Hardwood Flooring is an investment you can count on. A quality hardwood floor isn’t just an aesthetic investment; it also helps boost a home’s selling price. Hardwood flooring comes in two varieties: engineered and solid.
Solid is the most common choice and best suited for higher-grade installations. It consists of one-piece boards that are generally nailed to a sub-floor. Most are unfinished, thereby allowing customers, the hardwood flooring supplier or distributor to apply a variety of colors and finishes.
Engineered hardwood is comprised of two or more layers of wood that have been laminated together, the top being a veneer and the bottom a softer wood backing. The top wood veneer comes pre-finished and the overall system gets glued to the subfloor or even concrete, making it better-suited for below-grade and basement installations.
