Hardwood

With a little basic understanding about the different types of wood floors you can be better prepared and more confident in your selection. Solid wood floors are approved for above ground-level installations only, as they perform better in humidity-controlled environments.Is your sub floor concrete or a type of wood substrate? Engineered floors are ideal for concrete slabs. 


Solid Wood Floors

Hardwood

These floors are one solid piece of wood and are generally 3/4" thick and available in several widths. Because solid hardwood floors are more vulnerable to humidity and temperature changes than engineered wood floors, they should only be installed above grade, over approved wooden subfloors. Solid wood floors can generally be recoated and refinished several times.

Engineered Wood Floors

Engineered

These floors are produced by laminating several hardwood plies together to form the planks. Engineered wood floors have cross-ply construction, which reduces the expansion and contraction of planks caused by changes in humidity, so they can be installed on any level of the home.
