Hardwood flooring is the traditional hallmark for taste, style, and performance. Prized for its natural beauty and lasting durability, hardwood in the home makes a rich visual statement but keeps clean-up a breeze. That's why hardwood floors are the perfect combination of strength and style for homes with both children and pets. Today's wide variety of colors, textures, species, and styles make it easy to find the perfect choice for your home.
You can choose from two categories: Solid wood and engineered wood.
Solid Wood - The most common wood flooring consists of solid, one-piece boards. Solid wood flooring is usually nailed to a sub-floor of wood. Solid wood is not recommended below-grade or for basement installation.
Engineered Wood - Consists of two or more layers of wood laminated together. The top layer is usually a hardwood veneer of varying thickness. The lower layer is a softwood backing, it’s also more structurally sound – it won’t buckle, gap, cup or twist.
Engineered hardwoods can be installed below grade and direct to concrete; solid wood floors cannot.
