3 Hardwood flooring types to consider

Types of wood flooring: solid hardwood

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.

Types of hardwood flooring: engineered hardwood flooring

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.

Types of wood flooring: prefinished hardwood floors

Prefinished wood flooring offers a convenient and stylish solution for homeowners seeking the timeless beauty of hardwood with added durability and ease of installation. Unlike traditional hardwood flooring, prefinished wood comes with a factory-applied finish, which eliminates the need for on-site sanding and finishing. This not only saves time and labor during installation but also minimizes dust and fumes, creating a cleaner and healthier environment. Prefinished wood flooring is available in a wide range of wood species, finishes, and plank sizes, allowing homeowners to achieve their desired look effortlessly. With its durable finish and easy maintenance, prefinished wood flooring is an excellent choice for high-traffic areas like living rooms, kitchens, and hallways, providing long-lasting beauty and value to any home.
