Not all hardwood flooring is made the same. Each wood option offers unique shades and character, and they also feature different strength levels and wear resistance. Some of the most popular hardwood flooring species include:
Engineered hardwood and solid hardwood flooring each offer their own respective benefits and challenges, even though they look very much the same. Understanding the distinctions will help you pick the product that’s best for your space and lifestyle. Here are things to consider as you begin shopping for hardwood floors.
Solid hardwood flooring has been around for hundreds of years and there’s nothing like the original. With each plank composed of a singular piece of hardwood, solid hardwood is sturdy enough to last for generations. For humid or moisture-prone spaces, however, solid hardwood isn’t the wisest bet since it tends to shrink or expand when the climate shifts. Still, its long-term appeal is undeniable since it can be refinished over and over (and over) again.
Engineered hardwood flooring is a modern take on a beloved classic. Made of natural hardwoods and plywood, engineered hardwood is crafted in multiple layers, which are then combined with resins and pressed into cross-grains. The result is a floor that’s denser than traditional solid hardwood, and more equipped to withstand humidity and moisture. Unlike solid hardwood, engineered hardwood can be installed below grade.
Unfortunately, yes. Cleaning up water spills and avoiding high-moisture rooms like the bathrooms and in some cases the kitchen is important. This is because wood naturally draws in water which can cause permanent damage to the planks. Humidity, which is the moisture in the air can do the same thing to your hardwood floors. Damages include expanding, contracting, warping, buckling, and more. Therefore, we recommend engineered or 100% waterproof hardwood flooring for rooms where you want to enjoy hardwood without stress.
