Hardwood Advantages:

  • Timeless - Hardwood floors are classic. They maintain their beauty and popularity for hundreds of years and can be re-stained and refinished as color trends change.
  • Durable - Though it is possible to scratch hardwood, it can be refinished. All wood flooring will last years, and certain types like engineered white oak flooring that are harder will last even longer.
  • Maintenance - Maintenance includes sweeping, light mopping with vinegar and water, and cleaning big spills quickly so they don’t penetrate the wood. For long-term maintenance, it is recommended to sand out scratches and refinish every ten years.
  • Value - Hardwood does come with a steeper price tag upfront than laminate or vinyl flooring , but will yield a larger return on investment than other floorings. It holds its value better over time.
  • Sustainable - A tree is planted for every tree cut down to create hardwood flooring. By using a resource that is renewable instead of ultimately spent and gone, you can do your part for the environment while also getting beautiful flooring.
  • Warmth - Not just in tone and feel, hardwood can actually make your home easier to heat. It conducts and holds heat better than carpet and you may find it easier to maintain the temperature of your home if you are replacing carpet with hardwood.


How Do I Choose Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?

Solid Hardwood Planks
are made from a single piece of wood. You will notice from the side of a plank that it has a continuous grain. (In contrast, LVP or LVT will show characteristic layers.)

  • Installation takes more work with a special floor nailer, sanding, and finishing.
  • Less prone to chipping because it is solid throughout.
  • Not recommended for rooms with a higher probability of getting wet. Avoid installing in bathrooms, laundry, and kitchens.
  • It has a higher chance of expanding and contracting in fluctuating temperatures and should only be installed at or above ground.
Engineered Hardwood Planks 
have a plywood core with a hardwood veneer applied on top. You will notice layers from the side of a  plank.

  • It has a lower chance of expanding and contracting due to fluctuating temperatures. It can be installed in basements.
  • Installation can be easier and involve glue, nails, or even simply snapping together.
  • More prone to chipping because of the veneer.
  • It has better moisture resistance and can be installed safely in a larger variety of rooms.
