The basics of hardwood flooring

When you need to supply your clients with high-quality hardwood flooring, you should know there are plenty of options that cater to every possible need. This product line ensures excellent visual appeal, durability, and one of the most extended lifespans in the flooring industry. Here are more facts about wood floors, which serve property management, realtors, stores, and installers well.

Which type of hardwood flooring is best?

Depending on your client's requirements, solid and engineered flooring offers excellent benefits, including attractive appearance options that never go out of style. The timeless elegance can come from species, texture, color, or installation layout, especially when working with a specific décor element. However, engineered wood flooring is an excellent alternative to solid products in spaces with common dampness, humidity, moisture, and spills. Both product lines offer pre-finished and site-finished options, each with its own benefits. With pre-finished flooring, you'll have fewer color choices, a harder finish, and a fast and easy installation service. Site-finished materials must be sanded, stained, sealed, and finished on-site, but they offer extensive choices in each one. Pre-finished engineered flooring could be a great choice if you need a quick installation with durable, long-lasting results, with wood floors that can last more than 30 years. Installation layouts are the same for both types of hardwood flooring and can include patterns like herringbone, chevron, and wide-plank. Each installation works with specific styles, so one may serve your clients better than the rest, so sharing information is essential.
