Solid Wood vs. Engineered WoodThe two types of wood floors that you can install in your home or commercial property are solid hardwood and engineered wood. Each type has its own advantages, so ask the help of a professional when selecting the type of hardwood for your flooring project. The material must suit your needs and flooring requirements.
Among the two types of hardwood flooring, solid wood planks are still the best option. They are sturdy and can last for decades when properly maintained. The only downside is that they are not suited for moisture-rich areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. However, engineered wood flooring has also its own strengths. An engineered wood is more resistant to moisture and heat, faster to install, and priced lower than solid hardwood. However, only the tough wood varieties are used to create this type of flooring.
The Best Hardwood SpeciesThere's no doubt about the quality and durability of hardwood when used as a flooring material. However, you should still choose the right wood species to get the look and ambiance that you desire for your interior space. For example, the hardwood's color and grain can create a different mood or aesthetic effect in the interiors. Oak flooring, which is usually tan in color, is perfect for rustic-decor style and ideal for family home. Other color tones that would be great for your home include brown and natural/beige. You may also choose bold colors by opting for stained hardwood. Meanwhile, the wood varieties that are best used as hardwood flooring include red oak, maple, cherry, pine, beech, and hickory. Most leading flooring manufacturers offer these wood varieties.
Hardwood Flooring InstallationHardwood is an expensive flooring material. You must ensure that your chosen installer or contractor has the skills and experience in flooring installation projects. Don't just call a home improvement contractor in your locality. Choose a contractor who can expertly install hardwood flooring. If possible, hire a company that specializes in all types of flooring.
