Types of Hardwood
Hardwood is available in a variety of species, styles, colors, plank sizes and more. Different species of wood can range in color and durability, leaving you with a unique floor. Oak and maple are naturally hard wood options, and are great for families with an active household. There are two types of hardwood you can choose from, which is a solid or engineered construction. It is not a matter of which hardwood is better than the other, but rather which would be better suited for your home and lifestyle.
Solid hardwood has its own special characteristics that no other flooring type can replicate. The simple construction allows for wood’s natural beauty to stand out. Engineered hardwood is also made from real wood, and is made up of three to seven wood veneer layers with a finished piece of premium wood on the surface. This layered construction allows for the plank to be more stable and resist the natural tendency of wood to expand or contract.
Where can you Install Hardwood?
Hardwood is a time-tested long lasting flooring option, but it needs to be installed in certain areas of your home to live out its intended lifecycle. As an example, solid hardwood can only be installed in on and above ground rooms like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Due to its simple construction it is not built to handle heavy foot traffic. Engineered hardwood flooring can be installed in kitchens, hallways and even basements due to its durable construction.
Hardwood should not be installed in places with a lot of moisture and humidity like bathrooms and laundry rooms.
