Do you have a particular look in mind when shopping hardwood flooring? The good news is there’s certainly no shortage of wood species. With plenty to choose from in both engineered and solid flooring options, hardwood runs the full gamut from domestic to exotic species:
Engineered hardwood flooring is constructed with several layers of genuine wood. This top layer can come in many different species. These pressed layers improve durability and make for a floor that’s less prone to changes in humidity levels. Engineered hardwood is ideal for high-traffic areas and families with busy lives. It’s significantly more affordable than solid hardwood and can be installed in areas where solid woods aren’t recommended.
Solid hardwood flooring is constructed from a solid piece of wood. These planks will differ in texture and can vary in the number of knots and mineral streaks. Solid hardwood is a sturdy material and has been used for many years as a primary flooring type. Wood does tend to expand and contract when the weather changes, and there is no exception to the rule with hardwood floors. Solid hardwood boards must be installed correctly so they don’t buckle or warp. There is usually a gap between the wall and the first hardwood board so that they have room to change with the climate.
Hardwood flooring is made to last a lifetime, but it will likely need help along the way! Refinishing your hardwood floor is a painstaking process – one best left to qualified professionals. This holds whether you’re seeking a new look for a floor you’ve had for decades or a simple refreshing of problem areas. Going well beyond the skill set of even the most avid YouTuber, sanding or refinishing a hardwood floor is a carefully honed skill. Stain, paint, and/or a water-based or polyurethane finish completes the process. These products should be selected with care since the goal is to add some additional decades of life to your floor.
