Everyone loves wood floors
! They add warmth, charm, and richness to your home, are classic, and never go out of style. These floors are also versatile, fitting into any style, and add value to your property. When shopping, consider the following factors.
Solid hardwood is, as it sounds, one thickness throughout, but engineered wood flooring is a layered construction. At the top is hickory, oak, maple, or whatever species you choose, giving you undertones, knots, grains, and swirls. Underneath are three or more genuine wood layers, combined with a little resin, and then placed in a crosswise position. As a result, these floors have more stability, a better ability to handle water, and can be placed in any grade level, including basements. Like solid, they can be sanded and refinished and add value to a property.
