Hardwood Types

hardwood flooring Rock Springs, WY

There are a lot of good reasons why wood flooring remains so popular. One of the main draws is that wood is natural, so it has a unique and luxurious appearance. Also, wood flooring is available in a wide range of textures and styles, and many homeowners love the fact that, given the unique pattern and grain of every tree, no two wood floors look quite the same. A wood floor is a bit like a thumbprint, something that sets your home apart from every other home in the world.

Many homeowners select hardwood for its traditional appearance and feel. This style of wood flooring provides a sense of warmth, a nostalgic appearance, and a homey, inviting atmosphere.

Hardwood is divided between solid and engineered flooring. Solid hardwood flooring is built from a single, genuine strip of natural wood, while engineered hardwood is comprised of multiple layers of wood pressed together (usually three to seven layers). One isn't necessarily considered to be better than the other, but they both have their advantages. Engineered hardwood, for instance, is more dimensionally stable, whereas solid hardwood is able to withstand more refinishes than engineered hardwood.
