What to know about hardwood flooring

Wood floors give you plenty of options, some of which you might not even have thought about before embarking on this shopping journey. Options for visuals, performance, and lifespan are all a part of this personalization plan, and you’ll find exactly what you need. And we’re there to help, every step of the way.

Some homeowners prefer solid hardwood, while others prefer an engineered floor. Chances are one will be best suited to your requirements, but they both offer a wealth of perfection. When you’re ready to find out more, we’re here to make sure we make that possible.

Getting the most from your hardwood flooring

Both solid and hardwood flooring offers so much to fall in love with. Choose your perfect species, sealant, stain colors, and finish type, to create the most personalized floors. Each of these options hasspecific benefits that will make your future better as far as your floors are concerned.

While shopping this line, you’re sure to hear about both prefinished and unfinished materials. Unfinished materials are raw wood that has to be sanded, stained, and finished in your home. Prefinished woods are already sanded and stained before arriving at your home and offer a much faster installation time than the solid variety.
However, unfinished materials give you more options in stain color and finish type, opening up a wealth of opportunity for stunning appearance and décor matching. There’s nothing quite like opting for a specific stain color and finish that adds your unique personality to your flooring. What's more, you can even choose finish types, such as vintage, distressed, or hand-scraped, to safeguard against little signs of wear in the future.

You’ll genuinely enjoy the experience with either solid or engineered wood. You should also know that if you need flooring for below-grade spaces such as basements, engineered wood is a much better option in these spaces. They stand up well to moisture, dampness, humidity, and temperature changes for an excellent result, every time.
