Engineered and Solid Wood Flooring Installation
If you’re on somewhat of a budget, engineered hardwood flooring is an excellent choice. Engineered wood flooring is created by gluing several layers of wood together and then covering this with a veneer of more expensive or more beautiful wood. The layering effect gives this type of flooring excellent stability, and you can use this in any area of your home. However, due to the limited thickness of the top layer of hardwood veneer, you will have a limited amount of area that you can sand and refinish over a longer period of time.
Unfinished Hardwood Flooring
Unfinished hardwood is an excellent choice if you’d like to choose the type or color of wood stain. You’ll be able to choose a custom stain and have it applied before the final sealant is applied. In addition, this type of flooring will allow for the finish to penetrate deep into the wood, helping to seal the seams that are found between the boards. This can help to prevent any water from seeping in between the boards. This benefit is an important consideration when installing wood flooring in the kitchen or bathroom.
Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Is Ready To Go
Prefinished wood is as simple as it sounds: the wood is stained in a factory and then installed inside a home. There are a huge variety of options for prefinished wood, and the benefits are clear: it’s already finished, no sanding or staining needed! This can mean a faster installation of the whole finished floor. You can also walk on this type of flooring immediately and won’t notice any odors.
When you’re working with wood floors, you really can’t go wrong. Each unique type will have its own natural beauty and fit in well with the decor of each room, whether that’s modern, country, traditional or something else. You can place hardwood flooring in any type of room and enjoy it for many years. If you’re interested in hardwood floor installation for new construction, contact Abita Wood Floors today!
