Hardwood floors suit Washington homes

Are you trying to decide on a suitable flooring? Hardwood floors are a great choice, and they last for decades. They bring elegance and style to your rooms. Plus, it's an investment that raises the value of your property. Let's talk about it in detail.

Solid or engineered wood flooring?

There are two types of hardwood floors, engineered or solid. Solid floors have the same thickness of wood throughout the plank. Engineered wood has a slice of the desired wood on top, but underneath it has thick pieces of wood in crosshatch layers. On top, you have the species wood with its swirls and grain, and underneath wood fixed together by resin. Engineered floors have a higher capability to stand moisture so that they can go in areas like basements. Solid wood wouldn’t be a good choice for basements because they can warp under the humidity. Engineered wood flooring can be refinished to preserve its look, and it adds to the property value the same as solid wood floors.

With installation, you have a solid wood that will be sanded, sealed, stained, and finished at the job site. With engineered wood flooring, it is different. The engineered wood will be handled at the factory, with the sanding, sealing, and staining. So there is less of an installation time with engineered wood. You can still mix and match it in your home.

Wood floors look fantastic

Hardwood floors come in a wide variety of species, colors, and styles. There are hundreds of species to choose from; however, the most popular you will find is hickory, oak, cherry, maple, and walnut. Each species has its look to it with the way the grain looks. Like cherry and maple, walnut and oak have a straight grain, while others have burls and curls in their grains. There are exotic woods that come from Africa, Brazil, and Indonesia that you might consider as well. You can choose from any wood, or stain, or design.
