Hardwood flooring comes in many looks and colors that complement a variety of styles like rustic farmhouse and mid-century modern. Hardwood flooring comes in so many style and color variations thanks to the variety of trees the wood is harvested from. More traditional hardwood floors include oak, maple, walnuts, and more. For a more exotic look, cherry and mahogany are unique, rich hardwood flooring options. Every type of hardwood has its unique grain, color, shine, and texture, and features like plank length and width can play into the overall look of hardwood. In addition to this, there are two main types of hardwood flooring on the market solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Solid hardwood is your traditional, natural wood option, and engineered is an engineered piece of wood. Each has its pros and cons that factor into which is the right choice for you.

Living here in North Carolina, you are probably familiar with the drastic weather changes throughout our four seasons. The various swings in humidity can even happen in a matter of hours and 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 control 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.
As with all flooring installations, proper installation of hardwood flooring ensures proper performance and longevity. Aside from moisture, a rushed or incorrect installation can cause your hardwood floors to not look or perform their best, even causing improper wear. Worse, some damages caused by improper installation may not be covered under your manufacturer’s warranty.
