Hardwood & Engineered Wood Flooring Systems

 

The style, warmth and elegant look of wood flooring in homes, commercial offices, restaurants, retail outlets, hotels & resorts creates a lasting impression in the minds of visitors, clients and associates. 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 5/16" to 3/4". One of the many benefits of solid wood flooring is that it can be sanded and refinished many times. Solid wood flooring can be installed above or on grade. Laminate wood floors are real wood floors that are manufactured using three to nine layers of different wood veneers. The sub layers can be of the same species, or of different species. 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. Laminate wood flooring can be installed above, on or below grade.

Wood flooring is easy to maintain, durable and easily refinished to accommodate the decor of the building. Also, if environmental and economical factors are important, then the use of bamboo and oak flooring are excellent considerations. Wood flooring is an excellent investment into the value of a residential or commercial property. It provides an excellent first impression, is easy to maintain and provides elegance and style.

 

 Hardwood

For prefinished hardwood flooring the obvious advantage is that of convenience. No sanding is required for this type of hardwood floors. Therefore, more time is saved on preparations' as well as the mess. Hardwood flooring involves both. Also, no time must be allowed for the finish on your flooring to dry.

 Laminate

 

Laminate flooring should not be confused with engineered wood flooring. Both are made of layers of material laminated together. Laminate floors use several materials compacted under pressure to create the final product. The flooring is made into planks. The surface of a laminate is actually an image printed from film onto a thin decorative layer which is then treated with a wear layer.

 Hand Scraped

 

Hand Scraped wood flooring pieces are individually hand scraped giving your floor a naturally worn appearance. No two planks will look alike. The terms "distressed" and "hand scraped" are sometimes used interchangeably but there is a difference. Distressed wood floors have a "beaten" appearance while "hand scraped" wood floors attempt to mimic a more naturally time worn look. 

 Distressed Factory distressed wood floors are worn and distressed by hand. Sometimes with the aid of a machine. This process gives your wood floor a well used look. Distressed wood floors help bring a warm, lived in, look to any room.
 Bamboo

 

Bamboo floors are made from actual stalks of bamboo. While bamboo looks like a tree in some cases, it is actually a hollow plant that regenerates much faster than wood. This help bamboo become the environmentally friendly flooring of choice. Bamboo flooring si extremely hard and is stronger than many hardwoods.

 Cork

 

Cork floors have been used in commercial areas for decades. Some advantages of cork floors are their durability, ability to reduce sound travel, ability to keep warmth and cold and the reduction of the presence of allergens. They are easy to care for and very comfortable under your feet. Technological advances have helped make cork become one of the most beautiful flooring materials available.
