There is a lot of buzz about Hardwood flooring lately!
The Hardwood Flooring options have expanded over the years to accommodate customer needs. We are no longer held to the same building condition, restrictions and requirements of traditional Hardwood Plank Flooring.
You’re probably asking yourself, why are there so many options and how do I navigate the choices?
Made from real hardwood lumber, unlike Luxury Vinyl Plank(LVP, SPC, or WPC) that is made up of a printed image adhered to a man-made Stone Plastic or Wood Plastic Composite plank or tile core to imitate a hardwood style flooring.
Made from a solid piece of hardwood lumber that has been cut down to hardwood planks.
There are no additional veneers adhered to the surface or the underside of the plank.
Made from real hardwood lumber that has been cut down to a veneer sized layer that is then used as a hardwood surface layer adhered to an additional bottom plank.
It’s important to note that the construction of the bottom plank can vary greatly. You will most often see a multi-ply plywood, or even smaller solid planks
of hardwood that are running horizontally across the back of the hardwood veneer layer.
Engineered Hardwood has gained in popularity in the flooring industry for good reason. With the engineered bottom plank being created and constructed to add stability and
prevent expansion and distortion over time, manufacturers have been able to increase the width and length of hardwood flooring that might not otherwise be a suitable profile for flooring use.
Made from real hardwood lumber that has been cut down to a veneer sized layer and is adhered to a man-made rigid core plank.
A newly emerging flooring product that has been adding quite some confusion to the line up. The man-made rigid core plank can vary in construction and is often a Stone Plastic Composite plank.
Best explained as a Vinyl Plank with a real wood veneer instead of a printed image like traditional vinyl floor.

Hardwood flooring, like all surface materials, requires regular care and maintenance. Here are some tips to help preserve the beauty of your wood floor:
1. Sweep or vacuum your floor. Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar.
2. Use an approved hardwood floor cleaner, such as Bona, on a regular basis. Using a non recommended cleaner can cause build-up and/or dull the finish. Contact a professional if you have any questions regarding a cleaning product.
3. Do not wet mop your hardwood floor and be sure to clean up any liquid spills immediately.
4. Use rugs at all exterior doorways to prevent dirt and grit from being tracked onto the floor.
5. Keep pet’s nails trimmed.
6. Apply felt pads to the undersides of furniture.
7. Do not slide furniture across the floor.
8. Be aware that high heels can dent the floor; especially if the bottom of the heel is in need of repair.
Your hardwood floor is a big investment. And with proper maintenance, you can be sure you will enjoy the return on that investment for many years to come.
Depending on dimensions of the space and amount of detailed work, it takes from a week to a 2-3 weeks to complete most floor renovation projects.
The total budget may vary as the size of the space and details of every flooring project are different. For example, an approximate budget for a basic living room flooring renovation is about $1,000 to $3,000.
