Types of Hardwood Floors


  - Solid Flooring: All wood flooring, regardless of width or length, that is one piece of wood from top to bottom is considered solid flooring. Solid flooring gives you great opportunity for customization. We can help you make choices on species, stains, and finishes that will all contribute to the personalization of your solid floor. This is an excellent choice in most areas of a home on the ground level or above.

  - Engineered Flooring: This hardwood flooring product consists of layers of wood pressed together with a solid wood veneer on its surface. Because the grains run in different directions, engineered floors are dimensionally very stable. This type of flooring can be glued, nailed, or floated over concrete slabs. 

  - Acrylic Impregnated Flooring: This wood flooring undergoes a process where acrylics are compressed throughout the body of the wood itself, creating a super-hard, extremely durable floor. This type of flooring is often used in commercial installations, however, can be right at home in busy households as well.
 


Styles of Hardwood Floors 


  - Strip Flooring Strip flooring is linear flooring that is usually 2 1/4", 1 1/2",  3 1/4" 4' or 5' wide. It creates a linear effect in a room often promoting the illusion of a larger space.  

  - Plank Flooring:  Plank flooring is also linear, however, it is wider in width. Common widths of plank flooring range from 3-5 inches, although certain species can be milled up to 10 inches.

  - Parquet Flooring:  Parquet flooring is a series of wood flooring pieces that create some form of geometric design. There are endless possibilities for customization of a parquet floor.
