The Different Types of Wood Flooring
A single solid piece of wood is considered solid hardwood. Something you want to keep in mind, is that to attain the most durable kind of hardwood, you have to know where it’s sourced from. Being that hardwood can vary in quality, you want to make sure you’re getting exactly what you’re paying for. At Tri-Point Flooring we offer solid hardwood floors which are domestically sourced in the United States. Most of our hardwoods feature prized Appalachian lumber which is highly regarded for its consistency in color, stability, tightly refined grain, as well as smooth and consistent installation.
Another great hardwood flooring option is engineered wood. Engineered wood flooring is made up of several layers off wood and is topped off with a layer of 100% natural wood. The layers under the top hardwood layer are pressed together creating a very stable core. The benefit to engineered wood flooring is that it can be installed in places where hardwood floor installation isn’t even an option. The ideal places to install engineered wood floors is over concrete, over radiant heating systems, and in basements.
No matter which type of hardwood flooring you choose, we will be happy to install them for you with our dedicated hardwood installation crew. You may purchase your own hardwood flooring or purchase ours. Once your project is complete it is your responsibility to maintain proper temperature and humidity conditions constant. Excessive moisture will void any and all warranties. (ideal conditions range from 30% to 50% humidity.)
