HARDWOOD FLOORING IN
For centuries, hardwood flooring has been making a distinctive statement in homes around the world. It’s a versatile design option with tons of natural variation in style. Hardwood planks of every species each come with a unique character, wood graining, knotholes, mineral streaks & color variation, which then change over time with natural age & wear. Best of all, hardwood floors can last for decades with the proper care.
Solid Hardwood vs. Engineered Hardwood
Solid hardwood floors are more traditional. Each plank is made from a single, solid piece of real wood. Planks tend to be ¾ inch thick, allowing them to be refinished many times throughout their lifespan.
Engineered hardwood floors, by contrast, have planks made up of multiple layers of real wood material, such as plywood. Engineered wood is less durable & cannot be refinished as many times as solid wood. It is, however, more versatile, able to be installed on any grade in your home, including finished basements.
