Hardwood Flooring

Hardwoods come from deciduous trees and are noted for their weight and durability.

 

 

 


Typical hardwoods are oak, walnut, maple, mahogany, cherry, and teak.

You’ll find a great variety of colors and styles.

Solid woods are most commonly ¾” thick.  They come unfinished when installed and are later sanded, stained, and sealed.

Solid woods also come prefinished, which increases cost.

Prefinished woods have the advantage of being a one-step installation process.

These are normally nailed into place, not an option for a concrete slab floor.

Engineered wood (layered) can have the same good look of solid wood.

It usually comes prefinished and is glued down, making it a good choice for slab floors.
