If you’re looking for new hardwood flooring, then you are in luck. While there are many different options, it doesn’t have to be a complicated process. One way to help make a decision is to work with the experts that you know you can trust.
Engineered hardwood flooring is gaining popularity with homeowners everywhere. While it has a counterpart in solid hardwood flooring, engineered hardwood is far more versatile. Many layers of wood are combined to create something new. Glue is used to hold all the wood together. This is different from solid hardwood floors, which are crafted from a single plank of wood instead. Plus, this means that the hardwood is incredibly stable. While it’s easy to assume that this isn’t significant, it is. That’s because the wood will be able to withstand higher levels of foot traffic. Foot traffic probably isn’t much of a problem unless you have a large family. But during the holidays, it can be more of an issue than usual.
Another option is to choose floating hardwood instead. What separates this technique apart from others is that it isn’t anchored to the subfloor. Solid hardwood floors need to be attached to the subfloor of your home, but floating hardwood doesn’t need to be. You have another decision to make here, though. You can either choose laminate flooring or engineered wood for use in this way. Then there is some padding added. The padding is necessary because it can repel moisture damage and help make the floorboards quieter. The subfloor also receives more cushioning. Even though this type of flooring is relatively easy to install, it’s still a good idea to lean on the experts to get the job done.
Acrylic hardwood is something that you might not have heard of before. That’s because this flooring is far more commonly used in commercial buildings than in residential dwellings. Acrylic materials are injected directly into the wood, which is a process called impregnation. The wood floor then becomes even more durable than before. That way, the hallways inside your home or commercial building can be protected against high levels of foot traffic.
