Hardwood flooring is popular in homes because it can add style, luxury, and value. However, we only recommend installing hardwood in areas where there isn't moisture or heavy foot traffic. Hardwood, for example, can be installed in most bedrooms and living rooms. There are some durable wood flooring options that can handle busier homes, but be sure to work with one our hardwood experts to make an appropriate choice.
An abundance of choices is the name of the game when it comes to hardwood flooring, with new varieties regularly being introduced to the market.

Solid vs Engineered Hardwood
Common concerns have inspired hardwood flooring for modern times. That’s why today’s shoppers are encountering two types of hardwood flooring families - the innovative and newer engineered hardwood and the traditional solid hardwood. While both types of hardwood have a similar look and feel, there’s more to hardwood flooring than meets the eye.
Solid hardwood is made of solid wood plank – the original hardwood flooring. This type of hardwood typically adores vintage construction, as it’s been known to stand strong for decades and even centuries. Solid hardwood is fully restorable and can be repeatedly refinished. It does not, however, fare well in spaces that fall below grade. It’s also incompatible with wetter environments.
A modern answer to some of the above dilemmas, engineered hardwood can be installed below grade, and boasts some water resistance. Crafted in multiple wooden layers, engineered hardwood tends to be sturdier, while it’s also more affordable. It can also be installed below grade. You’ll often encounter this innovative flooring in finished basements, where it can even be refinished once or twice over its lifespan.
