The different styles of hardwood are characterized by features such as plank length and width, wood grains, color, shine, and even texture. The different hardwood options include maple, cherry, oak, and birch, among others.



What is The Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?

Often times, homeowners are unaware that there is a difference between types of hardwood floors. Solid hardwood is just one piece of wood that has a finished surface, whereas engineered hardwood is multiple real-wood veneers cross-pressed together with a finished surface. Both feature special benefits that can improve the functionality of your home.  Depending on the room you are installing your floors, speak with one of our professionals about which would be the best fit for your home.



Hardwood Maintenance

When properly taken care of, hardwood floors can last a long time and are very easy to clean. Remember, hardwood is not a waterproof option, so be sure to clean spills up right away to avoid water damage. Hardwood is also allergy friendly, because there is no place for dust or dirt to hide and harmful allergens to thrive.
