Why choose hardwood?

Prized for its natural beauty and lasting durability, hardwood in your home makes a rich visual statement but keeps cleanup a breeze.

Hardwood floors combine strength and style; that’s why we recommend them for homes with both children and pets. Our wide variety of colors, textures, species and styles make it easy to find the perfect choice for your home.

We offer both solid and engineered hardwood.

In solid wood flooring, each plank is a solid piece of wood from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. These hardwood floors are best installed on or above grade. Wood species vary in hardness and light sensitivity, so keep foot traffic, furniture and light exposure in mind when choosing a species.
Engineered hardwood flooring is made from real hardwood with a cross-ply construction that resists expansion and contraction from humidity changes. It can be installed on any level.

Our favorite aspect about hardwood flooring is the way it looks. You can choose more uniform patterns or select a style with distinctive natural variations, knots and mineral marks. Light-colored hardwoods like grays will open up spaces to produce an airy vibe. Golden honey tones, the latest hardwood trend, add a warm ambiance.

Wide planks are perfect for crafting a historic or rustic feel and will enhance the natural beauty of any wood type you choose.

Hardwood surfaces will shine for decades. We would love to give your home this timeless beauty.

There are many hardwood species, stains and finishes available and we invite you to browse our catalog HERE or visit The Kitchen & Flooring Design Center to view them in person.

Two types of hardwood

There are two main choices you have in this floor covering. One is solid hardwood flooring and is the type most homeowners think about when considering this flooring type. As the name implies, this is one piece of wood, all the way through, and comes in many various wood species, both domestic and imported. It is well suited for placement in many different rooms in your home, except those that are often damp, humid or might sustain more spills than normal. It’s important to keep in mind that this flooring cannot be placed, below grade, especially in the basement.

The other type is engineered flooring. This has a solid veneer of real wood on the top but is attached to a composite background that is not solid wood. For this reason, it’s less likely to react to changes in temperature and humidity, and can be placed in rooms where solid would cannot. For instance, it’s a much better choice for basements, even though there is an amount of care and maintenance involved, should you decide to place it there.

No matter which type of hardwood floor you choose, it’s important to have it installed by professionals. Not only are there specialized tools necessary to complete the job, but it also takes a degree of experience as well. Be sure to ask your flooring professional about more details concerning installation.
