Properly placed and installed, your hardwood flooring will grace your home for decades to come, beautifying your property and standing the test of time. Are you dreaming in hardwood? With our hot summers and freezing winters, it’s essential to choose your hardwood carefully, but not to worry: West Point Carpet One Floor & Home in Greeley, CO, is your destination for better hardwood flooring choices.
Hardwood flooring can be integrated into virtually any style scenario.
There are rustic, weathered planks for those who prefer vintage charms, as well as sleek, lean, and high-gloss hardwoods that lend well to contemporary styles.
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. Whatever your tastes are, there’s sure to be hardwood flooring that fits right in.
Each hardwood species has unique traits and will vary in price, hardness levels, and appearance. Our experts can help you make sensible selections based on your budget, preferences, and activity levels.
Engineered hardwood flooring is made up of 3 to 7 layers of real wood veneers and a surface layer of premium wood. This layered construction prevents the wood from expanding or contracting from humidity. It also creates stability, so the planks handle daily activity. Engineered hardwood flooring is more affordable and durable than solid hardwood. It can be installed on all levels of your home, including in finished basements.
Solid hardwood flooring has a simplistic construction that allows the natural characteristics of the planks to stand out. Solid hardwood is beautiful and can help to add real estate value to your home but is limited in where you can install it. It should be kept in dry, cool spaces of your home that do not see much foot traffic, like a bedroom or home office. Solid hardwood flooring can also be refinished to extend its life in your home.
We recommend installing hardwood in areas where there isn't major moisture or heavy foot traffic. Solid hardwood can be installed in most bedrooms and living rooms. Engineered hardwood flooring can handle busier homes and can be used below grade, and other spaces where solid wood isn’t suitable. Be sure to work with one our hardwood experts to make an appropriate choice.
We often pore over weather forecasts, but what’s your interior forecast looking like? If you plan to install hardwood, it’s time to pay closer attention to what’s happening under your roof. Hardwood flooring requires a consistent interior climate to keep it at its best. Extreme cold, heat, or humidity can make for shrinking, swelling, or damaged planks: none of which is conducive to a beautiful home.
Fortunately, it’s easy to avoid these pitfalls with a bit of help from our experts. Keeping a consistent relative humidity level of 42 percent is easy to do using helpful home accessories like humidistats and hydrometers. Other appliances, like air conditioners and insulated drapes, can further assist you in this ongoing goal.
