You put a lot of effort into all the decisions that go along with choosing hardwood floors. From the species type, stain color, and sealant to the finish type and protection, you'll have lots to think about. Luckily, there's something for everyone in each of these decisions, so your decor nor the longevity of your floors will ever suffer.
It's very important to remember that solid hardwood flooring can never be installed in any space that is below ground. They must also be properly acclimated before installation to alleviate the risk of peeling, warping, or splitting. Your flooring associate will go over each of these in greater detail when you visit.
For spaces where solid flooring is not feasible, engineered hardwood is an excellent option. Created using layers of plywood or pressed wood, a veneer of solid wood, in your choice of species, is added to the top. Everything is topped with a clear protective topcoat that resists stains, scuffs, and scratches for many years.
These materials should always be installed by a professional installation team, and we'll be glad to introduce you to ours when you visit our hardwood store. Our team has all the necessary tools and experience to make your floors look perfect, right from the start. And you'll always have a "friend in the business" for all future flooring work as well.
