Wood floors give any room a refined look. Traditional floors are sanded and finished on-site while prefinished wood is finished in the factory and ready to be installed. Solid is an all-wood plank, and the best planks are 3/4 inch thick. Engineered is also available and know that these are real wood floors. It is made up of a layer of plywood with a veneer of prefinished hardwood on top. Solid wood must be glued to the subfloor while engineered wood can be clicked and locked together to form a floating floor above the subfloor.
Woods range from very hard to exotic. In addition to oak, very hardwoods like maple and cherry are ideal flooring choices. Other available woods like walnut, bamboo, ash, and mahogany are also good options. More expensive exotic woods like jarrah, teak, and mesquite also look nice in a home. You have a choice of hand-scraped or distressed, matte, semi-gloss, and smooth surface finishes. While light wood tends to make a room look bigger, darker wood gives a room a more stylish look. This hard surface flooring:
- It is non-toxic; does not trap dust, mold spores, pet dander, and other allergens.
- Gives a room an appealing look since no two planks are alike.
- It is easy to refinish at any time to get a brand-new look.
- It is neutral in color so it goes with any room decor.
- It is durable, easy to clean and maintain.
- It lasts a lifetime.
