There's just something special about a hardwood floor that brings a room together. All the things that personalize your home are somehow even more beautiful reflected on a hardwood floor. Even your not-so-beautiful furnishings are transformed as well. Maybe it's the old sofa that suddenly takes on a relaxed charm, or the inherited end table that is now quaint instead of clunky. Hardwood flooring simply makes your home look great!
For natural beauty, it's hard to beat the warmth of hardwood flooring. And since technical advances have improved durability you can expect to enjoy many years of great beauty and performance. The investment in wood also pays dividends when it comes time to sell your property. Hardwood flooring appreciates the value of your home.
Hardwood Flooring Styles
Generally, hardwood flooring comes in 4 basic constructions:
• 3/4" Solid Hardwood
3/4" Solid Hardwood
These floors are recommended for above-grade installation only and must be nailed to subfloor
Engineered and Longstrip
These hardwood floors can be installed on any level of the home, including the basement if moisture isn't present. They can be glued, floated, or stapled down to most subfloors.
This floor works best above grade and generally comes in standard-sized panels and tiles.
An unseen, but important consideration for any of these floors is that they can be sanded and refinished if they become severely scratched and dull from years of wear and tear. Ask your Floor Network professional about specific product warranties on our hardwood flooring!
