The opportunity to choose hardwood flooring is a dream come true for many homeowners. The elegance this floor covering adds to your home, and in addition to the wide variety of benefits it has to offer, makes it an excellent choice. Some choose this flooring solely for the lifespan alone, and it’s easy to see why. Though a little more expensive to start with, it could easily be the last floor covering you ever have installed.

Solid hardwood flooring offers you plenty of options, and you’ll want to go over the details of each one with your flooring professional. For instance, you’ll need to choose a wood species suitable to the traffic levels in your home; a stain color that will complement your décor; and a finish that brings everything together for the perfect flooring.
In addition to solid wood, you’ll also have the option to choose engineered wood as well. Since solid wood floors cannot be installed in below grade spaces, engineered is the option that can provide you with the continuity you need. For instance, if you have solid hardwood throughout your home, you could use engineered for your basement space.
Engineered flooring is still considered wood flooring, as it uses a veneer of solid wood layered expertly between a backing material, and a protective top layer. It does not react to moisture, humidity, and temperature changes in the same way solid wood does, so it’s a much safer alternative. At the same time, it still offers the same beauty, elegance, and authenticity you have in other areas. Engineered flooring can even be refinished, at least once, depending upon the thickness of the wood layer. Hardwood floors will easily last for decades, and in some cases can reach or exceed a century of use. Walking into any historical building will tell you, these floors can really stand the test of time.
