There are many different hardwood styles available. Whether you want a dark rustic hardwood look or something bright and contemporary, there is an option available to suit your taste. Hardwood planks have different characteristics based on the species used and how they’re manufactured. Popular wood species include maple, hickory, oak, walnut, and birch. Each offers unique visuals and performance levels. For instance, oak is extremely hard and scratch-resistant with uniform grain patterns and shading. You’ll also find wide and narrow hardwood planks of various lengths, as well as a variety of finish colors and textures.
When it comes down to choosing the right hardwood for your home or business, it’s important to understand the differences between solid and engineered planks. Solid wood floor panels are the traditional form and have been used for centuries to build beautiful structures. Each plank is made of a single solid piece of wood throughout. Solid wood is usually ¾” thick and can be refinished many times over the decades. Engineered hardwood panels are a newer development and have become popular in both homes and businesses. Engineered planks are made using layers of composite wood that are glued together to create a stable, durable plank that’s moisture-resistant. At the surface is a premium piece of hardwood, which is why solid and engineered planks look identical from above. This construction provides superior stability and prevents the planks from warping with moisture exposure.
Modern wood floors have become more versatile than ever. You can now have hardwood floors in virtually any room of your home. We even have waterproof hardwood, which can be installed in kitchens and bathrooms. Generally, solid wood floors are recommended for low-moisture spaces that are on or above grade and climate controlled. Engineered planks can be installed on any level of your home, including finished basements, and generally handle moisture and foot traffic better than solid wood. When it comes to installation, we recommend turning to our experts for a professional installation, as we’ll ensure the job gets done right and is fully covered under your warranty.
