What is Solid Hardwood Flooring?
Solid wood floors have a thick wear surface and can be sanded and finished more times than some engineered wood floors. It is not uncommon for homes in New England, Eastern Canada, and Europe which are several hundred years old to have the original solid wood floor still in use today. They are designed to last the life of the home.
Solid hardwood is hydroscopic and porous. Extreme humidity levels or moisture can cause solid hardwood to expand or contract. This may result in cupping, crowning, disfiguration and unsightly gaps to the floor. This can be especially pronounced in wider plank sizes.
Solid Hardwood is not recommended for basements or “below grade” floors, but can be absolutely stunning on a main floor or “above grade” levels. There have been recent innovations and new products introduced to the hardwood flooring industry, such as Engineered Hardwood or Vinyl products that can be substituted for solid hardwood in areas it is not recommended.
Come and visit our showroom and ask our knowledgeable sales agents which flooring type is right for your project.
What is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?
Engineered Hardwood comes in dozens of dazzling colours and finishes, from handscraped to wide plank wirebrushed, and low and high gloss finishes. It also comes in virtually every species from Oak, Maple, Hickory and other exotic species.
Engineered can be installed virtually anywhere, including basements, which are usually prone to moisture issues, It is a good choice for homes, condominiums and commercial spaces, basements and radiant heated areas.
