Hardwood has been the go-to flooring choice for generations. You can't go wrong with this durable flooring since it complements any type of decor. Select unfinished solid hardwood or choose to have the flooring prefinished in the factory with at least four coats of ultraviolet-cured urethane resin. Engineered hardwood, another prefinished option, has a top layer of hardwood. Prefinished strips and planks can be laid in one day while an unfinished wood floor takes about two weeks to complete. Choose the latter if you like a flush look or if the wood species or stain you want does not come in prefinished styles. A&D Carpets and Hardwood is a hardwood flooring retailer and installer that can complete any type of hardwood flooring project.

Wood flooring

Usually, solid wood is nailed or glued to the subfloor while engineered wood fits together to float over the subfloor. The latter can be installed in basements since it resists water. Hardwood floors do not trap allergens like mold spores or dust and dirt. Wood is an all-natural flooring material that is sustainable. High-quality brands can be expected to last for generations. Solid wood planks and strips can be sanded down, stained, and resealed several times to make the floor look new again. Engineered wood that is 2mm or more can be refinished at least once. Wood species that have a high hardness rating on the Janka Hardness Scale perform the best. Ash, cherry, oak, and maple work well in high traffic areas of the home.
