Hardwood flooring facts you should know

A great hardwood floor for your own home starts with the perfect species. Species vary according to hardness, ranging from very soft to very hard. The harder the species, the more foot traffic, and activity they can handle. Softer species are better left for very low traffic areas or the flooring in pantries and closets. Your flooring professional will be able to help you choose a species that will be perfect for each space you need to be floored.

It’s important to note that solid wood floors can never be installed in below-ground spaces. If you have a room like this, you should speak with your flooring specialist about engineered hardwood flooring, which can be an invaluable alternative. Instead of being solid wood, it is a wood veneer that is attached to a backing material and covered with a protective wear layer.

In addition to choosing a great species for your home, you can also choose site finished or prefinished materials, grain patterns, plank widths and a method of installation that will best suit the needs of your home. Don’t forget that hardwood flooring must acclimate to your home, so this must be factored in if you are on a timed schedule for installation.
