Wood flooring – centuries old
Wood flooring has been around for centuries and it is no wonder due to the warmth and beauty it brings to homes and commercial businesses. Today it is still a much sought after feature for home buyers and very popular for the home remodelers. Oak is probably the most installed wood over the past thirty years or so, but things have changed with the advent of hundreds of hardwood flooring options.
Engineered and solid wood options
There are two simple types of wood flooring: solid and engineered. Solid is just that…a solid piece of wood; engineered is made up of 6 or 7 layers of thin wood with the desired species wood as the top layer.
Solid wood can be installed above or on grade. Engineered wood can be used for the same but also can be installed below grade such as a basement. The key to using engineered wood below grade where moisture can be an issue is how it is installed.
Pros and cons of hardwood floors
As you can imagine, hardwood floors give the look of simple and clean and very aesthetically pleasing. At the same time, it gives the room warmth and comfort. In fact, you can always throw an area rug over a wood floor to accentuate the warmth of a room. Wood floors are also easy to maintain and clean, while still providing durability.
One of the cons to choosing hardwood flooring is the cost. However, wood floors are an investment; in fact having wood floors in a home adds resale value to a home up to 10 to 15 percent!
