Hardwood

Hardwood Flooring—Splendor For Your Home

Whether you’re rehabbing a vintage gem or sprucing up a contemporary modern, lovely hardwood flooring will grace your rooms with splendor and provide an excellent investment in the value of your property.

Today, you have your choice of two types of hardwood flooring – solid hardwood and engineered hardwood.

Solid Hardwood Flooring vs. Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Beneath its protective finish, solid hardwood flooring is precisely that: solid hardwood through and through. It’s perfect for nearly any room in your house. Solid hardwood floors are not only visually striking they’re also highly durable. A properly installed and well-maintained hardwood floor can last forever.

Engineered hardwood flooring is made up of a top layer of a real hardwood over a core that usually consists of plywood layers, which are laminated together to form a durable plank. This structure makes engineered hardwood flooring a smart choice to lay over concrete subfloors and radiant heating systems.

Endless Hardwood Options

We’ve been in business for over 50 years and that means we know pretty much everything there is to know about hardwood floors. Our design team will help you choose the right species, color, texture, and finish based on your design scheme, your lifestyle, and your budget.

When purchasing hardwood, there are many factors to take into consideration:

  • Durability: Hardness is a factor that affects the longevity of your floors.
  • Color: Floors should harmonize with your furniture and accessories.
  • Texture: Smooth, distressed, natural—or something in between.
  • Finish: High gloss or low gloss.
  • Character: Even planks for a traditional look; uneven planks for a casual or rustic feeling.
  • Plank Width: Wide planks make a room feel open; narrow planks are less expensive.
  • Edge Detail: We’ll guide you to make the right decision—there are countless choices.

Hardwood Floors: On Trend and a Smart Investment

Hardwood is wildly popular is because it’s so versatile. It works with any décor, is available in a dizzying array of colors and textures, and lends itself to all types of finishes. It can be left as is or adorned with area rugs. It’s warmer on a cold day than other hard floors and stays cool in the hotter months.

Hardwood floors are a smart investment, too. When showing signs of wear, they can be sanded and refinished instead of having to be replaced. And homes with hardwood floors usually fetch higher prices than homes with other types of flooring.
