Traditional unfinished solid hardwood is still considered the best wood floor option, but prefinished solid wood and engineered wood are great alternatives. All three types of flooring look the same in your home. Oak is the most popular wood species. Red oak and white oak brands provide a range of colors. You can find a great selection of hardwood flooring and more at Jamie's Carpet Shop. We have showrooms in Amherst, Sandusky, and Elyria, Ohio, and a mobile showroom.

Solid wood

Wood floors give a home a sophisticated look that other flooring materials can't duplicate. The installation team can install raw wood in your home and then sand, stain, and seal it. The structural integrity of the floor system is enhanced. Boards are installed close together and sealed well. The floor has a flush look, while floors constructed with prefinished boards have a beveled look. Floors can be installed in one day when the boards are finished in the factory. It may take up to two weeks to finish a floor on-site, including time for acclimation.

Engineered wood

Engineered wood flooring has a layer of hardwood on the surface, and thus, it provides the same classic beauty as solid wood flooring. Man-made planks are more versatile than solid wood planks for two reasons. First, planks have a base that can tolerate moisture. This base is made up of several layers of plywood that are placed in different directions. Second, interlocking planks are designed for floating floor installation. Planks that need no attachment to the subfloor can be installed over existing flooring, including in moisture-prone spaces.

In addition to top-quality hardwood flooring, Jamie's Carpet Shop offers services that include residential and commercial installation, design consultation, and flooring repairs.
