When you install hardwood flooring, you’ll begin to see the many benefits it has to offer. First, it adds value to your home because it is seen as an investment. Hardwood floors also offer noise reduction in comparison to stone or tile flooring, and are warmer underfoot and more forgiving when walked on. They are also known to be allergy friendly because there is nowhere for dust to hide or get trapped. Hardwood is also long lasting, and can be refinished to stay up-to-date on the latest flooring trends.

Types of Hardwood

When it comes to choosing a new hardwood floor, you have several options to pick from. One of those options is the type of hardwood you want. Hardwood is available in solid and engineered constructions.

Solid hardwood is known as the traditional hardwood floor and features a simple construction. Solid hardwood floors are usually thick and can be refinished. A benefit of installing solid hardwood in your home is that it features unmatched style and characteristics so it not only adds style to your space but also value. Engineered hardwood is made up of several different layers of real wood veneers with a top layer of premium hardwood. This construction makes the planks more stable and can handle more day-to-day activity.
