One of the common myths about hardwood flooring is that it is expensive. Because hardwood floors are extremely durable their need for replacement is virtually non-existent. Since adding a hardwood floor to your home also increases its appraisal value, the decision to go with hardwood flooring becomes more of an investment than a purchase. Whether replacing old wood floors or installing them for the first time, hardwood floors are sure to last for many decades to come. Therefore, it is important to carefully choose the species, color, style, width and placing of your floor.
When deciding on authentic hardwood flooring options, you have one of two choices:
Solid Wood Flooring:
Solid wood flooring is made up of one single solid piece of wood throughout. It can be refinished and sanded again and again and can be installed either on or above grade.
Engineered Hardwood Flooring:
Engineered hardwood floors are produced by combining two or more woods or wood composite boards. The boards each have a grain that extends throughout different directions, which helps provide solidity. This feature helps the wood to withstand contractions and expansions as the temperature rises and falls. Whether or not you will be able to refinish and sand down your engineered hardwood flooring again is dependent on how thick the top layer of the board is. Due to the durability this type of material offers, it can be installed on, below or above grade.
Once you decide to go with either solid or engineered hardwood floors, choosing between unfinished or factory finished wood will be your next step. Factory finished wood does not take as long to install because the finishing and sanding has already been completed. All that is left to do with a factory finish wood is have it installed. Unfinished wood flooring on the contrary has not been finished and sanded. This means that once the planks have been installed, both the sanding and finish will have to be applied. This process tends to be more time consuming, but is a good option for anyone who needs to match their new flooring to existing floors or those who want to achieve a certain color.
