Various characteristics distinguish hardwood flooring types, such as plank length, width, wood grain, color, gloss level, texture, species, and type. Our showroom provides an extensive assortment of planks in different sizes, ranging from extra narrow or wide to short and longer options, which can create diverse flooring styles like herringbone or patterned.
Additionally, it's crucial to consider the species of wood when selecting because each species has its own level of hardness and natural color, which can impact the plank's natural durability and appearance. There's a range of species to choose from, so take your time selecting the ideal one for your needs.
There are two types of hardwood flooring: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood is made from one piece of wood, lasts longer, and can increase your property value. Engineered hardwood is made of composite wood layers with a top layer of real hardwood, making it more water-resistant and suitable for below-grade installation. So, which one is right for you?
Solid hardwood is typically ¾ inch thick. This thickness allows for multiple refinishing, which increases its longevity and lifespan in your home. Although solid hardwood may come with a high price tag, it is worth the investment because it can increase your property value. However, it should only be installed in dry, climate-controlled rooms on or above grade.
Engineered hardwood is more stable and water-resistant, which makes it less susceptible to moisture and warping. As a result, it can be installed in more rooms, including below grade. But, unlike solid hardwood, engineered hardwood flooring cannot be refinished. While this may be a positive for those who don't want to incur the cost of refinishing, it also means that they do not last as long.
Regularly use a soft bristle broom, vacuum with a soft floor attachment, and periodically occasionally clean your floors with a professional-grade wood floor cleaning product. Call or stop into our showroom to buy your wood floor cleaning products today.
Additionally, we recommend using a humidifier in colder months to keep wood movement and shrinkage to a minimum. In Ohio, begin using your humidifier in October and continue through March or April for best results.
