Wood Flooring Contractors In Your Area

Hardwood floors have unmatched natural beauty that go with any decor from country and traditional to modern and eclectic. Once you've decided you want to install wood flooring, the next step is to figure out what type you want to install.

Do you choose unfinished or finished? Unfinished is a good option if you want to apply a custom stain or match existing flooring. It's also ideal for installing in kitchens because the finish penetrates and seals the seams between boards, helping prevent water from seeping in. Prefinished wood, on the other hand, makes the job go much quicker and there are no odors or VOCs from applying stain on-site.

Should you go with solid or engineered flooring? Solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished many times. However, it is very susceptible to changes in humidity. Engineered hardwood is much more stable over time, but it generally can only be sanded and refinished once or twice.

What species do you want? Oak, maple, and cherry are all good choices because they are readily available and hard. Bamboo, walnut, ash, and mahogany are also popular choices. If you're looking for more exotic species, be prepared to pay extra. These include teak, jarrah, and mesquite.
