hardwood and engineered hardwood have some very significant differences.
Made from solid wooden planks, solid hardwood is the type of flooring one often encounters in antique buildings. Made to last, solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished as many times as you need to. Solid hardwood can represent a high investment, and should never be installed in areas where it is incompatible: basements, frequently flooded areas, or rooms set below grade.
Made to take on the added challenges of the modern world, engineered hardwood is crafted in multiple layers and has a watertight core. Since the multiple wooden layers add a lot of density, engineered hardwood resists heavy wear, and will tolerate spaces that solid wood wouldn’t. It can also be installed below grade.
A century ago, hardwood floor-seekers were only given a handful of choices. Today, there are tree species from around the globe being used to build flooring. Truly, it depends on your personal tastes and budget: options include everything from basic wide pine to dramatic, marbled mahogany.
