Discover the stunning elegance of hardwood flooring

Hardwood flooring has long been a favorite for homeowners seeking both elegance and durability. Hardwood flooring is revered for its natural beauty and longevity and adds warmth and character to any space. Whether renovating an old home or building a new one, wood floors are a stylish and practical choice that can elevate the aesthetic of your interiors.

Solid wood vs. engineered wood flooring

When it comes to hardwood flooring, the choice often boils down to solid and engineered wood. Each type has its unique characteristics and advantages.
  1. Solid wood flooring: This flooring type is milled from a single piece of hardwood and is completely natural. Solid hardwood flooring can be sanded and refinished several times, making it a long-lasting option. It's ideal for areas in a home that aren't exposed to high humidity levels.
  2. Engineered wood flooring: Engineered wood is a layered product made of an actual thin slice of hardwood on top of a base of top-quality plywood. This composition makes engineered hardwood more stable than solid wood, reducing the risk of warping or bowing in humid or fluctuating temperatures. It's an excellent choice for basements and over concrete subfloors.
