Solid and Engineered Hardwood
Hardwood flooring is available in solid and engineered constructions. Solid hardwood is the more traditional option because it features a simple construction. Engineered hardwood however, features a modern layered construction, so the planks are more dimensionally stable than solid planks. Solid hardwood should be installed on and above grade such as bedrooms and living rooms. Engineered hardwood can be installed on every level of your home, but still needs to be out of areas with high moisture.

Solid hardwood flooring features unmatched characteristics no other flooring can replicate and adds value to any room you install it in. Engineered hardwood features a modern layered construction which is made up of 3 to 7 layers of real wood veneers that are pressed together cross-grain and topped off with a premium piece of hardwood on the surface. This construction makes the planks more stable and able to withstand foot traffic and occasional moisture. Engineered hardwood can be refinished just like solid hardwood to extend its life cycle.

Did you know that there are a variety of hardwood styles from which you can choose? There are modern and traditional hardwood flooring options, as well as rustic hardwood flooring options that emphasize wood's natural character. The different styles of hardwood are characterized by features such as plank length and width, wood grains, colour, shine, and even texture.
Currently the most popular hardwood trend continues to be rustic, weather-worn wood. Manufacturers are taking advantage of technology that allows them to take fresh lumber and transform it into rustic, time-worn planks. Rustic hardwood flooring is a popular choice among homeowners and is the perfect addition to a home with décor that follows both modern trends and also homes that lean more towards country style home décor.
Our flooring experts and designers will help you choose the hardwood style that best fits into your overall home decor.
Types of Wood
The types of hardwood flooring are not limited to style of construction, but they also differ by wood species. The different hardwood options include maple, cherry, oak, and birch, among others. Each wood option offers unique shades and character, and they also feature different strength levels and wear resistance.
