Hardwood flooring has enjoyed resurgence in popularity due to its natural beauty, durability, long life and replenishable resources. There are many popular species in today’s wood flooring. While oak flooring continues to be the most popular, hickory, pine, maple, and several species in exotic hardwood flooring are great selections as well. We offer a variety of quality hardwood products that can achieve your desired result.
Solid wood flooring is subject to change in conditions that will cause it to expand and contract. This characteristic prohibited the use of hardwood with subfloors in direct contact with the ground or below the ground level. Engineered floors are manufactured similar to plywood with different layers of wood glued in opposite directions. This process reduces the amount of expansion and contraction. As a result engineered hardwood floors can go places solid wood flooring can’t. They can be installed using staples, glue or, new to the market, click together systems. If you are wondering about the thinner top layer wearing through, don’t. The finishes will protect it and you will get many years of service.
