Hardwood floors give your home the elegance and timeless beauty.

Solid Wood Flooring
Available in pre-finished or unfinished, ¾” thick hardwood floors are the traditional floors that have been used in homes for centuries.  Boards come in varying lengths, typically from 2’ to 5’ long, to give you the elegant appearance you expect in a wood floor.  Solid wood floors can be sanded several times in their life, which explains why homes built in the 19th century often still have their original floors in service.

Engineered Wood Flooring
Engineered wood floors are made using layers of wood each turned 90 degrees to the previous layer to give you a strong wood floor that is much more dimensionally stable.  A top veneer of hardwood is applied as the wear surface, and many engineered floors have a surface thick enough to be sanded and re-finished.  Engineered floors are designed to be installed as a “floating floor,” so the boards are attached to each other, but not fastened to the sub-floor.  Floating floors are ideal to use over concrete, or in remodeling projects when particle board sub-flooring is discovered under old carpet.  For those who have environmental concerns, engineered floors use less of the premium hardwood typically used in solid wood floors.

Pre-finished vs. Jobsite Sanding and Finishing
There are so many varieties and stain colors of pre-finished floors today that you can almost certainly find one to meet your needs.  Pre-finished floors typically have between 5 and 8 coats of polyurethane applied, and in many cases have the addition of aluminum oxide to help minimize finish dulling in traffic lanes.  The beauty of pre-finished flooring is that it minimizes the amount of dust in your home, and reduces the odor of applying polyurethane on-sight.  Most pre-finished floors have a very slight beveled edge which is why some people choose to go the route of jobsite sanding and finishing to provide flooring that is sanded perfectly smooth.  If a particular stain color needs to be achieved, jobsite finishing allows the opportunity to arrive at the perfect color.

Re-finishing your Wood Floors
The beauty of polyurethane finishes on flooring today is that they can be re-surfaced without actually sanding away any wood.  Most wood floors can be screened and re-coated with polyurethane, which means that the surface is simply scuffed before the new finish is applied.  Of course, in the event of severe scratching, they generally can be re-sanded and finished to bring back their original beauty.
