Types of Flooring

Which type of flooring is right for you?

Unfinished Wood Flooring

We start with unfinished wood flooring, and we sand the wood and apply the finish on the job site. We can help you choose from many finish options. Also, we can stain the wood a variety of colors, so if you are looking for a specific color, or need to match an existing floor, this option may better suit your needs.

Factory Finished

Also available for purchase is factory-finished wood flooring, where the finish was applied at the manufacturer. These floors require less time to install because the sanding and finishing process has already taken place. The floors are ready to walk on immediately following the installation.

Solid Wood Flooring

Solid wood flooring is exactly what the name implies: a solid piece of wood from top to bottom. The thickness of solid wood flooring can vary, but generally ranges from 3/4" to 5/16”. One of the many benefits of solid wood flooring is that it can be sanded and refinished many times

 

Engineered Wood Flooring

Engineered wood floors are real wood floors that are manufactured using multiple layers of different wood veneers. The grain of each layer runs in different directions, which makes it very stable. This means that the wood will expand and contract less than solid wood flooring during fluctuations in humidity and temperature. The top layer of engineered wood flooring consists of high-quality wood. While this type of flooring can be sanded and finished, it cannot be done as many times as solid wood flooring.

Laminate Flooring

A laminate floor consists of boards that feature a printed picture designed to mimic the look of real wood. A layer of protective clear coating that adds protection from scratching, denting, and staining also exists on top of the board. It looks like real hardwood without the cost, and it is available in a number of different styles to match your desired look.
