When you make the decision to install hardwood in your home, you have to be aware of the decisions that come along with it. Since hardwood is an investment, you want to be completely confident in your selection. Hardwood comes in a variety of styles, types, colors, and patterns. There are also hardwood trends, such as rustic weather worn look as well as more traditional looks. You can choose from pre-finished or unfinished floors depending on your project timeline and budget. You also have the option of choosing between solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Both offer special benefits to your home.
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood
You really want to focus on choosing between solid and engineered hardwood because it can be impacted by where you plan on installing the wood. We carry the latest trends in hardwood as well as traditional looks, so we’ll always have what you want.
One of the most important factors to consider with hardwood is if you want solid or engineered planks. Solid hardwood is different from engineered because it is made from one solid piece of wood, whereas an engineered plank is made up of several layers of real wood veneers pressed together cross grained. Each type has their own pros and cons, for example solid hardwood can be refinished multiple times to extend its longevity, but where you can install it is limited. On the other hand you can install engineered hardwood in more places of your home, but you cannot refinish it multiple times.
Determining the needs of your space and project will help you in the decision between solid and engineered hardwood.
Where Can You Install Hardwood?
Hardwood flooring can be glued down, nailed down, or there are floating options as well. They are very easy to clean, but do require regular maintenance so they do not lose their luster. You can also refinish your hardwood floors to keep them looking newer longer.
They type of hardwood floor you choose can be determined by where you want to install it. Solid hardwood should be installed in places on of above level of your home such as bedrooms and living rooms. Engineered hardwood is more versatile in where it can be installed. It can go on all levels of your home and can also be installed in high traffic areas such as hallways and stairs.
