Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
Hardwood is recommended for home settings where there isn't significant foot traffic and moisture. Popular spots for hardwood are bedrooms and living rooms. Engineered hardwood can be installed on all levels of your home, including your basement. Other places hardwood can be install includes hallways and staircases.
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood
Solid hardwood is one solid piece of wood from top to bottom. Solid hardwood preforms best when installed above or on grade, and can even be sanded and refinished to extend its lifetime in your home. Engineered hardwood floors are made of multiple real wood veneers whose grains run in different directions in order to increase stability. This allows the floors to resist expanding and contracting during weather changes. These planks can also be refinished. They best perform installed in above, on and below grade so you can enjoy them on every level of your home!
