Which Hardwood Flooring Should I Choose?

When choosing your flooring, consider your interior design. Do you prefer a chic, elevated look, or are you into the coastal vibe? Whichever style you prefer, there’s a hardwood flooring option for you! Some of the hardwood flooring options we provide include:


  • A wide range of hardwood species, including Oak, Hickory, Red Maple, and more!


  • Stains and colors to match your interior, ranging from dark to light.


  • We offer specific grains to match your room decor.


Keep in mind that hardwood is a natural material, and the look and style of your flooring may vary. However, we provide hardwood flooring styles to suit just about all of our customers’ needs!


Solid vs. Engineered: Which One Works Best For Me?


  • Solid Hardwood: As the name suggests, solid hardwood is made of just that, solid wood. Solid hardwood is durable and versatile, and it offers an incredibly long lifespan. Solid wood flooring comes in a variety of looks and finishes, and it can be refinished multiple times throughout the year. Keep in mind that solid hardwood flooring is susceptible to warping and water damage if not properly maintained throughout the year.


  • Engineered Hardwood: Engineered hardwood is a modern alternative to solid planks. Engineered hardwood is manufactured in multiple layers of composite wood. Engineered hardwood is more durable than solid hardwood. This type of flooring is less susceptible to water damage, and it can be installed in high moisture areas, including laundry rooms, kitchens, and hallways.


Can I Refinish My Hardwood Flooring?


Yes! Two of the most common ways to refinish your hardwood flooring include:



  • Sanding: Use a drum sander with different-sized grits to sand your wood planks. Fill any cracks with wood filler and then apply your stain.


  • Buffing: Use a buffing tool with a series of screen grits to restore your hardwood’s luster. After buffing, seal your flooring with a water-based finish or polyurethane.
