The elegant look of a hardwood floor can add warmth and character to a room. Hardwood is not only beautiful but they are easy to take care of and can add value to your home at resale time. Wood is available in several widths and finishes. There are basically 2 types of wood; Solid and Engineered.
Solid is a solid piece of wood from top to bottom. Solid wood is more susceptible to humidity and temperature changes and should only be installed above grade over approved wooden subfloors.
Engineered wood has a cross-ply construction which reduces the expansion/contraction of planks caused by variations in humidity. As a result of the layers which run in different directions it is very stable. Engineered wood can be installed on any level in the home.
