Tips for Choosing Your Perfect Hardwood Flooring:
What level of the home will the hardwood flooring be placed in? If you want to do the basement, or anything below ground level, you will need to go with engineered hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwood flooring is 100% natural wood that is sliced thinly into several cross sections. These thin pieces of natural hardwood flooring are laid at a 90 degree angle from the previous piece. This assures the customer that once the hardwood flooring is laid, it will not be able to expand and contract with the changes in moisture most commonly associated with basements and spaces below ground level.
Next, you need to take into consideration what type of wear do you want to see on your hardwood flooring? Some hardwood flooring is very soft and will dent and scratch easily. If you are looking for more durable hardwood flooring that is more resistant to animal nails, stiletto heels, or general wear and tear you will want harder hardwood flooring.
Lastly, you will want to look for the type of hardwood flooring construction that best suits your tastes. There are generally four types of hardwood flooring to chose from, and we have a large sampling of each one. They include: 3/4 solid hardwood flooring (unfinished or pre-finished), engineered hardwood flooring (unfinished or pre-finished), long strip hardwood flooring wood planks (pre-finished) or parquet tiles.
