Comparisons in hardwood flooring for your consideration

Solid hardwood is most sought after for its elegant appearance and extended lifespan, which can easily reach or exceed 100 years with proper care. It’s durable, gives you the visual variety you might need and can be repaired, restored, and repeatedly refinished throughout its life.

Engineered wood flooring is still real wood, with a veneer of your choice of species on top, sealed with a protective wear layer. Beneath the veneer is plies of wood that create stability and help protect against moisture, dampness,humidity, and temperature changes that prevent solid wood from a below-grade installation.

Both materials offer various species, stain color, and finish options, with site-finished flooring offering a greater variety. When used together, each in its perfect placement, you’ll find excellent visual continuity throughout your home, even in basements and laundry rooms.

The installation process time can vary, depending on the materials and options you choose, but our professionals are experienced in both. We’ll make sure you know what’s going on through every step of the process, and the results are sure to please.
