Deciding Where to Install Your Hardwood
What level of the home will the wood be installed? If you want to do the basement, or anything below ground level, you will need to go with an engineered wood. Engineered wood is 100% natural and is sliced thinly into several cross sections. The pieces are laid at a 90-degree angle from the previous piece. This assures that once the wood is laid, it will not be able to expand and contract with the changes in moisture most commonly associated with basements and spaces below ground level.
Harder Woods vs. Softer Woods
Consider what type of wear you want to see on your floor. Some woods are very soft and will dent and scratch easily. If you are looking for a more durable wood that is more resistant to animal nails, stiletto heels, or general wear and tear you will want a harder wood. A textured finish is also a good option for masking most common wear while creating a certain aesthetic in your home.
Choosing Wood Construction
Decide the type of wood construction that best suits your tastes. There are generally four types to choose from, and we have a large sampling of each one. They include: 3/4 Solid Hardwood Flooring (Unfinished or Pre-finished), Engineered Wood (Unfinished or Pre-finished), Longstrip Wood Planks (Pre-finished), or Parquet Tiles.
