Hardwood Flooring. Tuesday , February 20th , 2018 - 02:45:10 AM
"Solid" hardwood flooring is traditionally cut from a log in an unfinished plank form with tongue and groove milled on all sides. Ranging from 5/16" to ¾" in thickness, "solid" floors are typically available in various widths and lengths. Due to the sensitivity of natural "solid" hardwood from humidity and moisture, natural solid wood floors are normally installed at or above ground level. The natural beauty of wood grains found in solid hardwoods is both appealing and alluring with finishes that may be completed upon installation in the home or factory finished with a pre-determined choice of unlimited finishes to select from.
Engineered wood flooring is an alternative to solid hardwood flooring embraced by more and more interior professionals. This type of flooring is a sandwich of finish wood and plywood. The finish wood is what you see and walk on; underneath it is the plywood that comprises about 80 to 90% of the engineered wood flooring each giving dimensional strength to the sandwich.
Many varieties of exotic wood floors are photosensitive, so avoid leaving them unprotected in direct sunlight as they may change color over time. Close curtains and blinds when possible and use rugs in areas that could be affected.
