Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
There are many benefits to installing hardwood in your home. First, it adds value to your home by giving it a more sophisticated appeal. Hardwood floors even offer noise reduction in comparison to stone or tile flooring, and are much warmer when you walk on them. They are also an allergy friendly option because there is nowhere for dust to hide or get trapped. Although hardwood is an investment, it pays for itself when you receive countless compliments on your home, and buyers are looking for higher end flooring. Hardwood is long lasting and can be refinished to stay up-to-date on the latest flooring trends.

What is The Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?
Solid hardwood is, just as its name describes, one solid piece of wood from top to bottom. The thickness of the plank usually varies, and it performs best when installed above or on grade, and can even be sanded and refinished. Engineered hardwood floors are made of multiple real wood veneers whose grains run in different directions in order to increase stability. This allows the floors to resist expanding and contracting during weather changes. These planks can also be refinished to extend their life in your home. They best perform installed in above, on and below grade so you can enjoy them on every level of your home! Learn more about solid and engineered hardwood:
