With diverse species, hardwood offers a unique richness and warmth. It is a classic flooring option that has great appeal and can increase a home’s worth. Most importantly, hardwood is lasting and durable and it can remain beautiful for a lifetime. At Cluff Carpet One Floor & Home we carry name brand hardwood flooring along with Carpet One Floor & Home exclusive brands.
Hardwood comes in a variety of species such as oak, maple, hickey, exotics, and more. We carry traditional options as well as modern options that are larger in size and appear weathered or rustic in style. Hardwood flooring is timeless and the unique knots and grains found in hardwood make it truly unique. Hardwood is best installed in rooms such as bedrooms, living rooms, and hallways.
Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood
Hardwood flooring is available in solid or engineered versions. Solid hardwood is considered the traditional hardwood option. It is a simple construction made from a single plank of wood with a finished, or unfinished, surface. Solid hardwood is a long-lasting option because most solid hardwood can be refinished a few times, depending on how thick the tongue is on the side of the plank. Engineered hardwood is made up of multiple real wood veneers pressed together, and the grains are cross-directional to give the plank more stability. The benefit of engineered hardwood is it resists changes in humidity and will not expand and contract as easily as solid hardwood. Let our flooring professionals help you determine which hardwood is best for your home.
