Which Type, Cut, & Finish Is Right for You?
The species of hardwood is one consideration, while the type, cut, and finish are others that require your attention. Wood floors come in two basic types--engineered and solid hardwood flooring. Engineered wood is enhanced during the manufacturing process to resist moisture and can be installed in any room. Solid wood is the traditional option, made of thick planks cut from a single board. These offer enduring beauty as the wood can be refinished several times, so this type of flooring lasts up to 100 years.
Individual planks can be cut thin or wide. Thin is for narrow strips of 2 ½” to 3” wide, while wide applies to boards that are broader than this, 5”, 7”, 10”, or even 12’’ wide. The width of individual planks contributes greatly to the unique character of a room. Then, too, the finish you choose provides a distinctive appeal. Popular choices include hand-scraped, distressed, or reclaimed, or you can opt for aluminum oxide, limed, or oiled wood. Our store even offers custom cuts and colors of hardwood.
Meeting the Challenge of Hardwood Installation
Hardwood is challenging to install unless you are one of our master craftsmen. These professionals have the skill and knowledge to achieve a favorable outcome. Options include floating, nail down, or glue down. Ask us about custom wood inlays, medallion, and borders. When it comes to hardwood flooring installation, it is essential to lay the planks on a clean and level subfloor. That way the individual planks lay flat and smooth. There is also a selection process involved in hardwood floor installation. Our experts choose boards with a similar look and pattern to install side by side or one after the other. This gives symmetry to your wood floors that add to the overall beauty of the installation.
