Our own unique style is often reflected in the way we design and decorate our home. There are several types of hardwood flooring species including oak, hickory, cherry, walnut, and maple.
As one of the most comprehensive flooring stores Vista, CA has to offer, you should have no trouble finding the right wood species to fit the style of your home. In addition to wood species, hardwood flooring is divided up into few other common types:
- Solid - Traditional hardwood flooring option. Consists of natural wood planks. Can last for decades because it can be refinished periodically to offset wear and tear.
- Engineered - Involves planks made of multiple thin layers of resin, compressed wood, and polymers on the inside. Covered with a layer of real hardwood on the outside. Provide the look of solid hardwood floors for a lower price.
- Unfinished - Can be installed without a finish or stain. This is standard with many solid hardwood floors. After installation, the finish and stain are applied which results in a smoother surface. The floorboards are installed first before being sanded and having the stain and finish applied, which eliminates any differences in the height of the individual planks.
- Prefinished - Can also come with the stain and finish already applied helping to make the installation process go quickly and efficiently. Also eliminates the risk of exposure to toxic fumes from stains and finishes that can occur when installing unfinished hardwood floors.
