Why Choose Hardwood?

The grain and construction of the wood are two important factors to consider when choosing a hardwood floor.

Character: Naturally present in hardwood, grain variations help determine a wood’s style. Dramatic grain variations will produce a rustic style. Moderate grain variations are present in traditional woods. For a sleek, contemporary look, choose a select hardwood with very little color variation.

Construction: Solid or engineered, the construction of your hardwood can help determine where your floors should be placed. Solid is created from a single piece of wood that makes a beautiful floor that lasts for years. Engineered is made from several layers of wood and is designed to withstand higher levels of humidity so it can be placed in different areas of the home.

Solid wood is just that – one piece that is milled from lumber. It comes in a variety of widths, from 2-1/4″ to 5″ wide. It also comes in different thicknesses: 3/4″ is standard, but you can also find “thin profile” solid that is 5/16″ thick
