Hardwood Flooring in Greensboro, NC


Bring the elegance of hardwood flooring to your Greensboro, North Carolina, home at Carpet One By Henry. 



For centuries, hardwood flooring has held its status as a beloved choice for flooring in North Carolina, renowned for its enduring beauty and strength. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, hardwood flooring contributes to the overall value of your property, making it a lasting investment. However, it's essential to consider specific factors, such as humidity, when determining if hardwood is the optimal choice for your home. Explore the various types of hardwood flooring and delve into the different factors in performance and longevity. When you're ready to make an informed decision, visit our Greensboro, NC showroom to explore our curated collection of hardwood flooring options!


Types of Hardwood Flooring


Hardwood flooring comes in various styles and colors that suit different design preferences, such as rustic farmhouse and mid-century modern. The diverse looks and colors stem from the different trees used for wood harvesting. Classic hardwood options like oak, maple, and walnut are timeless, while more exotic choices like cherry and mahogany bring a unique, luxurious feel to your floors. Each type of hardwood has its distinct grain, color, shine, and texture, and features like plank length and width contribute to the overall appearance. Oak in neutral and lighter tones remains a popular choice for its timeless appeal that complements various interior designs.



In the hardwood flooring market, two main types are solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Solid hardwood is the traditional, natural wood option, while engineered hardwood is a more enhanced wood composite. Each type has its pros and cons, influencing the decision-making process to determine which is the best choice for you:

How Does Humidity Affect Hardwood?


Living here in North Carolina, you are probably familiar with the drastic weather changes throughout our four seasons. Because Guilford County experiences true seasons, humidity issues are always at bay.  Therefore, we often have significant temperature changes throughout any given day—you could even use your heating & air conditioning on the same day! While this can make for annoyance, it can also cause real issues for your hardwood flooring. High and low moisture levels can cause solid hardwood floors to expand and contract which can result in warping and buckling. Solid hardwood flooring is not recommended for moisture-prone rooms like kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, since these rooms pose a greater risk for moisture-related issues. 


If you are still set on the look of hardwood in rooms like these and you don’t have climate control to maintain the moisture levels, consider engineered hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwood is designed with style and durability in mind. Thanks to manufacturing advancements, engineered hardwood can mimic the exact look of hardwood flooring while improving upon it by making it water-resistant. This means that you can enjoy the look of hardwood without the worry of warping or buckling due to excess moisture!

Our local flooring store is up for any hardwood flooring project of any size or scope, often the go-to store for complicated jobs that other companies are not willing to tackle. This is especially true when we finish your hardwood flooring installation with a gorgeous custom area rug or stair runner.
