Hardwood flooring options

There are many options when it comes to hardwood flooring. You may not be aware of all of them, so we’ve put together a list to help you familiarize yourself with your options:
  • Prefinished: Hardwood receives the finish and staining in a factory-controlled setting during manufacturing. It is cured with ultraviolet light, making it very durable, easy to install, and high quality.
  • Unfinished: Hardwood is shipped directly from the factory in a completely natural state. After the hardwood boards are installed, they’re sanded, finished, and stained. No edge treatments are available, except "to square."
  • Reclaimed: Hardwood recycled from older homes or buildings that are then refinished and used as flooring. Much of the reclaimed wood comes from beams and framing materials.
  • Veneer: Also known as engineered hardwood, it has a core that is composed of several layers, all cross-grained, to make it less susceptible to shrinking or expanding. Veneer can be installed in many rooms where solid hardwood is not an option.
  • Laminate: Constructed with four layers: A wear-layer, design layer, inner core, and backing layer. When fused together, a durable flooring is created that is stunning to the eye. Laminate is easy to install and a more affordable option than solid hardwood.
  • Parquet: The only hardwood that comes in tile-sized pieces that are easy to manage and easy to glue down. Parquet is hard to sand, as the wood grain runs in many different directions.This type of flooring is artistic by nature, often forming a mosaic that can appear to be three-dimensional at times. However, parquet is considered to be an "acquired taste" by many.
  • Solid: Just as the name dictates, solid hardwood is one solid piece of wood. The advantages to this type of flooring include the ability to work with different sized pieces, durability, strength, and beauty. Disadvantages include the inability to put the type of flooring in areas where water damage is a possibility.
