Different types of wood flooring

Solid hardwood flooring is the epitome of elegance and durability

Solid hardwood flooring is the epitome of elegance and durability. Crafted from a single piece of solid wood, this flooring option offers unmatched beauty and character.

Solid hardwood is available in various wood species, such as oak, maple, cherry, and walnut, each with its unique grain patterns and colors. It can be sanded and refinished multiple times, allowing you to restore its original beauty and extend its lifespan. It is best suited for ground-level rooms and areas with stable humidity levels.

Engineered wood flooring combines natural beauty and real wood

Engineered hardwood flooring combines the natural beauty of real wood with enhanced stability. It consists of multiple layers of wood, with a top layer of hardwood veneer and a core layer of high-density fiberboard or plywood. 

This construction provides excellent resistance to moisture and temperature fluctuations, making it suitable for any room in the house, including basements and areas with higher humidity. Engineered hardwood can be refinished, albeit fewer times than solid hardwood. It offers a wider range of installation options, including floating, glue-down, and nail-down methods.

Reclaimed hardwood flooring is an eco-friendly option that showcases its story

Reclaimed hardwood flooring is an eco-friendly option that adds character and history to any space. It is sourced from salvaged wood, such as old barns, warehouses, and other structures. 

Reclaimed hardwood showcases unique imperfections, nail holes, and patina that tell a story of its past life. This type of flooring adds charm and authenticity to a home, and its durability is a testament to the wood's age and quality. Reclaimed hardwood is available in various species and can be refinished to match desired aesthetics.
