HARDWOOD

Hardwood flooring can give you many looks from rustic to contemporary and everything in between.
The most important thing to know about the Hardwood Flooring we have for sale, is the difference between Solid Hardwood Flooring and Engineered Hardwood Flooring.

Here is a brief explanation of the two.

  • Solid is made of a single piece of wood and is suitable for installation on ground level or above.  Solid wood floors are ¾” thick and are made from a single piece of timber.  They are thicker that an Engineered floor, but they can be sanded and refinished through the years many times and will last for generations.
  • Engineered is a more versatile product suitable for anywhere in your home that is composed of a layer of wood that is put over a substructure of plywoods much like the plywood subfloor of your home.  Because of the new technology behind an Engineered floor, they are now one of the toughest and most resilient flooring types on the market.  Engineered wood floors are less susceptible to humidity levels.
