When you need a floor covering that offers timeless visuals, outstanding durability, and an extensive lifespan, you can't go wrong with hardwood flooring
. These materials work in several rooms throughout your home and can easily last over 100 years when they are professionally installed. Here are some facts about this material you should know as you begin your new flooring search.
Solid and engineered wood flooring gives you the classic and stunning appearance you want, with your choice of species type, color, and finish. That means any décor is easily matched and can also keep you trendy and current for years to come. Also, consider the available variety of formats, widths, lengths, and installation techniques to give you even more diversity.
While solid wood flooring is natural wood through and through, engineered hardwood is built a little differently. A veneer of solid wood is attached to perpendicularly laid plywood and then covered with a wear layer to look and perform as you need it to, or better. You'll find these materials are an outstanding choice for basements, foyers, kitchens, or any other space where you need just a touch more protection and durability than solid wood might give.
Solid wood will serve you for well over 100 years, while engineered wood flooring lasts about 30 years and both with proper maintenance. When you visit our hardwood flooring store
