Types of Wood
Hardwood is made from trees, and there are several different species to choose from. The different popular hardwood options include maple, cherry, oak, and birch, among others. Each wood option offers unique shades and character, and they also feature different strength levels and wear resistance.
What is The Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?
Solid hardwood is one solid piece of wood from top to bottom. The simple construction allows the natural character of the wood to stand out. Solid hardwood performs best when installed above or on grade, and can even be sanded and refinished to extend its lifetime in your home. Engineered hardwood floors are made of multiple real wood veneers whose grains run in different directions in order to increase stability. This makes the planks more stable and durable. They can also be refinished. They best perform installed in above, on and below grade so you can enjoy them on every level of your home!
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
Popular spots for hardwood are bedrooms and living rooms. Solid hardwood should be installed in cool, dry places around your home. Engineered hardwood can be installed on all levels of your home, including your basement. Other places hardwood can be install includes hallways and staircases. We recommend avoiding installing hardwood in places with a lot of foot traffic and moisture, this can cause damage to the planks.
