Hardwood Guide

Solid Hardwood

Solid Hardwood has been around the longest as such the most popular. Solid Hardwood is milled from 100% lumber making it a natural product. Due to the single component of solid hardwood it is susceptible to environmental conditions where climate must be controlled. Therefore this hardwood is not recommended for moist areas or buildings that are not heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer.

Engineered Hardwood

Engineered wood flooring is built up of layers of ply type wood. It consists of multiple layers sandwiched together with glue, with a layer of hardwood ontop. This multi-ply structure gives engineered wood better stability, which reduces concerns associated with shrinking and expanding when temperature and humidity change, giving engineered the versatility of being installed below grade.

Ecological and Natural

In choosing hardwood you are choosing a completely sustainable product. With strict environmental regulations manufactures are now forced to maintain and replenish the treed areas they are harvesting their wood from, therefore helping the environment by replanting additional trees into the environment.

Endless Choices and Quality

There are endless choices of stain colours, species of wood, board sizes and styles of hardwood. Due to the popularity of hardwood the manufactures are working hard to turn out a quality product backed by their substantial warranties.

Health Benefits

Health benefits can also be a factor for those considering hardwood flooring. Hardwood does not trap dust or gather mildew like carpets. Hardwood floors are softer underfoot than tiles as well. Making them a premium choice for any home.

Natural Beauty

The beauty of hardwood has the ability to enhance the decor of any room in your home as well as increase the value of the entire house.
