What are the benefits of hardwood flooring?
Few flooring materials are as long lasting and age as gracefully as hardwood floors, adding to the resale value of your home through their timeless qualities and neutral design. This natural material is environmentally friendly and supports better indoor air quality. It is a versatile, durable product that is cost effective to refinish, stain or paint in any desirable colour to evolving styles – even after many years. And, unlike carpeting, it’s so simple to keep clean.
Where are the best places to use hardwood flooring?
Engineered hardwood can be installed almost anywhere, including below-grade spaces, on concrete and in condos. Its layered construction reduces the risk of warping, gapping, buckling and expansion contraction movement so it is the better option for more humid areas like kitchens and basements. Some engineered wood flooring is also suitable for use with radiant heated floors. Solid and engineered hardwood is the preferred option, because it can be sanded and re-finished to look great again, even after many years.
Once you have selected your perfect hardwood floor, let our professional installers turn your floor into a showpiece. Just remember, solid and engineered hardwood comes in many different species of wood, like Red Oak, White Oak Maple, Cherry, Birch and Hickory each with their own characteristics. Installation can be done by laying planks straight, diagonally or in a herringbone pattern for a showstopping effect.
Solid Hardwood Floors Vs Engineered Hardwood:
Solid Hardwood comes in many different species each with their own characteristics. Despite their differences all species of hardwood should be installed in climate stable, dry environments.
Made up of laminated layers of wood with a top finished layer of hardwood, engineered floors give you the beauty of hardwood with more versatility and strength. Whether installed over concrete or in humid basements engineered floors are perfect for environments that challenge traditional solid hardwood.
There are different methods of installation. The nail/staple down method is commonly used on solid hardwood and engineered wood, when installed over plywood. Full spread glue down and glue assist is used for wider boards. For more information, check out our resource guide.
Solid Hardwood Floors Versus Engineered Hardwood
While there isn’t any dramatic difference between solid or engineered hardwood flooring, engineered hardwood lends itself to more areas in the home, such as on concrete below grade where solid wood flooring should not be installed. Both options are more environmentally friendly and can be sanded and resurfaced over a lifetime.
