Things to keep in mind when shopping for hardwood:
- You have a choice: solid or engineered wood floors. A solid wood floor is the same classic look as when your grandparents grew up. For over 100 years, solid hardwood has been among the most popular floor styles.
- Perfect for remodeling, engineered hardwood floors are assembled from multiple layers of hardwood, bonded together in a cross-grain fashion. This makes engineered floors exceptionally strong and durable. Engineered floors can be installed over most sub-floors including concrete.
- Hardwood floors come in the traditional width of 2 ¼" and the new, contemporary widths of 3″-5″. With either choice, you're getting the styling and durability you desire.
- If you have hardwood currently in your home, generally it is wise to stay with the same width, but again, it is a matter of your personal taste…because your home deserves the very best!
