Hardwood flooring might be a new concept for some people. At Millworks Flooring, we want you to be familiar with all your options when it comes to flooring. That’s why we wish to share a little bit with you today about this amazing flooring choice.
Hardwood flooring is a great way to bring the rustic look of real solid hardwood into your home. All the while, you won’t have the worry of constant maintenance, or the need to have it refinished should it become scuffed, scratched or dented.
While you’ll get away from a lot of the extra work associated with solid hardwood flooring, you can still benefit from the luxurious look. In fact, the top layer of most hardwood flooring is simply a thinner strip of real wood. Underneath the real wood layer is a base that consists of plywood, which is generally twice as dimensionally stable compared to solid hardwood flooring.
As with natural hardwood, you get a variety of choices when it comes to wood species. Choose from species such as white oak, birch, hickory, small leaf acacia and more.
Having your engineered hardwood flooring installed is a much easier process than installing solid hardwood. This is primarily so, because you have a wider range of methods for installation. Choose from staple down, glue down or floating, and install above, on or below grade.
If you’re concerned about a finish, you don’t have to worry. Millworks engineered hardwood flooring comes prefinished. This alleviates the need for an extra service once the installation is complete, thereby saving you even more money.
