    Wood Floor Types

There are many unique and attractive wood types to choose from when installing a new wood floor. Each type has particular qualities which make it particularly suitable to certain applications.


Known for retaining its dimensions over a wide range of environmental conditions, engineered wood can have advantages over solid products for some applications.  Areas of high humidity, above crawl spaces, below grade, such as basements, or over concrete subfloors make engineered wood flooring a good choice.  Methods of installation can be stapling, glue-down, or floating.  There are choices of wear-layer thickness that allows re-finishing as well.


Solid wood has served as the floor of choice for hundreds of years, due to its durability, beauty and because its wear-layer can be refinished, even if it comes as a polyurethane pre-finished product.  Its thickness also adds structural value to your home, as the conventional installation for solid flooring, which is perpendicular to the floor joists rather than parallel, increases the strength of your entire floor framework and helps prevent vertical deflection (bounce) in the subfloor.  Installation of solid wood flooring is generally considered to be a  lifetime investment.  Most realtors agree that homes with hardwood floors have increased re-sale value.
