Hardwood Flooring Guide
Timeless, enduring, and naturally beautiful, hardwood flooring appeals to homeowners of all ages and styles – and it’s easy to see why. Hardwood flooring is made to stand the test of time. In fact, there are certain hardwoods that can be refinished over and over again: an extremely appealing option for the perpetually indecisive.
While the many attributes of hardwood flooring speak for themselves, a decision to install hardwood flooring should never be done in haste. Deciding to do your due diligence by dedicating a fair amount of time to researching all your options is a decision you won’t likely ever regret. As always, you can trust in the experts in our Denver showroom to help you decide on flooring that’s perfect for your budget, lifestyle, and décor needs.
Solid Hardwood vs Engineered Hardwood
When it comes to your hardwood flooring, there’s so much more than meets the eye. Solid hardwood and engineered hardwood may appear similar, but there’s a lot going on beneath the surface.
With solid hardwood flooring, each individual plank is made from a single piece of wood. This being the most traditional option, solid hardwood is also preferred by those who enjoy redecorating frequently because it can be sanded down and refinished over and over again. Installing either on or above grade is recommended.
In more recent years, engineered hardwood has become a rising star in the home décor world. Built of 100% wood, but in multiple layers, this beautiful option is considered by many to be a smarter choice due to its affordability and durability. Engineered hardwood can be installed below grade: it can also withstand moisture. This flooring is fully renewable and can be refurbished on whim, although not as often as solid hardwood.
