Why Choose Hardwood for your Floors?

All of our manufacturers have implemented a replanting and selective harvesting program so that no one area is over harvested.

What's the difference between Solid and Engineered?
There are basically two ways for a sculptor to create a statue… by reduction or by construction. Wood flooring works the same way. Solid wood flooring is produced by reducing the material to the shape and thickness desired - a hardwood plank is cut, planed, and sanded down. Engineered wood flooring is constructed; i.e., it is built up to the shape and thickness desired by layering thin layers of hardwood one on top of another. Each has its advantages.
Solid Hardwood Flooring
Solid hardwood floors can be sanded and refinished again and again over several generations of use. Scratches, dents, stains or wear can be removed in this fashion, and the floor can restored to its original condition.
Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Engineered hardwood flooring is real wood flooring, but is more stable than solid wood and is less susceptible to shrinking and expanding with changes in temperatures and humidity. The durability of engineered hardwood is increased by constructing the floor through the use of multiple wood layers.
- Engineered hardwood is great for rooms like basements, kitchens, and bathrooms where small amounts of moisture may be present.
- It is possible to install engineered hardwood over concrete or below-grade in basements.
- Some engineered wood floors can be refinished one to three times, however, engineered floors with a top layer thinner than 1/10" can not be refinished, but recoated instead to renew the hardwood surface.
